Anti-Gun Bill Could Be Voted on Any Day in Illinois!

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Please Contact Your State Representative Today!

Anti-gun extremists in Illinois have been increasingly frustrated with their inability to pass legislation attacking our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. 

Faced with the possibility that they will be dealt a devastating defeat in the case of McDonald v. City of Chicago, efforts have been made to revive House Bill 180, which seeks to establish a state-based licensing scheme for all Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders that sell handguns.  That would cover the vast majority of FFL holders in Illinois, of course. 

This legislation would allow the State Police to establish rules and regulations regarding licensees, permit them to deny applicants arbitrarily under a “may-issue” system, require all firearm purchases to be registered with the State Police, and allow any police officer in the state to go into any licensed gun dealer’s shop to conduct a record review. 

Please contact your State Representative TODAY and urge them to oppose HB180.  Contact information for your State Representative can be found by clicking here.  HB180 could be voted on at any time so please make your voice heard soon.
