What is considered “modern”?
They had full auto machine pistols in 1896
Actually, I believe gun registration will be tied to records of our purchases of guns in gun shops that the government has records of and the IRS. Having the IRS take our homes, property, bank accounts unless we turn them in. Something like that is how they will attack it.
Funny how democrats NEVER talk about this stuff BEFORE an election.
They lie and lie.
And the people vote for Santa Claus.
And then are STUNNED when the true democrats come out.
I am sure that Bill Ayers, Ruvrund Wrong, and the rest of the hoodies are quaking in their boots. /s
Actually, this bill follows the plan liberals have used to win for decades.
They want a 5 in gun control.
They go in asking for a 12.
Soon the media, Rinos, and various other imbeciles start their blather about compromise.
Everyone gets into the act, and then next thing you know, many people are patting themselves on the back about how we only got stuck with a 5 when they wanted a 12. And Oh by the way, send us more money.”
This pattern has happened so many times, I can almost predict it to the minute.
And what makes me even madder is that the dumba$$ Republicans never use the same tactic!
When will these lunatics in IL stop passing unconstitutional gun laws and get continuously slapped down by SCOTUS?? Morons don’t seem to get the message.
Illinois would be wise to ban Democrats. Look what they’ve done to that state, and Chicago, over the years. Gun control and massive gun murder rates. Out of sight taxes and huge state deficits. And taxpayers have to pay to house former Democrat governors in the prisons.
Quinn, Madigan, and Cullerton should have the intellectual honesty to put legislation on the floor to abolish the Bill of Rights. ILL-ANNOY is already a third-world banana republic where politics is a family-run cottage industry - in both political parties. The line needs to be drawn. BTW, the buzzword of “assault weapon” is simply left-wing jibber-jabber. All the weapons I would have in my home are defensive weapons, not assault weapons, regardless of calibre, magazine size, or if they have scary-looking hand-grips. If a gang is attacking you, you can’t spend time reloading with a powder horn, wad, new flint, lead ball, bear grease, and ram-rod.
Boycott - While I don’t live in Ill. I am next door in Missouri and I called and told the dear senator that I would boycott all Ill. businesses, including restaurants, casino’s and no more Chicago weekends, if this bill was passed.
The pro-gun forces in the state should immediately contact a federal judge about an injunction as soon as the law is signed. If the judge is amenable to an injunction, then word should go out to Illinois legislators both that the bill is “D.O.A.” and that they *will* be punished for voting for it.
It might even be worth it to mount a recall drive against if not the instigators, then the weaker legislators who might actually lose or do not have deep pockets. This is also because a recall will hit them in the pocketbook.
This asks them the question: “Do you love gun control enough to lose your seat *and* personally cost you several thousand dollars?”
Good to know. I will be plundering Illinois when the SHTF.
It passed committee, senate vote tomorrow. Want to close down public shooting ranges among other things. Listening to the discussion on the floor, not one of those voting know a gun from a broomstick!
The Dems must be pissing themselves with such glee right now over these proposed gun bans.
Reading this article in full it appears that revolvers will be the only legal handguns in IL.
If I were unlucky enough to live there, I guess my Ruger LCR would be safe, but I would have to give up my other babies? (1911 being one)
