Stop HB1294, HB1599, HB1855
Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- Chicago legislators once again are trying to rule over gun owners statewide.
The outrageous “Assault Weapons Ban” is back via State Rep. Eddie Acevedo who represents District 2 in Chicago. HB1294 is a repeat effort to ban just about every sporting and self-defense gun owned in Illinois, along with magazines holding more than 10 rounds, unless of course you still have the receipt from when you bought the gun or magazine some 15-20-30 years ago.
This is another attempt by Chicago and Cook County’ to prevent law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.
Along with HB1294, Acevedo also introduced HB1599, increasing the penalty of being in possession of high capacity ammunition when commenting an offense – what’s that you say? What’s high capacity ammunition? Apparently it is anything 50 caliber or larger but no distinction is made between pistol, rifle, or shotgun ammo.
All shotgun ammo over .410 would be banned.
Acevedo’s trio of atrocities against gun owners includes HB1855 which would penalize the victims of gun theft by barring them from owning firearms permanently if they didn’t report a theft within 72 hours of knowing about it – but who is to determine when someone knew or should have know about a theft? There in lies the danger.
Call your State Representative TODAY! Tell him/her to vote NO on HB1294, HB1599, and HB1855.

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.
