Illinois Legislative Update - Please Call Today!

Friday, May 6, 2005

This week, by vote of 117-0, the Illinois House of Representatives passed SB 2103, which seeks to improve the existing range protection law in Illinois. The bill now awaits action by Governor Rod Blagojevich (D).

Please contact Governor Blagojevich at (217) 782-6830, and urge him to sign SB 2103.

 

Still awaiting a final floor vote in the House are SB 53, which seeks to allow the mail order sale of ammunition to Illinois FOID card holders, and SB 2104, a preemption bill that seeks to establish statewide, uniform standards on the transportation of firearms.

Please contact your State Representative and urge him or her to support SB 53, and SB 2104.

 

On the anti-gun side, HB 990, which seeks to create the bureaucratic redundancy of requiring all FFL holders to also be licensed as firearm dealers by the state, has been revived, and now awaits a floor vote in the House. In addition, there is word that legislation banning certain semi-automatic firearms and .50 cal. rifles, most likely HB 2414, will also be revived. Although anti-gun extremists have failed on a number of occasions to maintain enough support for banning firearms to call their legislation for a vote, there are indications that these gun banners may get another chance to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

It is critical that you contact your State Representative and urge him to oppose HB 990 and HB 2414, or any other legislative vehicle that would ban legal firearms from the law-abiding citizens of Illinois. Your State Representative can be reached at (217) 782-8223.
