Protect Your Right of Self-Defense!
On Thursday May 1, the Illinois House of Representatives passed House Bill 5191. This dangerous bill would create a new path that the anti-gun community could take in order to revoke FOID cards from gun owners with children. Your FOID card could be revoked if a minor is able to gain access to your firearm on more then one occasion, or if the government has decided (with little opportunity for a challenge) that your child has met the basic criteria for a severe or major mood disorder or severe conduct disorder, in which case your FOID card would also be revoked. Much of this revocation process can be based on allegations that may not be supported by independent judicial findings, or "documented" cases where the FOID Card holder is unable to challenge or appeal the "documentation". HB5191 will now head to the State Senate and we must let our opposition be known.
Please call your State Senator and urge him or her to defeat this outrageous bill. You can find the contact information for you State Senator by clicking here.
