Quote:Both Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday night praised an Illinois Senate committee's approval of a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

In a party-line vote, the committee approved measures that would ban the possession, delivery, sale and transfer of semiautomatic handguns and rifles, but would allow current owners to keep them. High-capacity ammunition magazines would be restricted.

So, this is saying that a resident would not be able to go to a local shop, and purchase a semi auto??? At all?
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin

Sounds like it.

Revolvers, pump action, lever action, and bolt action will be all that there will be until they decide to ban those too.

The IL AWB includes pump action rifles and shotguns.

ETA: Apparently not all pump actions, just the following:
(B) a semi-automatic rifle or pump-action rifle
3 that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and
4 has any of the following:
5 (i) a folding or telescoping stock;
6 (ii) a pistol grip or thumbhole stock;
7 (iii) a shroud that is attached to, or
8 partially or completely encircles the barrel, and
9 that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with
10 the non-trigger hand without being burned;

Quote:Illinois Senate Democrats advanced legislation late Wednesday to restrict semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, pressing forward with new gun control measures in the waning days of the session over the objections of firearms groups.

Amid the developments, the Illinois State Rifle Association issued an “urgent alert” to its members warning them that Democratic legislators were trying to push through last-minute anti-gun legislation.

“There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering,” the group stated in its alert.

“You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the state police and avoid prosecution.”

A Senate committee approved two bills, one dealing with the weapons and the other with magazines. Democratic supporters could face a tough sell in the full Senate.

One measure would ban the possession, delivery, sale and transfer of semiautomatic handguns and rifles.

People who currently own such weapons could keep them but would have to register them.

The bill would allow semiautomatic weapons to be used at shooting ranges, but those facilities would be regulated.

National Rifle Association lobbyist Todd Vandermyde told lawmakers the bill would restrict about 75 percent of handguns and 50 percent of long guns in circulation today.

He also said it would treat law-abiding gun owners like criminals, and is in conflict with Second Amendment rights upheld by the courts.

"I've never seen a piece of legislation that tramples on so many court decisions," Vandermyde said.

The other bill, introduced by Democratic state Sen. Dan Kotowski, would limit ammunition magazines to 10 or fewer rounds.

Prophecy:

These traitors are hellbent on turning law abiding gunowners (the cream of American citizens) into criminals or subjects with the stroke of a pen.

Hellbent !!!

They intend to do it before 2016.

They are traitorous Anti-American psychopaths. Indeed 2008 was a Revolution or, more aptly, a bloodless coup de etat.

I see a Tiananmen Square, or a Syrian type massacre, in our near future as we battle to stave off this usurption of power.

They want Omnipotent power and are willing to kill us to do it. Ask Bill Ayres. FEMA camps? Billions of rounds of ammunition?

Call me tin foily. Ohh...was called that 65 days ago regarding OMao's gun intent....

OMao has not disappointed yet. Every prophecy has been dead on, from Glenn Beck to Alex Jones.

When it starts, this website and ALL like it will be shut down.

Our only hope is our military, and our worst enemy could be our Military.

Brace yourselves.

BTW, I hope I'm wrong but I think not.
