Illinois: House Speaker Continues Assault on the Second Amendment

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Trickery and Chicago-style politics employed to ram gun control scheme through state House

House Speaker Mike Madigan continues to force votes on dozens of amendments filed on shell bills in an effort to build his own omnibus gun control bill.  Your state Representative needs to hear from you NOW!  Due to Madigan’s trickery and forceful behavior, votes on these amendments have been too close for comfort.  Time is of the essence:  More anti-gun amendments could come up on the House floor this afternoon, and anti-gun politicians are turning up the heat to get your state Representative to vote against your Second Amendment rights in Springfield.  Urge your state Representative to stand strong in the face of these deceptive tactics, and vote to protect YOUR Second Amendment rights!

At this time, NRA-ILA has heard that a strict magazine ban amendment, which failed only narrowly, will be heard again today.  The House floor votes are close, so every call AND e-mail to your state Representative will make a difference. 

Remind your state Representative that he or she represents you!  Call AND e-mail them NOW.  Don’t let them get away with punishing law-abiding citizens for the acts of criminals! 

Contact information for your state Representative can be found here.
