    Seriously, I doubt it, but I will be spending some time tomorrow,
    making phone calls and sending emails.

    Any bill has a chance of passing. That is what's scary. Nothing I'd panic about if I were a citizen of Illinois but take note of it as every proposed bill is a window into the thinking of the person who introduced it.

    With Illinois about to be forced to pass CCW, this seems like a reaction to defang it by making sure citizens are severely restricted.

    As a semi-regular traveller to Chicago I wish they'd knock this nonsense off. None of it makes me feel safer about visiting.

    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.

    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.

    Ha!

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

    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!
