An Assault on Gun Rights in Cook County, Illinois!

Friday, December 28, 2007

Cook County is currently considering two anti-gun proposals that must be defeated!

 

The first, which is called the  "Safe Streets/Weapons Registration Ordinance”, claims to simply require the registration of all firearms and firearm owners in Cook County.  As written, however, it is an outright ban of all firearms and ammunition.  Even if you do not live in Cook County, this proposal will have a dramatic impact on you due to new restrictions on transporting firearms! 

 

The second proposed ordinance would amend the county's "Deadly Weapon Dealers Ordinance."  It seeks to completely ban all gun shows within the county, and prohibits federally licensed dealers from operating within 10 miles of another federally licensed dealer.  This will not only prohibit new gun stores, but could wipe out most existing ones.

 

Please contact the Board of Commissioners today and respectfully urge them to oppose these ordinances.  Contact information can be found below:
