Illinois - Urge Your Legislators To Oppose Any Gun Bans

Friday, April 16, 2004


The Legislature will be back in session the week of April 19, and Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) will almost certainly be promoting Chicago Mayor Richard Daley`s (D) proposed ban on semi-automatic firearms. It is critical that you contact your state Legislators and urge them to oppose any gun bans. We can also expect Governor Blagojevich to begin promoting legislation that would seek to establish a registration scheme for all guns. Please be sure to let your lawmakers know this invasion of privacy and attack on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms is unacceptable.

Alternatively, there are pro-gun bills to promote. HB 3989 is pending in the Senate, and SB 2163 is awaiting action in the House. These bills seek to lower from 21 to 18 the age at which law-abiding Illinois citizens can sign for their own Firearms Owners Identification (FOID) Cards. Also, the House could soon vote on SB 2165, which seeks to provide an affirmative defense for a gun owner if he uses a firearm prohibited by local ordinance in defense of himself or others, and SB 2386, which seeks to prohibit civil suits against a gun owner who uses a firearm to defend himself or others. In addition, the Senate may take action on HB 4075, which is the House version of SB 2165. Please contact your state lawmakers and urge them to support these pro-gun reforms, and ask them to oppose any efforts to ban firearms or register your guns.

The Senate can be reached by calling (217) 782-4517, and the House can be reached at 217-782-8223. Finally, please call the Governor, at (217) 782-6830, and urge him to drop his anti-gun agenda.
