Second attack on modern firearms in IL going on.Submitted by vman2003 on Fri, 01/04/2013 - 14:06
IL is again trying to ban modern firearms (and, no, not just "assault-weapons", but pretty much most of the modern firearms including 1911s and so forth) :
If you live in IL send an email or call your local state representative (this time they will try to push it thru the house, not senate like they did yesterday. Possibly then they'll try to push it trhu senate on Monday for a slam dunk).
Even if you're not from IL this concerns you greatly. The strategy of Chicago mayors has been that "their gun control doesn't work because the surrounding towns and counties have easily available guns". So they've been pushing for state-wide bans to "fix that problem". Coincidentally, a few months ago they have started bringing in Indiana into the "why it doesn't work". What do you think will happen if a state wide firearms ban is accomplished and the gun murders still continue in Chicago (as they will). The next to blame will be "other states and their easily available guns". And keep in mind that those who are pushing these things are national-level politicians (Rahm, etc).
