Dear Illinois NRA Member,

The Illinois House of Representatives will soon consider several pro-gun bills, and legislators needs to hear from you! More than a dozen pro-gun bills are being considered by the House, and it is important that you call today to voice your support for these bills.

Among these are bills that would bring Right-to-Carry to Illinois (HB 2607, HB 2567), preempt local municipalities from enacting certain restrictions on firearms (HB 2568, HB937, HB 936), legislation that establishes remedies for law-abiding citizens should their application for a FOID card take longer than 30 days (HB 136), and a bill (HB 716) to clarify when the waiting period on firearm purchases begins.

In addition to the aforementioned bills, NRA is also supporting legislation that would eliminate waiting period requirements when trading one firearm for another (HB 340), require the return of seized firearms when a defendant is found not guilty or charges are dismissed (HB 824), require the destruction of records on individuals when a firearm transfer has not been denied (HB 935), require any local ordinance prohibiting firearms to include an exception for self-defense (HB 478), and a gun show bill (HB 341) that includes destruction of records language (as in HB 935) and preemption language (as in HB 2568, HB 937, and HB 936).

Please contact your legislator and urge their support of these NRA-supported measures.
