This is fucking serious folks. This is moving fast. For those people saying this can’t be for real, it’s for fucking real. This is on the verge of passing the Senate. Illinois is on the verge of being the worst state in the nation to be a gun owner. We must bury them under an avalanche of phone calls, letters, and if necessary, make them swim in a sea of yellow. We can turn out those numbers. If this happens there, this play will be repeated elsewhere. None of us are safe.
UPDATE: More here:
MESSAGE FROM COMMITTEE DEMOCRATS:Â â€œEliminating law-abiding gun owners is a good â€˜first stepâ€™ towards a â€˜civil society.â€™â€
Included at the link is good and proper action to take, and yes, sometimes it helps tremendously to THANK lawmakers who stay with us. Positive reinforcement.
This is very serious. We are at DEFCON 1 in Illinois, folks.
UPDATE: From a comment in another post:
There will be a floor vote on these issues as early as tomorrow. Â HB1263 (assault weapons ban) and HB 815 (magazine ban) have been passed out of committee and will be brought to the floor for a general vote by tomorrow morning. Â As written, the ban will outlaw not only most rifles and shotguns used for hunting and sporting purposes, but also most handguns used for home and self defense. Â There is very little time to contact your legislators and express your outrage at this blatant gun grab.
This is truth. Act now.
