Illinois – -( Rabidly anti-gun Congressman Mike Quigley (IL-5) will be holding a public hearing on a bill he has co-sponsored that would put gun shows under the supervision of the federal government.

The bill, HR 2324, would subject gun show hosts to a slew of pointless, time consuming regulations in addition to heaping all sorts of red tape and record keeping requirements on gun show hosts and participants.

The ultimate goal of Quigley’s bill is to make hosting a gun show too much of a hassle to endure. As a result, this bill would quickly make gun shows disappear all together.

It should be noted that Congressman Mark Kirk (IL-10) is another co-sponsor of this slap to the face of the 2nd Amendment.

Things You Need To Do To Save Gun Shows:

  1. Attend the hearing on HR 2324. The hearing will take place on Thursday, August 19, at 9:00 AM at the Dirksen Federal Building, 219 South Dearborn, Room 2510, Chicago. Be advised that the Dirksen building is a secure facility. You will have to go through a metal detector to get in. So, make sure your pockets are empty of anything that could get you in trouble. Do not do or say anything that could get you in trouble. When you get to the hearing, politely express your disapproval of HR 2324.
  2. Contact your federal representative and politely tell him or her that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you oppose HR 2324 and that you would like them to vote NO on the bill should it reach the House floor. (Find your Representative: IL State Board of Elections)
  3. Circulate this alert to all your gun owning friends and family. Tell them to show up at the hearing as well.
  4. Please post links this article to all internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you belong.
  5. Donate generously to the ISRA.
  6. Remember, gun control is a disease – and you’re the cure!

ISRA needs your continued support. McDonald v Chicago was not the end of the fight but the beginning. The ISRA continues the fight for your firearm rights here in Illinois, with additional federal litigation against the City of Chicago.

The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. Since 1903, the ISRA has represented the interests of over 1.5 million law-abiding Illinois firearm owners Visit:

    1. Why is a 2010 article getting front page type exposure in 2017? No new data seems to have been added. And people wonder why I feel a good bit of the Ammoland blog is just leftovers and also-rans. Oh well …

    2. Addendum to my first comment to the author of this rubbish.

      Please read my first comment, and then attempt to understand what I said. It is clear cut and an absolute fact.

      By trying to justify your article only indicates that you are not capable of not only researching facts for yourself, but also not able to understand the facts when they are presented to you.

    3. Well, yeah, that MAY be true. That’s a bit of a giggle tho.


      You planted the goal posts in YOUR article. Your article has been proven to be….well, what can I say…….journalistic incompetence comes to mind…..If you like, I can probably come up with more.

      Since you choose to be anonymous in your publications, and comments, then your credibility is automatically in question. This begs the question: ‘Why do you choose to publish hiding your identity.

      Oops, sorry, it appears that question has already been answered.

    4. H.R. 2324:

      ‘Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2009'

      Introduced May 7, 2009. Well over a year ago.

      Referred to Committee June 12, 2009. Well over a year ago.

      No movement since and not on the committee calendar.

      Now, even if it did start moving, there isn’t enough time left in the second session of the 111th Congress to just pass the house, let alone the Senate. Also, the bill will formally die at the end of this session. The 112th Congress could take it up, but very highly unlikely.

      This hearing is just political posturing, and it would have been nice if the author of the article would have researched his subject a bit instead of the usual scare mongering. We have enough on our plates without ‘Tilting at Windmills’.

    5. I already bought my tee shirt. It says come and take it with a picture of an AR-15. you can order @ culpepper and gadsden Let them try to arrest 120 million Americans. Go ahead, make our day………

    6. They can do whatever they want. Like the slogans on tee shirts the illegals are wearing in Arizona, "WE WILL NOT COMPLY".

      If I have got to build one ,I will.
