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!

If this somehow passes when will the 1st “Shot heard across the country take place??”
It will likely be the first shot to limit gun rights and the first lawsuit will be filed when the act is enforced.
Remember to tell them to vote NO on homosexual marriage, too.
These are the Usual Suspects.
Ping for reference
Why do see visions of the books “Unintended Consequences” or “Term Limits” becoming more and more likely?
Damn...poor grammar first thing in the morning doesn’t set a good pace for the rest of the day.
God that state is pathetic.

Illinois is not a state to lay down their guns.
Read. They pulled it in the Senate but introduced it in the House.
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.
