This is a heads-up for Illinois Residents
 
It was posted on infowars; however, we know how Chicago Mayor Daley is on control of guns. We also are hearing that Mayor Daley wants National Guard to assist in the prevention of the gun violence.

Here is the Illinois legislative website: Illinois General Assembly Home Page

Here is the link: Illinois to Declare “Disarm Lawful Citizens Week”

The Speaker of the Illinois House wants a “Gun Control Week” declared. In addition, “Speaker of the House Mike Madigan may require that the House of Representatives remain in session until it passes Daley’s 2010 gun control package,” according to an email alert sent out by the Illinois State Rifle Association.

Daley proposes the following raft of unconstitutional legislation:

HB180 – a scheme to run gun shops out of business by forcing shops to get licensed and comply with a slew of burdensome regulations.

Creates the Handgun Dealer Licensing Act. Provides for the regulation of handgun dealers through licensure by the Department of State Police. Provides that no person may sell or otherwise transfer, expose for sale or transfer, or have in his or her possession with the intent to sell or transfer, any concealable firearm without being licensed under the Act. Provides, however, that the prohibition does not apply to a person who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of concealable firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or as a hobby, or who sells all or part of his or her personal collection of firearms. Sets forth provisions concerning application, fees, duration of licensure, license retention requirements, submissions to the Department, penalties, revocation, and suspension. Grants rulemaking authority to the Department and provides that for the purpose of determining compliance with the Act, the Act may be enforced by any municipality in which a licensee is located or, if a licensee is not located in a municipality, by the county in which a licensee is located.

HB5480 – would ban private firearm sales and force citizens to process private sales through licensed gun shops. (Yes, those are the same gun shops that will be run out of business by HB180 above)

Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that a person who is not a federally licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer and who desires to sell or transfer a firearm of a size that may be concealed upon the person to another person, who is not a federally licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer, shall do so only at the place of business of a federally licensed firearm dealer. Provides that the federally licensed firearm dealer shall conduct a background check on the prospective recipient of the firearm and follow all other applicable federal, State, and local laws as if he or she were the seller of the firearm. Provides that the purchaser or transferee may be required by the federally licensed firearm dealer to pay a fee not to exceed $10 per firearm, plus other authorized fees. Makes exceptions for (i) the transfer of a firearm between spouses, a parent and child, or other family members, (ii) transfers by persons acting pursuant to operation of law or a court order, or (iii) transfers on the grounds of a gun show.

HB5495 – would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month. Of course, criminals are exempt from this gun-rationing scheme.

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Changes references in the statute on unlawful sale of firearms from "sell" or "give" to "transfer". Prohibits multiple sales of handguns within a 30-day period. Creates the offense of unlawful acquisition of handguns. Provides exemptions and affirmative defenses. Penalty is a Class A misdemeanor for a first offense and a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent offense.

HB5751 – would give you 90 days to surrender all your semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns to the state police or face felony prison time.

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act, it is unlawful for any person within this State to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell, purchase, or possess or cause to be manufactured, delivered, sold, purchased, or possessed a semi-automatic assault weapon, an assault weapon attachment, any .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge. Provides that beginning 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act, it is unlawful for any person within this State to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell, purchase, or possess or cause to be manufactured, delivered, sold, purchased, or possessed a large capacity ammunition feeding device. Provides that these provisions do not apply to a person who possessed a prohibited weapon, device, or attachment before the effective date of this amendatory Act if the person has provided proof of ownership to the Department of State Police within 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act. Provides that on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act, such person may transfer such device only to an heir, an individual residing in another state maintaining that device in another state, or a dealer licensed as a federal firearms dealer. Specifies penalties for violations. Provides exemptions. Provides that the provisions of the Act are severable. Effective immediately.

HB5849 – would make it a felony to use a case other than one designed for a firearm to transport it and give the police greater power to confiscate your guns for “improper transportation” even if you have committed no other crime.

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that the exemption from violations of the unlawful use of a weapon statutes for carrying firearms applies to portable containers designed for the safe transportation of firearms (rather than any container). Effective immediately.

HB6123 – would make it a felony to sell a firearm to someone who looks like a gang member (ie: Black, Hispanic, shaved heads (all races), tattoos (all races), motorcyclists (all races), etc.)

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that it is a Class 1 felony to knowingly sell or give a firearm to a person who is a street gang member. Effective immediately.

The Chicago socialist demoncrats want to mobilize the National Guard to reduce the numbers of gang-bangers killing gang-bangers in their shxt-hole of a city.

The same socialist demoncrats do not want to deploy the National Guard to the US-Mexican border to prevent Mexican illegals and drug smugglers from killing American ranchers.

The hypocrisy here would be absolutely unbelievable if it weren't for the fact that these socialist demoncrats have always been blantant hypocrites.

These same socialists are now up in arms about Arizona's legal residency status laws.

thats not what he's saying here but doesn't hurt to keep an ear peeled for this type of thing
daleys reaction

Daley and Springfield dont always jive....not to mention Gov. Quinn's remark about the homicide rate is somewhat irrelevant...110 is not actually high considering a third of the year has passed. Chitown is usually in the 400's with homicides/year with our record being at something like 627 (we were nation high that year).

Yeah, so how's that gun control thing workin for ya Chicago? Hey, I have an idea, lets fix failing gun control with...MORE gun control!

It's a shame the gang-bangers can't eliminate each other without taking innocents with them.

I should have re-phrased the statement on the National Guard issue. Sorry! Typing and reviewing the Ill. legislature information at the same, lost track!

Hearing the news, it is bad - the cops are out-gunned and out-manned! If the populace does not have the means to defend themselves from the runs and regulations - change the rules - allowed the citizens to re-arm heavily, bring in more uniform officers, get the ones from behind the desks back onto to the streets and/or National Guard as a last resort!

yeah i hear you 100%, its not good at all...but it hasn't been good for a long time, and probably about as long as the gun ban has been in effect.

when i catch up on old episodes/seasons of gangland as i have been recently -yikes!, chicago from this program might as well be Lagos, Nigeria as far as the danger index goes....

one thing though...chicago police may be out gunned and outnumbered but not as easily as they're out run. I'm sure the nat. guard has got em on that end of the game....do weekend warriors train on segways?

I'm sure you all know the unions are strong here.....( except maybe the gun owners union:mad:, wheres that local???) and when Weis rolled in as the new sheriff in town, well the fact that the cpd's union opposed Weis's desire to have mandatory physical fitness as a part of being a cop pretty much says it all about the law enforcement system in this city.

my uncle did a full stint with CPD mostly in bomb n arson dept. and retired in the early 90', so i know the job aint easy, but his list of complaints/desires with the system wasn't exactly short.

i actually wouldnt mind seeing the national guard, in fact i'd be curious as to how they would be deployed and what effect it would have on the gang violence and shootings..as long as they dont double park those humvees and block my alley:p

aight i'm done.
