Illinois State Rifle Association ^ | January 5, 2013 | steelers6

Posted on 01/04/2013 11:07:39 PM PST by Steelers6

LATE BREAKING ALERT – NEXT VOTE ON SEMI AUTO BAN WILL TAKE PLACE SUNDAY YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

After getting nowhere in the Senate, the gun controllers have taken their campaign to destroy your rights to the Illinois House. Earlier today, Amendment #1 to SB2899 was introduced in the Illinois House of Representatives. Sponsored by rabidly anti-gun Rep. Eddie Acevedo, the amendment would do two things to you:

1. It would pick your pocket to pay for the confiscation and destruction of your own guns.

2. It would ban more than 50% of the rifles and more than 80% of handguns owned by Illinois citizens.

THIS BILL WILL BE VOTED ON BY THE HOUSE JUDICIARY 1 COMMITTEE ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON – YOU MUST ACT NOW!

To help save your guns, please contact the following Representatives and politely tell them that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you do not support SB2899 and that you expect them to vote the amendment down.

1. Rep. Elaine Nekritz,. (217) 558-1004 and (847) 257-0450

2. Rep. John Bradley, (217) 782-1051 and (618) 997-9697

3. Rep. Jill Tracy, (217) 782-8096 and (217) 223-0833

4. Rep. Michael Connelly, (217) 782-8028 and (630) 579-4848

5. Rep. Dwight Kay, (217) 782-8018 and (618) 307-9200

6. Rep. Lou Lang, (217) 782-1252 and (847) 673-1131

7. Rep. Sid Mathias, (217) 782-1664 and (847) 222-0061

8. Rep. André M. Thapedi, (217) 782-1702 and (773) 873-4444

9. Rep. Arthur Turner, (217) 782-8116 and (773) 277-4700

10. Rep. Ann Williams, (217) 782-2458 and (773) 880-9082

11. Rep. Michael Zalewski, (217) 782-5280 and (708) 442-6500

Sneaky Lame duck tricks, just like the fiscal cliff nonsense. Have votes and most likely noone to take calls. Gun rights people will probably have to show up at the Capitol to be heard. Staffs normally not in on Sunday but we'll see.

It will likely be the first shot to limit gun rights and the first lawsuit will be filed when the act is enforced.

So, correct me if I’m wrong, but if passes in the House but not the Senate it can’t be signed into law. Is that correct? If so, then why try and pass it in one house and not the other?

They are pulling out the stops to get this though by hook or crook. They can be stopped if voters put enough fear in those who were reelected.

They are desperate because they have a court order to institute a concealed carry permit system, and they see this as a last ditch to disarm the citizens.

Defeat them here, and they will be disheartened on the national level. This is the time to push hard, when we have lots of cards to play with and numbers and time on our side.

Use your phone now, to prevent Churchillian alternatives later. A phone call or two is easy. Trying to repeal a draconian law is hard.

I think anyone that voted for Obama should not be allowed to to own guns. Guns should be kept out of the hands of those who are mentally incompetent. We have seen where this leads and it must be stopped.

The limousine elites with their personal entourages of highly armed private contractor security are behind the agenda and push to disarm average law abiding Americans. They want the power and they want your money and pensions too, and they want you to be totally dependent on an unanswered 911 call for your security.

Not outside of Chicago anyway.

There's no way this passes. Downstate Democrats are as protective -- if not moreso than the RINO Republican's in this state -- of their guns.

Sounds like either projection or dezinformatsia

If the downstaters can manage to fight off this nazi putsch, it'll restore a bit of faith in my native state.

No, given the massive ongoing clusterphuk that goes by the name of Chicongo, maybe 'faith' is too strong a word.

But at least not having to feel embarrassment at saying I was born in IL would be a nice change.

I called all the phone numbers listed...I got through to two reps and left messages. The rest of the mail boxes were “full”.

Those full mail boxes tell me they’re getting the message. But will they listen to what they hear?

Americans are too lazy and enamored with TV, sports, and Facebook to even march in the streets. We have come to accept having the elites step on us and our rights.

This is the vote to move the bill out of committee. It will then have to go through the real process. I would be more comfortable if it just dies on Sunday. Prayer and phone calls until then.

All kinds of things are moving too fast these days. Fear the lame ducks.

Thanks for the info, Speaker Madigan will probably not let John Bradley be on this committee, he’s a pro gun rep and a Dem. He currently has 64 Democrats and that will increase to 71 on Wednesday, veto proof majority.

It might be even more stinging to call them “gun renters”, but we surely need for someone to point out the hypocrisy every time they open their mouths.

What is the point? The number of people who actually support "gun control" are a tiny minority of the population. They have no significant number of votes. It makes much more sense to see this as a last minute desparation ploy by those ideologues who want the rest of us disarmed.

What is the point? They’ll need political cover. The money and votes from the areas these politicians are from do support gun control. This won’t pass and it’s against the national trend and the trend in law. Even liberal legal scholars admit that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right with very, very few limitations.

Why are they pushing same-sex marriage at the same time? Didn’t anybody count the votes or set this up in advance? It’s a political ploy.
