Illinois –  -( The gun-grabbers are going all out with HB6008 in hopes of dealing a fatal blow to hunting and target shooting here in Illinois.

We all know that the next step would be a full out attack on defensive firearm ownership and the shuttering of gun shops.

Under HB6008, it would be illegal for anyone to discharge a firearm for hunting purposes within 1,000 yards of any building without the permission of the building owner or tenant. Yes, that’s right – 1,000 yards! What that means is that if you want to bag a rabbit for dinner, you have to get the permission of every person living or working within one square mile of where you’re standing. What are the odds of success with that endeavor?

Meanwhile, your dinner has hippity-hopped his way down the road.

Even crazier is the provision in HB6008 that would make it illegal for you to allow a dog to hunt [ not you, the dog ] within 1,000 yards of any building without the permission of the building owner or tenant. So, you’re out walking your dog one evening and Scooby-Doo happens to flush out a couple of sparrows. Ruh-row…no permission from the neighbors so it’s off to the big house for the two of you.

The gun controllers are especially sneaky when it comes to the third provision of HB6008 – a provision that exempts “licensed” ranges from the 1,000 yard rule. If you feel good about that exemption, you shouldn’t because there are no licensed ranges in Illinois. No license – no neighbor permission – no range. It’s as simple as that.

1. Call the bill’s main sponsor, Rep. Carol Sente [a Democrat] at (217) 782-0499, and POLITELY inform her that you are a lawful Illinois firearm owner and that you won’t be fooled by what’s contained in HB6008.

Tell her that you expect her to withdraw the bill or you will do everything in your power to see that HB6008 is defeated and that you will work tirelessly to prevent her from being re-elected.

2. Call your own State Representative and tell him or her that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you deeply oppose HB6008. Tell him or her that you expect them to vote against the bill.

If the Democrats win it’s goodbye USA.


A pile of dung can be thrown away, a democrat keeps coming back like the clap.


What’s the difference between a democrat and a pile of sh*t ? ……..nothing !


Ask the question Hillary cannot. What’s the difference between Socialism and being a Democrat?
The answer is obvious but not quite ready for prime time, I Hope.

I know the elected officials of this state mainly Democrats don’t care about budget but the bills they propose would stop the state from millions of dollars in fees and tax money if the those bills would pass. Hunting licence fees, foid card fees, excise taxes from the sale of guns ammunition, and other sporting goods amounts to a lot of money the state would not receive. Not to mention the loss of jobs which means state income tax revenue lost and more people moving out of the state.


‘THEY” pass laws without understanding the consequences! “THEY” love the feel good stuff!


All I have to say is Blessings to us all


When contemplating a vote for a Democrat just ask yourself what can the Democrat Party do to annoy you even more?


I agree it is always elected Democrats that sponsor these f’d up bills.

John Smith

The best thing you can do is not to vote Democrat in the first place. Once they’re elected it’s all about what can they do to CONTROL every aspect of your life!
