Gun Ban Headed to Illinois Senate Floor Any Day!

Friday, March 23, 2007

 

Senate focus shifts to all-out attack on .50 cal. rifles, as Senate Bill 1471 awaits Senate floor vote that could take place any day.

 

SB1471, sponsored by former gun-ban lobbyist and current State Senator Dan Kotowski (D-33), will prohibit the sale, manufacture, purchase, possession, or carrying of .50 caliber rifles.  Anti-gun extremists have lost some traction with attempts to ban semi-automatic firearms, and have now turned up the heat on .50 cal. rifles. This change in tactics has turned the focus on banning countless semi-automatic firearms to banning a whole class of bolt-action guns.

 

It is critical that supporters of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms contact their State Senators at (217) 782-5715 and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE SB 1471 and to protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

 

And while some attention has been shifted away from SB16, sponsored by State Senator Antonio Munoz (D-1), that does not mean it is not still a threat.  SB 16 seeks to ban countless semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns, certain parts that can be added to a firearm, magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.  This bill would also ban the sale of .50 caliber rifles and ammunition, and require anyone currently in possession of the effected firearms, magazines and ammunition feeding devices, parts, or ammunition to register their possessions with the State Police within 90 days of the law being enacted.  In other words, a ban and a registration scheme, all rolled into one bill.

 

After urging State Senators to oppose SB 1471, callers should also remind them to also oppose SB 16.
