Illinois – -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun control advocates have been fond of saying that, if they only pass one bill during the 2009 legislative session, they want it to be a ban on private firearm transfers.

Well, the gun-grabbers’ hopes of passing such a bill were dashed late yesterday when the heavily Democratic Illinois House shot down HB 48 by a 60-55 margin.

If passed, HB48 would have required that private handgun transfers would have to go through an FFL. Proponents of the legislation claimed that such a requirement would deter criminal gun runners from selling guns to gangs.

The thinking person knows that criminals, by definition, do not obey laws. The thinking person knows that bills like HB48 serve only to harass law abiding citizens by forcing them to jump through all sorts of hoops in order to exercise the constitutionally protected right to own firearms. Thankfully there are 60 thinking people in the Illinois House.

Here Is What You Need To Do:

Take a look at the roll call vote for HB48. www.ilga.gov/legislation/votehistory/96/house/09600HB0048_03252009_035000T.pdf

If your representative has a “N” next to his/her name, call them up and thank them for voting against this horrible bill.

If your representative has a “Y” next to his/her name, call them up and politely tell them that you are disappointed in their vote and that you will keep their vote in mind next election day.

To find your representative’s phone number, go to: www.ilga.gov/house and click on your representative’s name.

Remember – Gun Control Is A Disease – You Are The Cure!
