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

Illinois is not a state to lay down their guns.

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.

Be a shame if some of the traitors voting for this were found to be victims of accidental hangings come Monday morning.

Yup, a real tragedy.

This is great news. Let the people know exactly who voted to confiscate an inalienable right. Lets get this over with.

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.

I just wrote to Mike Connelly. Based on his FB comments, I think he will oppose the goofyness. Let’s see the ILL-ANNOY legislature get serious about the court-ordered conceal-carry legislation. The gun-grabbing Sodomites need to be blocked.

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.
