Illinois Gun Shows Under Attack (SB 947)

Saturday, May 1, 2004

SB 947, an attack on Illinois gun shows will be taken up by the Senate. The bill seeks to tax firearm sales, register transfers
and increase the waiting period. SB 947 is being promoted in spite of anti-gun organizations admitting that there is no gun show loophole in Illinois. Please contact your Senators and respectfully urge them to oppose SB 947. You can find contact information for your Senator by using the "Write Your Representatives" feature at www.NRAILA.org.
