Your Action Makes a Difference – Contact Your Representative TODAY!

Next week, the Illinois House will consider extreme anti-gun legislation that will ban commonly owned semi automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines. The particular language will most likely be attached on the House floor as amendments to shell bills, so no language is currently available.  While under a federal court order to pass a state Right-to-Carry law, anti-gun Chicago politicians continue to play games with your right to self-defense.  Rather than working on measures to reduce violent crime, they continue to play politics and attack the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

The NRA-ILA will continue to send legislative updates as details become available.  However, it is of the utmost importance that you act NOW to stop this gun and magazine ban and registration scheme.  Your action stopped these attempts in Springfield earlier this year and it is important that you stay vigilant!  Contact your state Representative IMMEDIATELY and politely urge them to oppose the banning of any semi-automatics or magazines.

Madigan. House Bill 1155, a bill sponsored by Representative Michael Madigan (D-22) will be among the legislation considered tomorrow, and Right to Carry amendments will most likely be offered to this shell bill. Anti-gun legislators like Rep. Mike Madigan have been trying to sabotage efforts to strengthen recognition of Second Amendment rights in Illinois, and can be expected to offer hostile amendments to House Bill 1155 which would contain weak and incredibly flawed carry provisions.
