Illinois Legislative Update! Continue Contacting Your Legislators!

Friday, February 17, 2006

Anti-gun legislation continues to pose a threat in the General Assembly.  Both HB 4693, a handgun dealer licensing bill, and HB 4694, a mandatory storage bill, passed out of the Human Services Committee and are awaiting action by the full House of Representatives.  Anti-gun legislators continue their frantic attempts to build up support for HB 2414, which seeks to ban certain semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, as well as .50 cal. rifles.  The latest attempt, Amendment 7, indicates how poorly worded this bill is, as well as how confused anti-gun lawmakers are when it comes to firearms.  Proponents of HB 2414 felt this new language was necessary in order to exempt air rifles from the scope of the bill.  Please continue to contact representatives and urge them to oppose HB 2414, HB 4693, and HB 4694.  (For more details on these bills, please refer to last week’s Grassroots Alert). 

On the pro-gun side, keep contacting representatives and urge them to support HB 4529, sponsored by Representative John E. Bradley (D-117), which would allow FOID card applicants to sue the Illinois State Police if that agency fails to act on applications within the 30-day time period mandated by state law.  While there are other anti-gun and pro-gun bills that have been introduced¾including SB 2963, Senator Bill Brady’s (R-44) pro-gun reform that seeks to repeal the FOID card system¾most remain bogged down and relatively inactive.
