NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Last week, Senate Bill 3659, misleadingly named the “Illinois Public Safety Act,” was introduced by notorious Illinois anti-gun state Senator Dan Kotowski (D-28).

SB 3659 seeks to ban the possession, delivery, sale and purchase of many semi-automatic firearms and accessories, as well as .50 caliber rifles and cartridges unless the items have been previously owned and registered within an arbitrary period of time.  SB 3659 would also amend the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act to require background checks for private transfers of firearms, except those between family members, and would restrict magazine limits to those with a capacity of 15 rounds and smaller.

SB 3659 embodies the anti-gunner “wish list” in Illinois.  This legislation is a comprehensive anti-gun package which echoes the unconstitutional legislation passed in New York and Connecticut last year( and soon NJ).  The laws passed in those states are currently subject to lawsuits due to their significant infringement on Second Amendment rights.

With the 2014 legislative session winding down, this bill has not yet been assigned to a policy committee. However, your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated when more information is available on this legislation

      To the people of Illinois: I would strongly suggest that if this “law” is passed, that you treat it exactly as patriots in New York and Connecticut responded to the laws in those respective states: IGNORE THEM, and refuse to obey them. What are they going to do, ARREST YOU ALL?
