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.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS

The Department of Defense has ordered all once fired brass must be destroyed and no longer sold to commercial re-loading companies. The DOD will lose significant income in selling surplus brass. The civilian and LE ammo supply will lose significant volume in an already very tight market for ammunition. Protests are being filed at the congressional level to reverse the policy. Be aware this threat to training and recreational shooting is very real, unlike some other concerns circulating on the internet. As previously predicted, the anti-gun forces are coming to ban the ammo this time, not the guns. Do what you can . . . .
HB 48, a bill banning private firearm sales will come up for a vote in the Illinois House this week. This bill is a direct attack on your 2nd Amendment rights!
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO:
1. Contact the Sponsor of HB 48, Rep. Harry Osterman, (217) 782-8088, and politely tell the person on the phone that you are a law-abiding gun owner and that you resent being targeted by Rep. Osterman and his gun control bills. Please make calls to Osterman's office on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
2. Contact your state representative and politely advise him or her that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you oppose HB 48 and that you would like them to vote against HB 48 when it comes up for a vote. Contact your representative only once. If you do not know who your state representative is, then go to the Illinois State Board of Elections' District/Official Search Tool and follow the directions for identifying your representative.
3. Send copies of this alert to all your gun owning friends and ask them to call as well.
4. Post this alert to any and all internet bulletin boards and blogs to which you belong.
A copy of this alert is posted on the ISRA website.
Remember, only you can save your gun rights!
