Default Gov Quinn Teams Up With Mayor Rahm Emanuel To Propose Bill To Tax And Ban Your Guns

This is just in from ammoland.

Governor Quinn Teams Up With Mayor Rahm Emanuel To Propose Bill To Tax And Ban Your Guns


CHATSWORTH, Ill --(Ammoland.com)- As many of you know, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn today utilized his amendatory veto authority to hijack a pro-gun bill and convert it into a ban on so called assault weapons. Quinn claims that his bill would “…make Illinois a safer place.”

Of course, lawful Illinois firearm owners know better. We know that Quinn’s true aim is to obliterate private firearm ownership in the state. Closer analysis of Quinn’s bill reveals a host of opportunities for Quinn and his buddy Emanuel to make life miserable for the state’s lawful firearm owners.

Here is just a partial list of what this bill would do, if passed:

1. Ban the manufacture, possession or sale of nearly every semiautomatic rifle, pistol and shotgun you own.

2. Specifically ban Glock pistols since they share a common design with the Glock 18, a select fire handgun.

3. Require you to register every semiautomatic firearm and every magazine you own that exceeds 10 round capacity.

The kicker is that, under Quinn’s proposal, the State Police can charge you unlimited fees to register your guns. Thus if Quinn’s bill passes, you could very well find yourself paying $100 or even $1,000 per firearm per year to comply with the law. Additionally, you could find yourself paying $50, $100 or even $500 per year for each “high capacity” magazine you own. Can’t pay? Well then you would have to surrender your guns to the State Police for destruction.

This is just a taste of what you could expect from Quinn’s gun ban. Twists and turns in the bill would certainly open up the doors to taxation, regulation, and outright bans on every civilian owned firearm in the state.

Oh, and one thing is for sure, you can forget about concealed carry if Quinn’s gun ban passes.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR GUN RIGHTS:

1. Call your State Senator ASAP and politely tell him or her that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm owner and that you expect him or her to vote against Quinn’s gun ban should it come up for a vote. If you do not know who your State Senator is, please follow this link:

Illinois Board of Elections District Official/Search:
http://www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx

2. Pass this alert on to all your friends and family who own firearms. Tell them to make calls to the senate as well.

3. Post this alert to any and all Internet blogs or bulletin boards to which you belong.

4. If you’re not already a member of the ISRA, then it’s time you signed on to protect your gun rights. To join the ISRA, follow this link: www.isra.org/join

5. Make a generous donation to the ISRA today so that we will be able to fight on against gun grabbers like Pat Quinn and Rahm Emanuel: www.isra.org/fight_4_your_rights.

The ISRA is the state’s leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

Looks like border states are going to get more residents and probably a few more gun manufacturers.

I would move to Indiana in a second if I could, but my house won't sell for anywhere near what I need, so I am stuck for the time being. I have no idea how these people get elected. (well actually I know full well how, but I'm not going to go into it). Nobody I know voted for Quinn, the counties, other than Cook, hate him and the city. It's time the people of Illinois stop letting Chitcago run the state.

I think that Chicago was under better management when the "Mafia" ran it. At least there was some honor in the leadership. But we all know that the "Mafia" does not exist.

Wait. What? Amendatory authority?! You're telling us one person - the governor of the state - can take a bill coming to his or her desk, rewrite (amend) it, sign it and it becomes law?

How's that any godd@mn different from having a monarch?

And I thought I have it bad in New York. If I were living in Illinois, I'd be perusing homes and jobs in Texas right about now. No way would I register anything while I was still in the state.

Governor Quinn Teams Up With Mayor Rahm Emanuel Douchebag central of course To Propose Bill To Tax And Ban Your Guns


CHATSWORTH, Ill --(Ammoland.com)- As many of you know, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn today utilized his amendatory veto authority to hijack a pro-gun bill and convert it into a ban on so called assault weapons. Quinn claims that his bill would “…make Illinois a safer place.”

Here is just a partial list of what this bill would do, if passed:

1. Ban the manufacture, possession or sale of nearly every semiautomatic rifle, pistol and shotgun you own.That sure isnt going to go well with all the big bun manufacturers in IL now is it , guess he wont have their vote .

2. Specifically ban Glock pistols since they share a common design with the Glock 18, a select fire handgun. Yes because there is what like 50 of these in existance ?

3. Require you to register every semiautomatic firearm and every magazine you own that exceeds 10 round capacity. Register what ? lost mine in the fire remember , and mags good luck with that since there is not any type of serial numbers on them, guess I only have one since they all look the same , thats going to be hard to control .

The kicker is that, under Quinn’s proposal, the State Police can charge you unlimited fees to register your guns. Thus if Quinn’s bill passes, you could very well find yourself paying $100 or even $1,000 per firearm per year to comply with the law. Additionally, you could find yourself paying $50, $100 or even $500 per year for each “high capacity” magazine you own. Can’t pay? Well then you would have to surrender your guns to the State Police for destruction. Tax, how the hell can they expect me to pay tax on something they already collected on once , and surrender my guns . LOL come get em

This is just a taste of what you could expect from Quinn’s gun ban. Twists and turns in the bill would certainly open up the doors to taxation, regulation, and outright bans on every civilian owned firearm in the state.

Oh, and one thing is for sure, you can forget about concealed carry if Quinn’s gun ban passes. Suck it Quinn!!!!!!!
