Illinois: Gun Seizure Language Introduced

On February 21st, the Illinois state Senate added Senate Amendment 001 to Senate Bill 559 which allows for the seizure of firearms without due process.  Please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 559.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator.

Senate Amendment 001 to Senate Bill 559, introduced by Senator Don Harmon (D-39), would create the “Lethal Violence Order of Protection” (LVOP) to allow an individual’s family members or law enforcement to petition the court for an ex parte or one year restraining order if they consider the individual to be a danger to themselves or others simply because the individual owns, possesses or purchases a firearm.  Under this bill, an ex parte order would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief, unsubstantiated affidavit made by a petitioner and absent any input made by the individual on which the order is targeted.  If enacted, this legislation would require the respondent to surrender their firearms, FOID, and/or concealed carry license to law enforcement. In addition, it would require law enforcement to search for and seize any firearms that the petitioner or court alleges is possessed.  This legislation is ripe for abuse by individuals that disagree with the Second Amendment, and the mere insinuation that gun ownership makes you a danger to yourself or others is offensive and insulting.

In addition, the state Senate also added Senate Amendment 001 to Senate Bill 337 to delay the enactment of certain provisions of the Senate Bill 1657 to license firearm dealers already licensed by the federal government.  Your NRA will keep you updated on these bills.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button to contact your state Senator and urge them to oppose Senate Amendment 001 to Senate Bill 559!
