It’s all political. The leftists don’t want people they disagree with to own guns.
The citizens of Illinois can always refuse to cooperate. Their defense is the Second Amendment.
I knew they would try something.
Odds are, it’ll probably pass.
I have thought the exact same thing recently. I have looked into it, and they are very nice weapons, and moderately priced (~$200, plus $60 per additional cylinder). And a .44 caliber bullet is quite formidable, whether propelled by black powder or modern propellents. Worked for a lot of guys in the West back in the day... And you don't get on anyone's list, since these are not considered worthy of background checks, etc. Quite a perk in my book...
HaHA! When is turn in your drugs day!
Funny thing The rest of the modern world will move forward and Chicago will be killing people with Knives, Swords, Poison, Baseball bats, Cars, Plastic bags, Tire Irons, and any other blunt force item of questionable nature, and rocks! Hell we’ll just continue to shoot em!
Sorry for the new post but Question!
Wasn’t the first 45 cal ACP pistol minted in 1909?
If the IL RATs are dumb enough to pass this bill, its enforcement will be enjoined immediately by a federal judge (or by the 5th Circuit), which would be the third time in three years that IL is b1tch-slapped for its gun-grabbing by the federal judiciary.
If you ban every semi-auto with no grandfathering, why would anyone need a 10 round magazine?
I don’t think this or anything close to it will pass or survive longer than 2 minutes without a successful court challenge, but...
Mr. Cullerton, there are at least 1.4 million legal gun owners in Illinois. There are about 3,600 employees (note, that’s employees, not patrol officers) of the Illinois State Police. How do you plan on collecting the firearms from those 1.4 million people? Do you really expect the State’s Attorneys of Illinois to spend the time and money to prosecute them all if they refuse to become defenseless?
This is a “test case” compliments of Rahm Emmanuel. First Obamacare began in Cook County on January 1, now this. We are prisoners of Cook County.
Stay, stand-up and fight it. Running from it will not fix it.
We may have to come there to help out at a later date. If it gets rough here, I am not going to run to Mexico. Wait, Mexico is already here....bad comparison...
All kidding aside, time to make a stand. Hand writing is on the wall as to what our FERAL Congress is going to do. We have to take the fight to the State level and you do not need to run, you need to organize.
“People in IL, not known for mental acumen, will truly support this sweeping bill. They want to be protected by the government.”
Not true. There are lots and lots of gun owners in Illinois, even in Cook County, and surreptitiously in Chicago itself. And of course, all the criminals are armed. Anyhow, there is a big movement against letting any bill pass in the State legislature, and many Dem legislators are in districts with lots of gun owners. Not everyone in IL is a mental midget. Most of the low information voters are in the city of Chicago proper. Along with their liberal slave masters.
The correct answer is to take to the phones/streets immediately and try to stop this unconstitutional and evil gun grab. If that fails, the next answer is to resist evil, including (but not limited to) fighting in court. After that, there are a number of options, and among the presumably legal ones would be air guns, where I found a sweet fully automatic air rifle online that I am checking out. There are also air rifles as big as .45 caliber, black powder (which can be made convenient), crossbows (high lethality, which I like for the application), and many other options even for those who choose to stay within this unjust and unconstitutional proposed law.
If I lived in Illinois and was limited to bolt action and actually following that law, I would get a big one where the first shot does the trick. There are some very nice bolt action rifles where one shot would be just fine. They are expensive, but AR-15s are expensive now too (a dealer I know just sold a nice, fully-loaded and accurized AR for over $5k), and I imagine someone from IL could sell/trade rifle for rifle with someone from another state who wanted the rate of fire and would give up the stopping power in return.
Gun control has worked beautifully in Chicago ... well, if by ‘beautifully’ you mean giving a billion dollar industry over to organized crime.... AND having high murder rates...
Does it apply to the police as well?
The DSM-V should have included Liberalism as one of it’s mental disorders.
....If I lived in Illinois and was limited to bolt action and actually following that law, I would get a big one where the first shot does the trick. There are some very nice bolt action rifles where one shot would be just fine....
True that.....just got thru cleaning one that holds sub MOA out to a 1000yds....got less than 3 grand in it scope and all 308 24” barrel
Stupid government actions have consequences.
LOW INFORMATION POLITICIAN.
