Politics... Already?

UPDATE2: Class 4 felony for a magazine? You'd get a lighter sentence for selling dope!
Seems that there are other amendments for AWB "hidden" in a few other bills! Disgusting that politicians would stoop so low to derail actual, good legislation with utter crap! 

UPDATE: Seems that Dan Kotowski "hid" the proposed Illinois AWB in the text of an Illinois House Bill. See http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=32771&st=150#entry376340


Seems that the ISRA has it on pretty good word that Illinois is trying to "ban all semi-autos" during the lame-duck session this week.

Not sure how legal a total ban would be, especially in light of the recent 7th Circuit ruling, but I figured that this has significant impact on our ability to continue our sports...

The ISRA has learned from a credible source that Illinois Senate President John Cullerton will introduce a so called “assault weapons” ban on Wednesday when the legislature returns for its “lame duck” session. Cullerton hopes to ramrod the bill through and get it to Governor Quinn for signature by Friday. If he is successful at doing so, nearly every gun you currently own will be banned and will be subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police. 
Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Pump action shotguns would be banned as well... 

Beginning Wednesday, call your State Senator and politely tell him or her that you are a law abiding firearm owner and that you strongly oppose Cullerton’s gun ban.  Also, be sure to call your State Representative as well and politely deliver the same message. If you do not know who your State Representative please call the Illinois State Board of Elections at 217-782-4141.
