Springfield Report for May 24

Today we worked on shoring up our support against SB1007. The anti-gunners were out in full force. I would think we would see a vote on either the  magazine bill or the private sales bill soon.

We are also assured that we will be going into an extended session. That means all the antigun bills will be extended. Contrary to popular belief extended sessions do not require a three fifths majority to pass. The three fifths majority only involves when the law become effective. If the law is to become effective immediately that would involve a three fifths majority.

This fight is a long way from over. Thank you for your support.
