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.

If you hire a security force, or agency, then you are a gun-owner by proxy. We need to start referring to these people as proxy gun owners.
“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

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.
It’s going no where. This is just political cover for when the IL liberals are “forced” to pass CC by the courts. Illinois is never what it seems. This isn’t the Land of Lincoln, but the Land of Illusions.
or if they accidentally stumbled under the descending blade of a guillotine....
a real shame!!
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.
Not time for that quite yet. The tar and feathers must come first so their next public pronouncements will be made sans hair and eyebrows.
certainly not in the rural areas.
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.
Is anyone else seeing this as a possibly other than me?
If it does, let's say 1/2 of those checks were made for existing owners. So, that means 35,000,000 new owners. If we assume 1% of the population are unstable wackos on meds, then there are 350,000 new guns out there in the hands of questionable people. Is this number enough to explain a rise in misuse?
Please feel free to adjust my figures for any other factors, I'd be interested in a discussion.
Best post yet.
So what happened???
Did they have a vote or not?
Based upon his actions, If Lincoln were alive today he would be spearheading the gun ban surge
Good questions; I don't know.
ILLINOIS HOUSE ADJOURNS WITH NO MOVEMENT ON GUN BILLS BUT DO NOT BE MISLED
As reported earlier, the House version of the Cullerton Gun Grab Bill was supposed to be debated before the House Judiciary Committee I at 2:00 PM today. The Chairman of the committee convened the committee, announced that there would be no gun bills debated for the rest of the session, then adjourned.
Hm, so they could just vote on them w/o debate, right?
Dead in committee. As long as they don’t re-convene before the deadline on Wednesday at least...
Keep an eye on them.
Absurd revisionist history. Don’t try again.
