Illinois Total Gun Ban Legislation To Be Submitted: Confiscation to Follow

The Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) is claiming that it has learned from a credible source that Illinois State Senate President John Cullerton plans to introduce an “assault weapons” ban on Wednesday January 2nd during the course of the “lame duck” session.

Cullerton’s apparent strategy is to ram the bill through the Illinois State Congress during the “lame duck” and provide the passed version to Governor Quinn by Friday for signing. Quinn is, of course, a notorious gun grabber.

If the bill passes, according to the ISRA, “nearly every gun you [Illinois residents] currently own will be banned and will be subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police.”

The ISRA states,
Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Pump action shotguns would be banned as well. This would be a very comprehensive ban that would include not only so-called “assault weapons” but also such classics as M1 Garands and 1911-based pistols. There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering. You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.
According to The Truth About Guns, there will actually be two bills – “one for semi-automatic rifles, lever guns, shotguns and handguns with certain features (e.g., threaded barrels); and one for ammunition magazine capacity.”


The ISRA has posted five points on “What You Need To Do To Save Your Guns.” They are as follows:
  1. Beginning Wednesday, call your State Senator and politely tell him or her that you are a law abiding firearm owner and that you strongly oppose Cullerton’s gun ban. Also, be sure to call your State Representative as well and politely deliver the same message. If you do not know who your State Representative please call the Illinois State Board of Elections at 217-782-4141.
  2. Forward this alert to all your gun owning friends and family members. Be sure to tell them to call their senators and representatives as well. 
  3. Post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards and blogs to which you belong. 
  4. Join or renew your membership in the ISRA. Encourage your friends and family to join as well. 
  5. Make a generous donation to the ISRA by clicking the link below. We are in desperate need of your financial support to help beat back the onslaught of gun grab bills coming our way in 2013.
In the wake of the Newtown school shooting, the anti-gun agenda will undoubtedly be pressed harder and harder into concrete actions against the Second Amendment. The attacks on gun ownership will likely be coming from all sides in the coming months. Thus, while one may attempt to achieve as many victories for the Second Amendment as possible through the legislative and political process, it should always be remembered that there should be no compromise and no debate when it comes to our basic rights.

This is absolutely thrilling! I'm sure it will be a beautiful genocide after the confiscation. At least they're bringing the gas chamber to us (aerosol engineering). We can thank all of the brain damaged morons whom appear to have messed their diapers when these issues are discussed.

You knew this was coming when Rahm left the White House to go to Chicago. Nothing in gov/politics happens by chance, its all by design, its been in the works for years. Fast n Furious, Aurora, Sandy Hook, all staged to falsely blame the 2nd Amendment.

Its rumored they're gonna create another false flag, prob in Chicago, worse than Sandy Hook to solidify the gun grab politically. They need political cover for raping the Constitution n your rights.

They're preparing for the take over of the US. The scumpire will crash the world economies, n when they do, they want a complete 3rd world Police State in the old US on re-entry, worse than NKorea, China's their model. Their problem is you cant have a Police State with an armed population.

Our founding fathers fought n died to escape this same tyranny n start this new Republic. Our fathers, grandfathers, n great grandfathers died fighting to keep these liberty rights for our families.

Like the Statue of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the scumpire cant wait to take down our Statue of Liberty!

The 2nd Amendment is the line in the sand. The scumpire hates us for it, they cant control us completely because of it. Its what separates us from the rest of the world they control. You give up your 2nd Amendment birth right, our fathers died in vain. Give up our Constitution n the Republic is over! Hold the line!

You people have it all wrong; don't waste your time "writing to your congressman", that will only act as a catharsis for your frustrations.
Instead, tell your congressman: "Go for it & see how it turns out"

Yeah, it'll go into effect quickly, before any appeals can be made, and right after another false flag operation. Probably going to be a big false flag operation. Everyone needs to carry a filming device with them, and be using it, even if you end up erasing most of what you record. And whatever you do, don't give it up to "ANYONE" without having a backup copy HIDDEN somewhere and known about by a trusted friend.

Dishonest headline: banning semi-automatics, which were banned in 94 (and with the Brady Act in 93 brought the gun homicide rate down from 14,000 to 8,000 in 1999. Since it expires, the gun homicide rate as slipped back up by over nearly 30%.

