Illinois State Rifle AssociationIllinois-(Ammoland.com)- SB 1657 (Gun Dealer Licensing) is the Senate version of the legislation that would force your favorite gun store to close under a mountain of new regulations. This bill will affect your ability to buy firearms or ammunition in Illinois. Never mind the weight of all the federal regulations that gun dealers and gun owners must deal with, your retailer and you will have more Illinois regulations and fees now too.

The bill as amended passed out of the Senate on a 30-21 vote and today passed out of the committee hearing in the Illinois House of Representatives. This bill is now expected to see action on the floor of the House.

SB556 Munoz – SFA1 – Semi-auto and magazine ban

This is a ban of your favorite semi-auto firearms and magazines. This is done by amending an empty piece of legislation (“shell” bill) that has already progressed in the Senate. If you look up the bill, you have to read the amendment (SFA1) to see its impact.

The status page of the bill will not show the new intent of the bill.

    1. Unbelievable how we chip away at our rights as Americans. We built this country on our 2nd amendment and now you guys want to take it away, and put dealers out of business in our already not so great economy, they also have families to feed. What does it matter if a citizen wants to purchase 1 fire arm a year or 1000? Stop disarming our Americans in Illinois. This will not lower crime rates, or help the economy not to mention putting that states law abiding citizens at risk like sitting ducks because of your dumb laws. You guys are idiots if you let’s this go through. Good luck Illinois I am praying this doesn’t happen.

    2. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT SB 1657, IN EFFECTIVELY CLOSING MOST OF ILLINOIS” GUN RETAILERS, WILL CAUSE THE OWNERS AND THE EMPLOYEES OF THESE BUSINESSES TO LOSE THEIR JOBS AND APPLY FOR UNEMPLOYMENT.
      HOW CAN THIS BE “A GOOD [email protected]??

    3. I left Illinois and moved to South Carolina. Happiness for me was Illinois in my rearview mirror. The situation in that state will never change as long as Madigan and the Chicago scum remain in charge.

    4. Illinois, quickly becoming the murder capital of the U.S. thanks to it’s disarmed citizens being set up as targets by those elected by those same citizens. Roy D is 100% correct, until the gun owners (LEGAL ONES) make enough noise to wake up the non voters or those who are stupid enough to believe the ELECTED OFFICIALS (read DEMS) that say a disarmed society is a safe society and elect the Second Amendment backing politicians (read REPUBLICANS) the state will be a prime shooting gallery for the criminals who ALWAYS have guns and obey not ONE of the stupid shit laws being shoved through the pocket lining process. Look at ANY state controlled by the Dems, murder rates rise with every year they are in charge. The Dem politicians have protection, as long as they do they will push for YOU to not be able to protect yourself or your family… Ironic, even OBAMA and Michael won’t move back to Illinois !

      1. And exactly what does that mean? One day, soon I hope, actions are going to have them too.
