Mayor Daley Unveils Gun Control Package in Illinois!

Friday, February 22, 2008

Please Contact Your State Representative and State Senator Today! 

In the wake of the recent tragedy at Northern Illinois University, anti-gun extremists in Illinois and across the nation are working to exploit the horror felt by all at the senseless killing of five students.  This week, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley (D) announced his annual push to restrict our Right to Keep and Bear Arms by conjuring up the image of the tragedy at NIU.  "The tragic deaths at Northern Illinois last week are a fresh reminder," Daley stated, as he promoted efforts to ban countless semi-automatic firearms, .50 cal. Rifles, and ammunition (House Bill 4357 and Senate Bill 1912), implement a limit on the number of handguns an individual may lawfully purchase (House Bill 4393),  and require ammunition serialization/encoding (House Bill’s 4259, 4269, and 4349), just to name a few of the proposals.  Of course, none of these schemes would have had any impact on what happened at NIU.  Even long-time anti-gun Illinois State Senator John Cullerton (D-6) "acknowledged that the newest legislation may not have prevented" the tragedy, reported the Chicago Tribune. 

Daley's anti-gun assault will also include mandatory storage (House Bill 731), firearm dealer licensing (House Bill 4541 and Senate Bill 1919), a virtual ban on the private transfer of firearms (House Bill 758 and Senate Bill 2280), and a ban on magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds (House Bill 5169, as well as a provision of HB 4357 and SB 1912).  This will likely be only the start of Daley's anti-gun shopping list.  And how does Daley feel about law-abiding citizens who oppose these attacks on freedom?  He likens them to common criminals, stating, "I know many people may not appreciate these proposals - especially the gang bangers, the drug dealers and the thugs who terrorize our neighborhoods with their weapons."  Some of these proposals may be pushed through committees next week, while others could see action later.   

At this time, it is critical that law-abiding gun owners in Illinois contact their State Representative and State Senator and urge them to oppose these attacks on the Second Amendment, especially considering they are being shamelessly promoted as a response to a crime none of them could have prevented.
