Illinois: Anti-Gun Politicians Continue Attempts to Ram Gun Control Scheme Through State House

Monday, March 18, 2013

A Vote is Imminent – Contact your state Representative NOW!

As previously reported by the NRA-ILA, 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.  Due to Madigan’s trickery and forceful behavior, votes on these amendments have been too close for comfort.  House Bills 1155 and 1156 are some of the bills being used as vehicles, and have recently had extreme anti-gun amendments filed on them.

At this time, the list of amendments to these two bills is growing by the minute and contains everything from forcing gun owners to buy $1 million liability insurance and imposing severe restrictions on future Right-to-Carry laws by mandating location restrictions and multiple licenses, to bans on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines.  You can view amendments added to HB1156 here and amendments to HB1155 here.

Among others, Amendment 12 to HB 1156 was just filed and would make it unlawful for anyone in Illinois to possess a magazine capable of accepting – and any magazine that could be converted to accept - more than ten rounds.  This would effectively ban ALL commonly owned magazines.  This issue was defeated last week by only a narrow margin – so it is important that your state Representative understand that a YES vote on Amendment 12 is an unacceptable violation of your rights!

Time is of the essence:  These anti-gun amendments will be voted on in the state House TOMORROW 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!  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.
