Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Launches New Attack On Your Gun Rights

Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday, February 9th, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called for the Illinois General Assembly to pass a $65 per handgun fee to be levied against every law-abiding gun owner in Illinois – INCLUDING YOU.

Of course, gang bangers, murderers, robbers and rapists are exempt from the fee.

This fee would be charged every 5 years on every handgun you own. Additionally, you would have to register with the government in the same manner as sex-offenders.

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU
If Rahm Emanuel’s gun tax passes, you will be required to pack up your handguns and take them to the local police station for examination and registration. If you have 10 handguns to bring in, you’ll walk out paying $650 in taxes. If you own 100 handguns, the government will lighten your wallet to the tune of $6,500. And, you’ll have to repeat this process every 5 years – unless Emanuel and his buddies in the legislature bump this up to an ANNUAL FEE.

WHAT IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THE TAX?
If you cannot pay the $65 tax on EACH of your handguns, you will have to surrender your guns to the local police for destruction.

WHAT IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO PAY THE TAX?
If you decide not to pay the tax, the police will come to your house and take your guns away. They will also arrest you and charge you with a CLASS 2 FELONY.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP STOP THIS HANDGUN TAX IN ITS TRACKS?

1. Using the link below, contact your State Senator and State Representative and politely tell them that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm owner who does not want their rights taxed. Tell your Senator and Representative that you expect them to vote AGAINST Rahm Emanuel’s gun tax should it come to the floor of the legislature.

2. Please pass this alert on to all your gun-owning friends and family, tell them to follow the directions contained in the alert.

3. Please post this alert to any and all Internet Blogs or Bulletin Boards to which you belong.

4. Go to the City of Chicago web page and fill out this form. Tell Emanuel that you will NOT LET HIM TAX YOUR GUNS.

5. Please use the donation link below to send a generous donation to the ISRA, today. We badly need the money to continue to fight against Emanuel and his gun-grabbing pals. Think about it: would you rather send your money as taxes to Emanuel, or donate to the ISRA?!

As public officials, who have taken the oath to defend the Constitution of the United States ,,yet oppose the second ammendment by taxing and forcing to pay for a God given and Constitutional given right they should not be Public officials and should be impeached and arrested for treason on our Constitution,! What part of ,, "shall not be infringed upon" do these liars not understand

Being from Danville Illinois, I'm rather sick and tired of politicians from the Chicago area trying to tell me how to live. If Emanuel is worried about guns being used in crime in his city, he needs to address the CRIMES themselves, and how and why they occur. The gun is but a mere tool. Is he foolishly believing that if all guns disappeared then all crime would cease? What an idiot. Mr. Emanuel, mind your own damn business. Keep your communist views and opinions in your own city. Youre not in charge of the State, so stop trying to… Read more »

As has been stade many times, by many politicians and jurists, most recently by Justice Ginsberg. The constitution is an obsolete impediment to implimenting their progersive agenda.

"What Can You Do…."

I agree with the advice about "What Can You Do…" except the part about being polite. We've had enough of polite. I would advise being quite forcefully businesslike, and right to the point. These traitors to their Oaths have show us so much contempt, for so long a period, that I have been long convinced they couldn't give a rat's rump about our Rights.

Time to take this country back into the hands of it's rightful owners, WE, THE PEOPLE.
