DEFCOM 1 RED LEVEL EMERGENCY DIRE STRAIGHTS MURDER LEVEL TYRANY ALERT
HB 815 amendment 1 & 2 and HB 1263 amendments 5 & 6 were passed out of
the Illinois Senate Public Health Committee last night, advancing to
the full Senate floor for a debate and possible approval later today.
As we highlighted yesterday, the legislation would ban a plethora of
firearms including semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns, and
pump action shotguns, forcing residents to register them with State
Police as a pre-cursor to confiscation.
The two bills, which are being spearheaded by Democratic Senate leader
John Cullerton and have a 50-50 chance of passage, would also severely
restrict private gun ranges by placing them under government
“If passed the bills would ban most all semi-auto handguns, rifles,
and shotguns as well as pump rifle and shotguns. The proposed
legislation would also close down most shooting ranges and clubs that
are open to the public or conduct events open to the public. Included
in the legislation is a ban on ammunition magazines with a capacity to
hold more than 10 rounds, a requirement to register all guns and
magazines with the Illinois State Police,” reports IllinoisCarry.com.
In the video clip above, State Senator Dale Righter outlines the
details of the two bills and notes that they represent a violation of
second amendment rights. “I will not support any legislation….that
requires anyone in Illinois to register their firearms with State
government,” said Righter.
The legislation represents an effort to apply Chicago’s restrictive
gun control laws to the rest of the state of Illinois. Given the fact
that the vast majority of Chicago’s law-abiding citizens have been
disarmed via gun control, it’s unsurprising that the Windy City has a
soaring gun violence rate because only the criminals are allowed to
In 1982 Chicago passed a ban on all handguns except for those
registered with the city before the ban was enacted. In 2010, the U.S.
Supreme Court ruled that the ban was unconstitutional, but city
officials rushed to re-write the law.
Since the handgun ban took effect, the number of murders in Chicago
committed using handguns has been 40% higher than before the ban, and
has spiked even higher in recent years, proving that the gun ban
actually served to cause an increase violent crime.
