In the Illinois State House there are six bills that are aimed at weakening your Second Amendment rights.
House Bill 731 would expand the current mandatory storage law and make it virtually impossible for law-abiding gun owners to store a firearm in a way that would leave it readily accessible for self-defense;
House Bill 758 would create a virtual ban on the private transfer of firearms;
House Bill 796 would create a new state-based licensing bureaucracy for firearm dealers;
House Bill 4357 would ban countless semi-automatic firearms and .50 cal. rifles and ammunition;
House Bill 4393 would place a limit on the number of handguns an individual may lawfully purchase;
Finally, Senate Bill 1007 would ban the manufacture, possession, delivery, sale, and purchase of standard capacity ammunition magazines capable of holding more than ten (10) cartridges. This bill is worded so broadly that it would also ban certain firearms, such as some Henry rifles, which have attached tubular magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition. This lever-action rifle, whose design dates back to the 1860s, could be prohibited under SB 1007, making this bill far more than a magazine ban.
Any of these bills could be heard by the full House at any time, so it is critical that you contact your State Representative and urge him or her to oppose all of these attacks on law-abiding gun owners and the Second Amendment. Contact information for your State Representative can be found here.
