CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois gun manufacturers are developing a strategy to address calls for a state assault weapons ban.
The owner of Geneseo-based ArmaLite tells Lee Enterprises newspapers in Illinois (http://bit.ly/YFvFb7) that the gun makers are considering possible action.
ArmaLite's Mark Westrom says there shouldn't be a rush to judgment following the shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school. And he says the issue of semi-automatic weapons might better be addressed at the federal level than by Illinois lawmakers.

they should all leave for Wisconsin.
go Amazon.com on them.
This is the website for Illinois State Rifle Association; they are going ballistic (no pun intended):
Tripling production and cutting AR prices in half would be pretty effective.
Springfield armory renames itself the San Antonio armory.
Yes, I know they were originally from Springfield Massachusetts as selected by George Washington .
Let the crows have Illinois. They seem to be doing a pretty good job of wrecking Chicago. Once the money makers leave Illinois, the state can deteriorate to the level that the crows wish.
Indiana would be better. Lower taxes than Wisc, right to work, and shall issue, open/concealed carry law.
No need to change the name, there's a Springfield, Texas too.
Illinois, The Midwest's California!
Actually Illinois is quite nice if you stay away from the interstates and big cities.
Right. Forgot that. Just picked a random area outside Illinois .
All the firearm manufucturers should just bite the bullet and move to Texas.
My only complaint is my AR-10 is too dang heavy.
[Let the crows have Illinois.]
I haven’t heard that term in a coon’s age.
Wisconsin is shall issue, open/concealed carry. We’re working on taxes and right to work.
We should tag team Illinois gun makers while building a fence to keep the liberals (and Chicago criminals) out of our respective states.
Why are they always “considering” a response like moving out of state??? Isn’t what the People’s Republik of Ill-uh-noise has ALREADY done to and said about any business, but especially firearms-related businesses ENOUGH to justify moving to a free state? If not now, what would EVER be enough? “I’m telling you, this is your LAST warning! I mean it! No, really! One more time and you’re getting a spanking!”
“Let the crows have Illinois. They seem to be doing a pretty good job of wrecking Chicago. Once the money makers leave Illinois, the state can deteriorate to the level that the crows wish...”
A Ralph Bakshi fan, I wager ??
As “The Simpsons” attested, there are plenty of other states with cities named Springfield.
more gimme freebie voters means more democrat politicians.
what is needed is what has always worked: more opportunity.
Obama Administrators and the enemies of the usa have set it up where it is more profitable not to work.
Reporters think the same people are buying more.
We need to have them as ubiquitous as owning cell phones.
Who would have thought forty years ago a cartoon would have predicted what the US would look like in the future?
