Here is what I wrote to my State Senator Sue Rezin and State Rep. Pam Roth
this morning in response to Illinois' Gun Ban Legislation. You can use it as
you see fit. Short and to the point, adjust it as you see fit.

Quote:
Dear Representative Roth,

My name is Ronald E. Lemke, Jr. and I am a voter in your District. I urge you to strongly oppose both of these bills, HB815 and HB1263. I am a law abiding gun owner, a lifelong resident of Illinois, US Navy Veteran, a Desert Storm Veteran, a member of the NRA, a member of the ISRA and a habitual voter.

The Second Amendment of the US Constitution clearly states that every citizen of the United States has the Right to “Keep and Bear arms” and that this Right “Shall not be Infringed”. Both of the Bills are significant infringement of my inalienable right.

If you or a member of your staff wishes to discuss this with me further please contact me.

Respectfully,
Ronald E. Lemke, Jr.
<contact information>

Bill Brady posted on facebook that he would not be supporting it. He believes in the second amendment and that people should not be limited on possessing firearms and protecting their homes and family. I can't imagine this will go through with the landslide that the last of an got shot down by. But you never know I guess

I agree that it will not likely pass, but we have to make sure that our
elected officials know that we as law abiding gun owners disapprove of
these proposed laws. You know that the anti-gunners are calling all day
long pushing their point.

Also keep in mind this is a lame duck session so those that were voted out
dont care and will vote a direct that will most benefit themselves not
neccessarily their constituents.

Both Sue Rezin and Pam Roth oppose these bills.

Rezin (R), Roth (R) and Mautino (D) all oppose the gun ban bills.
Hutchinson's (D) and Dugan's (D) offices both stated that neither
politician has communicated a position on the bills HB815 & HB
1263. You can draw you own conclusions on those statements.

The bills were pulled and won't go up for a vote.

Makes me feel a little bit better about my travels north.

The downstate democrats would be lynched if they voted anti-gun and they
know it, the Chicago Dems have to depend on the Downstaters to pass
anything and they know it.

This is great news!!!

Thanks for the link!!!

Fear not as I'm sure they'll try to sneak it in again soon. I'll bet these politicians hate the internet and social media that quickly alerts citizens as to inpending legislation. Stay ever vigilant.

Unfortunately, it went from proposed, to pulled, to delayed. Looks like they will try to re-introduce it later.

Stay ever vigilant indeed!
