Illinois Seeks to Ban Firearms!

Friday, February 24, 2006

On Thursday, the Illinois House of Representatives failed to pass HB 4694, sponsored by Representative Deborah Graham (D-78), the mandatory storage bill that would leave otherwise law-abiding gun owners criminally liable if they store their personal protection firearms in a manner that is not approved by law.  While good news, this anti-personal protection bill is far from defeated, as it was kept viable by a procedural maneuver. 

 

HB 2414, sponsored by Representative Edward Acevedo (D-2), which seeks to ban countless semi-automatic handguns, rifles, and shotguns, as well as .50 caliber rifles, is also still pending, and could be voted on any day. 

 

Finally, HB 4693, a handgun dealer licensing bill sponsored by Representative Deborah Graham (D-78), is also still pending.  Please continue to contact your State Representative and urge him to vote against HB 2414, HB 4693, and HB 4694. 

 

As for pro-gun legislation, the House passed HB 4529, sponsored by Representative John Bradley (D-117), on Wednesday with a vote of 80-29-4 (4 lawmakers voting “Present”).  This bill 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.  This bill is now in the Senate, so be sure to call your State Senator and urge him to support HB 4529.  The contact phone number for your State Representative is (217) 782-8223.  The contact phone number for the State Senate is (217) 782-5715.
