Illinois Bill to Ban All Modern Firearms
#1
Quote:“The ISRA has learned from a credible source that Illinois Senate President John Cullerton [above] will introduce a so called ‘assault weapons’ ban on Wednesday when the legislature returns for its ‘lame duck’ session. Cullerton hopes to ramrod the bill through and get it to Governor Quinn for signature by Friday.

If he is successful at doing so, nearly every gun you currently own will be banned and will be subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police . . .

“Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns.

Pump action shotguns would be banned as well.

This would be a very comprehensive ban that would include not only so-called ‘assault weapons’ but also such classics as M1 Garands and 1911-based pistols.

There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering. You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

One step forward, ten steps back. Angry

Hopefully in light of the recent 2A ruling, this bill won't make it very far.
Error 396: Signature cannot be found.

I hope they pass this and its fast tracked to the scotus. I think we'll be surprised at how even the liberal justices rule.

For one, it's unconstitutional on more than one level. Two, even if it passes, it will be blocked by a judge until it gets to the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court somehow rules this crap constitutional, it could very well kickstart uprisings that would make the LA riots look like a schoolyard scuffle.

Too much and too soon, not to mention the conflicts with the Constitution (2nd, 4th, 14th/section 1, &c).

Very highly doubt this will get traction, best guess it's political posturing. We'd calling it firing for effect.

Politicians need to appease fellow party members as well as their constituents. Accumulated party service goes a long way for consideration for higher office appointments later on.

Personally, I see this as a desperate move by desperate people.

If that bill passes and the people of Ill. dont realize that is the go sign for Is it time yet? Then we are all screwed. If something like this passes we have truly become subjugated. I am not advocating violence but when does it stop? Confiscation is NOT ACCEPTABLE!

seconded....I think the Obamacare ruling has shown us that the USSC cannot be counted on for much.

To be honest I think the majority of people will roll over when threatened with this at either the state level or national level. How many guys with families that are dependent on them will really take on a state or federal LEO ? Sure, there will be isolated instances of those who have nothing to lose (no families, etc) doing something, but the media and authorities will do their best to paint them as nut jobs as opposed to freedom fighters.

I agree that most will roll over especially those with families but how many men had families during the American Revolution? And you 100% right those that do stand up will be painted has crazies. This is the situation we have been put in. I can only try to imagine what I would do. I have a family but I also dont want want my girls growing up in a socialist police state.
