Earlier this week, thanks to the many phone calls and emails made by the pro-gun community, House Bill 758 failed to pass out of the House. HB758 would have created a ban on the private transfer of firearms. Also this week, House Bill 4357, introduced by State Representative Edward Acevedo (D-2), was not brought up for a floor vote likely due to the lack of support in the House. HB4357 would ban countless semi-automatic handguns, rifles, and shotguns, as well as .50 cal. rifles and ammunition. Thank you to all of the Second Amendment supporters in Illinois who made their voice heard this week!
There are still several anti-gun bills that could come up for a vote at anytime, so please keep checking your email and http://www.nraila.org/ for updates. To view a complete list of legislation that we are watching, please click here.
