Illinois: Anti-Gun Legislators are Attempting to Sneak their Agenda into Unrelated Legislation

Yesterday, Illinois Senator Patricia Van Pelt proposed Senate Amendment 1 to a shell bill, Senate Bill 233.  This comprehensive anti-gun amendment attempts to sneak an unenforceable provision into its language without any guidance or clarification.  Please contact your state Senator immediately and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Amendment 1 to Senate Bill 233.

The anti-gun provisions in Senate Amendment 1 impose a vague regulation on firearm dealers without defining or explaining how State, county or local governments are supposed to do so.  The penalty for not doing so opens the government up to civil lawsuit.  This anti-gun amendment seeks to hold firearm dealers responsible for the acts of criminals and be regulated in such a way to prevent the government from being sued.

This vaguely written and wholly unenforceable anti-gun amendment must be stopped. Please contact your state Senator immediately and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Amendment 1 to Senate Bill 233.
