This bill has been confirmed by a very good friend of mine who works for an IL Congressman. He sent me an email knowing that my family and I are big Illinois Hunters and he requested that we get the word out.

Senate Bill #16:

URGENT GUN RIGHTS ALERT - IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

The Illinois Senate is about to debate a ban on semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.

If passed, you would have 90 days to register your guns with the State Police or face arrest and felony prosecution.

If you were caught with an AR-15 and 4 magazines, you’d get life in prison.

THREE THINGS YOU MUST DO TO SAVE YOUR GUN RIGHTS

1. Beginning on Tuesday, March 6th, call your State Senator and POLITELY tell him or her that you are opposed to Senate Bill 16 – the Daley Assault Weapons Ban – and that you would like them to vote against Senate Bill 16 when it comes to the floor. If you do not know who your State Senator is, then visit the following web site: www.ilga.gov and then click on the “Legislator Lookup” link in the lower right hand corner of the home page. Follow the instructions at that link.

2. Pass this alert along to all your gun-owing friends; tell them to call their State Senators also.


Here is the transcript from the IL General Assembly:

http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/BillSta ... egID=27226

Quote:
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act, it is unlawful for any person within this State to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell, purchase, or possess or cause to be manufactured, delivered, sold, purchased, or possessed a semi-automatic assault weapon, an assault weapon attachment, any .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge. Provides that beginning 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act, it is unlawful for any person within this State to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell, purchase, or possess or cause to be manufactured, delivered, sold, purchased, or possessed a large capacity ammunition feeding device. Provides that these provisions do not apply to a person who possessed a prohibited weapon, device, or attachment before the effective date of this amendatory Act if the person has provided proof of ownership to the Department of State Police within 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act. Provides that on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act, such person may transfer such device only to an heir, an individual residing in another state maintaining that device in another state, or a dealer licensed as a federal firearms dealer. Specifies penalties for violations. Provides exemptions. Provides that the provisions of the Act are severable. Effective immediately.


Senate Sponsors
Sen. Antonio Munoz - Dan Kotowski - John J. Cullerton - Mattie Hunter - Rickey R. Hendon, Jacqueline Y. Collins, Iris Y. Martinez, Kimberly A. Lightford and James T. Meeks

This is very sad. IL is governed by such a p-poor group of hoodlums, I'm not sure I want to stay here. They love making ridiculous gun laws that do nothing to get guns from criminals.

last time i bought a shotgun i dont remember a seperate line for felons. that was in IA, but im not sure about IL. havent gotten one here yet.
seems like the bunch of sissies in office are hell bent on taking all guns away. its jsut a matter of time before they want to ban smaller and smaller gauges and calibers.
so... when was the last time any of you out there seen/ heard of a crime being commited with a .50? kind of beefy to be lugging around if you ask me


trust your government, they know whats best for you... :evil:

I'm not sure if politicians are truly that stupid or if they have some other hidden agenda. I really ifnd it hard to believe anyone walking upright and who was able to get enough money to get elected could be this stupid, but I could be wrong. Gunfacts.com always has good info and the last time I checked, virtually all crimes commited using guns where with guns illegally obtained. Most of those were not even through gun stores. Funny how politicians can't seem to read that. I guess it goes to show any schmuck in the country can hold an office.

Little update for those of you:

Got a really good friend who works for an IL State Rep, here's what he had to say:

The Bill passed the Senate and is now in the House of Reps. The current Bill is on hold until mid to late April where it will be debated on the House Floor. He said the Bill is not likely to make it pass the House, however if it did the IL NRA branch would be all over it taking it directly to the Supreme Court where it would most likely be struck down.

Personally I don't want to take that chance to let it get that far.

Also, there are something like 12-18 Bills in IL reguarding hunting and firearms restrictions.

I can't go into detail about them all because I really don't know that much about them, but as far as I understand it, half are FOR more restrictions, and half are AGAINST the restrictions.

One of the Bills AGAINST the restrictions aims to prevent these types of Bills from ever being discussed in IL again.

IL is already the most strict state in the U.S. reguarding gun laws, so lets not try and make it worse.

As we in IL say when you come visit, "Welcome to the State of Chicago!"

In the wake of the Virginia Tech shooting, this bill is becoming very scary. Here's what my State Rep has to say on the subject of gun control:

Quote:
Gun Control

I have long admired those who are skillful hunters and believe strongly in their rights. I only wish they would get a few more of the deer that cause accident and injury on our roads here in eastern Illinois! Further, I believe that the right to own a gun or other firearm is among one of the most basic and important rights guaranteed by the Founding Fathers. The second amendment to the Constitution of the United States absolutely guarantees that freedom and I know of no amendment to the Constitution that has ever changed this. The Amendment is clear: “...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” This is simply and clearly stated and there are not exceptions noted. Based on the belief that we are a government of laws and not of men, our legislators have throughout the years, passed various laws and rules regarding this right. We have plenty of laws in this Country regarding regulating the use of guns and other weapons. It is my opinion that we need to enforce our existing laws. We do not need an additional law or two or three concerning guns and gun ownership! Each time we have attempted to regulate the use of firearms, law abiding citizens followed the rules, and criminals were the winners.

Since I am involved in education, I have studied the instances of school violence which have plagued our country for the past few years. I served on the Governor’s Safe School Task Force. The proliferation of violence in society and on school campuses cannot be blamed on gun ownership or lax gun laws. At Columbine, perhaps the most well known school violence incident, over a dozen gun laws were violated. Is it rational to think that additional laws restricting the use of guns would have helped to avoid that tragedy? No. The fact is we have all of the laws we need and likely more than we need. I absolutely support the right of a person to bear arms as the Founding Fathers intended


How about yours? Let them KNOW how you feel about this, and don't underestimate any bill like this.

When I lived in Quincy, we called Chicago "The Socialist Republic of Illinios". Daley is POed because they struck down his precious gun ban and this is how he is punishing the lawfull gun owners of Illinois. Best of luck in defeating this violation of your 2nd amendment right Remember also,Obama holds Daley's views on gun ownership
