All indications are that a pair of antigun bills will be up for votes this week in the Illinois General Assembly. Both of these bills constitute serious threats to your right to keep and bear arms.
House Bill 12 is a “One Gun a Month” bill that is designed to strip you of your constitutionally protected right to own and use firearms in a lawful manner. The intent of the sponsors of HB12 is to stop the plus-up in firearm sales after Obama's election and to run gun shops out of business. This scheme also includes licensing and registration of you, the lawful firearm owners. Of course, nothing in the bill limits how many guns criminals may buy.
House Bill 845 is another bill designed to bully lawful firearm owners. Under this proposal, you would lose your right to own firearms if you failed to report lost or stolen guns to the police. That's right, someone steals your guns and you pay the price by losing your Second Amendment rights. Of course, this bill contains no penalties for the criminal that stole your guns in the first place. This is the kind of nonsense that the anti-gun Chicago delegation wants to shove down your throat.
