Illinois: House Judiciary Committee to Hold Hearings on Gun Control Legislation

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Contact Committee Members Immediately and Attend These Hearings

On February 19 and 22, the Illinois House Judiciary Committee will hold hearings to discuss comprehensive gun control legislation.  We urge all Illinois residents to attend these hearings and urge legislators to oppose anti-gun legislation that does nothing more than penalize law-abiding gun owners by restricting the right to self-defense.  It is important that you plan to testify at these hearings and stand up for the Second Amendment in Illinois.  You can sign a witness slip to testify for either hearing date hereThe House Judiciary Committee may be limiting the amount of testimony they will hear, so it is important that you register your opinions with the online witness slip as soon as possible.

Dates, times and locations for both House Judiciary Committee hearings are listed below:

Tuesday, February 19th at 12:00 NOON

Room 114 Capitol Building in Springfield

 

Friday, February 22nd at 10:00 AM
