Tonight, two email notices came in about Quinn's latest idiotic assault. One was from the NRA and the other from IllinoisCarry.com and BOTH have my blood boiling!! Mad Evil or Very Mad

Chicago's ridiculous and criminal gun laws were bad enough. Now Quinn wants to make many of us "instant felons". Exclamation

Just like "Dumbo", we must do everything in our power to be sure Quinn does NOT return to the statehouse except as a TOURIST!

I felt the same way until I read the amendment. There appears to be a grandfather clause built in where you have to get a receipt from the police to keep your otherwise restricted items. Registering guns and mags is bad enough. But does anyone think that this is going anywhere? I don't think it will come close to passing. Quinn is day dreaming if he thinks this is going to become a law.

Yay we are grandfathered into our rights, but no such luck for those after a certain date. I don't think that any of this is good.

Please don't misunderstand me and think that since it's not effecting the weapons I have I don't care. I don't think it's right. Also it would limit what guns we'd be able to purchase in the future. I just don't think the bill, or amendment to the bill, is going to get any traction. It's political suicide for 95% of the politicians if they vote yea. More than 50% of the reps voted for concealed carry, and if the DemonRats can't even get 50% to vote against concealed carry I don't see them getting anywhere near the votes to restrict our rights like this. We have the momentum on our side. We are winning. Even after the mass shooting in Colorado, where I expected some loss in support of our rights, people stood up and still said "Just because one bad apple got through the system doesn't mean we should restrict the rights of the law abiding!" I have faith we will see carrying in Illinois. I just hope it's sooner than later.

I'll bury my gear in the yard or move it out of state before I submit. With any luck, I may be out of IL soon anyway.
