The Emanuel-Obama Machine Plans Another Sneak Attack on Your Gun Rights

Rahm Emanuel
Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama

Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- As many of you know, the Illinois House Executive Committee sent two extremely anti-gun bills to the floor yesterday:

HB5831 – This bill would tack a $65.00 tax on every handgun you own and require you to register like a sex offender.

HB5167 – This bill would tack a 2% “Sin Tax” on all ammunition sales in the state with the proceeds from the tax going to a fund to help pay for a healthcare program for gang bangers and drug lords.

EACH OF THESE TWO BILLS HAVE ONE PURPOSE AND ONE PURPOSE ONLY – TO PUNISH LAW-ABIDING FIREARM OWNERS

The Emmanuel/Obama gun haters aren’t being the least bit bashful about their intent, they have made it clear that they will “screw over” gun owners by any means possible.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP PRESERVE AND PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS

  1. Demonstrate your support for your gun rights – attend IGOLD 2012 – Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day on March 7th. See http://igold.isra.org for further details.
  2. Contact your State Representative and politely inform him/her that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you do not support taxing ammunition and you do not support registering firearm owners like sex offenders. Tell him/her that you expect to see them vote AGAINST HB5831 and AGAINST HB5167 when these antigun bills come to the floor. If you do not know who your State Representative is, click this link to go to the Illinois Board of Elections: http://www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx.
  3. Contact the sponsor of the ammo tax, State Representative Kelly Cassidy, [email protected], (217) 782-8088, (773) 784-2002, and tell her that you do not appreciate the idea of being taxed to pay gang bangers’ medical bills.
  4. Contact the chief co-sponsor of the ammo tax, State Representative Kimberly du Buclet, [email protected], (217) 782-2023, (773) 285-1110, and tell her that you do not appreciate the idea of being taxed to pay gang bangers’ medical bills.
  5. Contact the sponsor of the Emanuel/Obama gun tax, State Representative William Davis, (217) 782-8197, (708) 799-7300, and tell him that you do not appreciate the idea of being registered like a sex offender and having to pay a tax for exercising your constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
  6. Pass this alert on to all your gun-owning friends and family, tell them to follow the instructions above.
  7. Post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards or blogs to which you belong.

REMEMBER – GUN CONTROL IS A DISEASE AND YOU’RE THE CURE!

In a state where it is the norm for governors to commit crimes and go to prison, I would have a real problem with this registration law. The lawmakers in this state need to understand that those of us who do not live in the city are getting frickin sick of paying their bills. Then I suppose all criminals will be the first ones to step forward and register their handguns!LOL

Why would anyone in their right mind want to be on some kind of registered list just because they are a law-abiding gun owner? That is the most sinister fascist thing I ever heard. Is it my meth head neighbors business that I own guns or any valuables in my home so that he can break in and steal them when I'm not home? Hell no! Is it any of the government's business that I own guns so they can confiscate them whenever they find any little excuse? Absolutely not!

Doesnt matter anyway. The Supreme Court has already ruled that any registration requirement would be UnConstitutional

"I agree, people should have their guns, but responsibly, and registering as an owner is part of being responsible. To compare that to “like a sex offender”, well, that speaks loudly itself. That was just stupid!" Yes the above author of that comment is stupid. How is registering as a gun owner "part of being responsible"? When the government finally decides that the type of gun you own is illegal, then they will know exactly where to find you and your "illegal" gun. The government has no more right to know whether I own a gun, than they have the… Read more »

This article is really dumb. They are not taxing anything to pay for "drug lords" (there aren't any freakin' "drug lords" in Chicago) and gang bangers medical. They are doing it to deter people from buying them if they cannot make it illegal altogether. And if you are legitimate, why are you worried about being registered as a firearms owner? There's only one reason people would want to hide from that – and if you're so "I WANT MY RIGHT TO HAVE MY GUN", why would you want to hide? Stop playing man, this article is goofy as hell!
