Default Two new bills on their way to grab our guns

I'm not sure of the cycle of how a bill becomes law in illinois. But two new bills are on their way of becoming law:

1: $65 dollar registration fee on every pistol sold in illinois, plus a $25 renewal fee every 5 years.

2: Putting a 2% tax on any ammunition sale.

You are in Ill&dead...your choices are to help your Gun-Freindly candidates get elected...
or move south and enjoy Florida's great weather & bikini-clad wenches...or studd-muffin-type guys, as you prefer...
and our Kick-Ass Gun laws...which is to say, we've got Great Castle Laws...and few idiotic anti-gun laws.
