URGENT ALERT – YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE TO DECLARE THIS WEEK AS “GUN CONTROL WEEK” IN THE ILLINOIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY
 

According to information obtained by the ISRA, the gun control movement plans a final, all-out push to destroy your rights and take your guns away from you this week in the Illinois General Assembly. Under orders from Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, Speaker of the House Mike Madigan may require that the House of Representatives remain in session until it passes Daley’s 2010 gun control package. Among the bills that Daley has demanded that Madigan get passed are the following:

HB180 – a scheme to run gun shops out of business by forcing shops to get licensed and comply with a slew of burdensome regulations.

HB5480 – would ban private firearm sales and force citizens to process private sales through licensed gun shops. (Yes, those are the same gun shops that will be run out of business by HB180 above)

HB5495 – would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month. Of course, criminals are exempt from this gun-rationing scheme.

HB5751 – would give you 90 days to surrender all your semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns to the state police or face felony prison time.

HB5849 – would make it a felony to use a case other than one designed for a firearm to transport it and give the police greater power to confiscate your guns for “improper transportation” even if you have committed no other crime.

HB6123 – would make it a felony to sell a firearm to someone who looks like a gang member (ie: Black, Hispanic, shaved heads (all races), tattoos (all races), motorcyclists (all races), etc.)

Daley wants these bills passed once and for all before the McDonald v Chicago decision is handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court later this summer. He will spare no expense or dirty trick to get these bills passed THIS WEEK.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO SAVE YOUR GUNS:

1. Phone your State Representative and politely tell him/her that you do not support any of the bills above or any other gun control legislation and that you’d appreciate it if they would vote against all gun control legislation. If you do not know how to contact your legislator, then follow this link: Illinois State Board of Elections website.

2. Copy this alert and send it to all your friends and tell them to act today!

3. Please post this alert to any and all internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you may belong.

4. The ISRA needs to raise $150,000 by July 4th in order to defray expenses of fighting Daley in the General Assembly. That is why we badly need your financial support.
