    I didnt know blagyovich was out of prison and back to being governor. Musta missed an election somewhere. We wisconsin folks keep a close eye on our inbred neighbors... :D

    Marlin they are voting on SB681 11-27-2012 again it's a long running bill they are still trying. Now they named it a ammo law and embedded this deep into the law.

    Its a lie your spouting mon ami. That story bout that subject is from '06 mon ami. Issues long dead. There's another thread on the subject already I do believe.

    That one is much more recent...
    Of the ammo ban introduced this past summer, which I believe was still and also "shot" down. (pun intended).

    Hey, all of us 2A supporters are worried. But, this in particular is old and toothless at this point.

    I hope so because I still own multiple properties in this state. And it's insanity that focus is against good people and Illinois is coated with bad people.

    Winds, maybe if you can swing it, order a lower online and have it shipped. You can get for under $100 some places.

    I know I should. I can't "swing" much right now.

    I was promised a lower AR for Christmas last year but it never materialized. But that is a whole 'nother story. :mad: :(

    I've been meaning to order a few and just toss them into the safe for insurance.

    I'm a member of a local Facebook page for gun traders, and one guy (a dealer or a Smith, not sure which) is selling lowers fairly cheap. I would have to check on brand and so forth, but I would be happy to help facilitate a transaction if anyone is interested...

    Well I don't have a link but the OP isn't lying. It was originally a bill that allowed mail order of ammunition that Quinn "vetoed"and turned it into an assault weapon and high cap ban. The session opens today, and it will be voted on.

    I think around 50 bucks. I wasn't really paying attention because I'm not in the market.

    Completely stripped. Nothing on them but the finish.

    Just tracked him down. He said all but 4 were spoken for (out of 100), and those 4 were snapped up as soon as he told his buyers they'd been delivered. Sorry guys.
