Illinois:  Committee Passes Radical Gun Control Legislation

Today, the House Judiciary Committee passed anti-gun House Bill 4117 by a 7 to 5 vote.  HB 4117 will be read for a second time tonight and then is expected to be considered tomorrow on the House Floor.  It is imperative that you contact your state Representative and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 4117.


House Bill 4117 mirrors federal legislation proposed by anti-gun Senator Dianne Feinstein.  This bill seeks to place bans on many popular “trigger modification devices.”  The broad and overreaching definition in HB 4117 could potentially ban firearm modifications such as match grade triggers, muzzle brakes, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Again, it is important that you contact your state Representative and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 4117.​​
