Illinois --( They Failed in the Senate – Now Gov. Quinn & Chicago Mayor Emanuel Will Attempt to Push Firearm Ban Through the IL House of Reps.

Senate sponsors could not find the votes for HB815 and HB1263 before recessing for the weekend.

However, that has not stopped Gov. Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel from trying to pass a Chicago-style gun ban during the lame duck session.

The House will reconvene Sunday evening at 5 pm. and we expect a strong push to pass the gun ban and get it back to the Senate for a vote before the deadline on Wed., Jan. 9th  2013.

The bills will include banning most semi-auto handguns, rifles, and shotguns, plus restrictions on public shooting ranges that will close most, if not all, ranges in Illinois.

What Can You Do To Stop This Assault On Your Rights?

Keep the Phone Lines Hot!

Call your State Representative’s Springfield and district offices over the weekend and urge them to oppose these outrageous attempts to infringe on our Second Amendment rights. Be polite but firm.

We do not know which bill numbers they will use, but another alert will be sent as soon as we know and you will be asked to file a witness slip to voice your opposition in the committee hearing. Please sign up and monitor your email for alerts on Sunday.

To find out who your State Representative is call 217-782-2000 or go to the CapWiz website.

The IllinoisCarry forum was started in April 2004. The idea was that Illinois needed a central location to communicate ideas and information regarding 2nd Amendment issues in Illinois. There are many organizations in Illinois working to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. Working with these groups IllinoisCarry has become the central location for information and Action Alerts. IllinoisCarry will not endorse political candidates. We simply provide information so voters can make informed decisions. Our goal is to join the other 48 states that allow their citizens to carry concealed firearms. We encourage you to register on our forum and join the fight for your 2nd Amendment Rights in Illinois.

      Quinn and Emanuel are two Left Liberal Anti-Gun Zealots and they don’t care that the Illinois Drug Gangs are heavily armed with illegally bought and stolen guns of all kinds, most are illegal fully auto ones. Those two Marxists’ thinking traitors don’t bother to disarm the Drug Gangs, they just want to disarm all Law Abiding Illinois Citizens.
