A new piece of anti-gun legislation needs to be noted. Whether a sign of desperation, or an indication of how ridiculous the anti-gun movement has become, House Bill 1966 was amended this week to become a ban on countless semi-automatic pistols, rifles, shotguns, and .50 caliber rifles. While not a new concept among the gun-ban crowd, the scope of this proposed ban would be unique, to say the least. Rather than ban these firearms statewide, or even within a specific municipality, this bill would ban firearms based on zip codes! Six zip codes, in fact, all within the City of Chicago, would be singled out for this ban.
Needless to say, NRA opposes this measure, but we can’t help but wonder if the next attempt at passing a gun ban in Illinois will target specific blocks, or maybe even addresses. This only goes to show that those who oppose our Right to Keep and Bear Arms will never stop trying to come up with new, and quite often ridiculous, ideas for promoting their anti-freedom agenda.