All other developed nations (except Russia, which has the second highest gun homicide rate)have banned assault weapons, and their rate of gun homicides is 90-99% lower (per capita) than in the US. Germany, with 1 gun for every 3 citizens, has a 90% lower rate; Japan and the UK, where guns are legal but strictly regulated, have rates 99% less (in 2006, Japan, with criminal gangs, had 2 gun homidies!)

So calling a ban on semi-automatics a "total gun ban" is an outright lie, and when someone starts with big lie, I do not believe a word they say thereafter.

All mass murders this year (20) have utilized semi-automatics. That should ring a bell.

For confirmation of the truth about guns and murder and regulation, check out Wikipedia, Nationmaster, and gunpolicy.org, all of which document their data.

In the US more than 30,000 gun deaths are year occur, and since 9/11, more gun deaths have happened than American lives lost in our most lethal war, WWII. We are killing each other more than the fascists during all out war.

If you want to continue this carnage, continue to lie and support the ability of terrorists, criminals, and crazies to obtain assault weapons and magazines. The NRA, and anyone who supports their positions (most NRA members in fact support reform and common sense regulations which the NRA opposes) have much blood on their hands. This article lies to continue the bloodshed.

Why have a bill addressing magazine size if there is a complete banning of guns makes no sense if no one has a gun why worry about mag size.

and they will get everything to the last popgun from the IL chattle slaves and not even one gun will be fired in revolt nor one will go off even by accident.

Watch close America there going to show you just how easy this little round up of your firearms is going to be. once they have succeeded in IL the rest of the country will be a cake walk.
Anyone figuring to not comply will be made such an example of that there will not be another willing to attempt it.

The headline contains 2 big lies:
1) all guns will be banned. No! Only assault weapons which are less than 1% of total guns in US.
2) Confiscation: here is a summary of the Governor's proposed bill:

"Quinn’s plan prohibits the manufacture, delivery, sale, purchase, or possession of semiautomatic assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. People who already possess these items could keep them, but would need to register their guns with the police."

So 99% of guns would not be banned and existing assault weapons would not be confiscated. So no weapons would be confiscated but no new semi-automatics could be sold. Just like the 94 ban, which with the Brady Act in 93, brought down the gun homicide rate from 14,000 to 8,000 in 5 years. Since the Repubs let the ban expire, the gun homicide rate as climbed up nearly 30%.

If you love gun deaths (30,000 a yr in US), you might want to believe the lies, but in all other wealthy nations, gun deaths are 90-99% lower (per capita) than in the US. Even Germany, with 1 gun for every 3 citizens, has 90% fewer per capita gun homcides. Gun suicides and accidental deaths also decline.

2 lies in one headline: how foul can you be? And if you believe it, how stupid can you be. A person so stupid should not be allowed to own any guns!

It’s the gun control troll Dale that’s full of shit.
The assertion that the U.S. has the highest murder rate of the advanced nations due to a proliferation of firearms is faulty. The overwhelming number of gun homicides are confined to small urban enclaves with the most restrictive gun laws and the most illegally owned weapons. Rural areas of the country (red counties) have very low murder and violent crime rates despite a high percentage of firearm ownership and more lenient gun laws. The correlation between firearm availability and violent crime is actually the inverse in these areas. The WSJ had an opinion piece by David Kopel in the December 18 edition: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323723104578185271857424036.html Kopel showed that mass shootings like the one in Newtown have steadily increased in the last forty years while all violent crimes, including homicides, are today half of what they were in 1980. This despite a large increase in the number of privately owned firearms over the same period.

Abortions are way ahead with 1.6 million deaths per year in the USA alone. Fetus is dismembered and flushed because its their body. How convenient! lefties propose that RIGHT of aborting as sacred and rightous and view the right to defense including gun ownership as violent nonsense. If it saves one life stop the abortions, put the child up for adoptions.

STOP this culture of death where citizens are watching the debasement of the value of life and its spill over effects on females and teenagers. I hand in my GUN if Gov't reverse its killing fields in our country.

Mark McCandlish said...

The illogical quality of a gun ban is the assumption that, the gun itself is the cause of the violence. They are merely tools. In recent months, two murders have been committed by one person shoving another onto the subway tracks just as a subway train was pulling into a station in NYC. It would be the same to blame the subway trains for these murders. But you don't see any of the leftists "progressives" in this blog calling for the closing of subway systems do you?

As a society, we are forced to make certain trade-offs. The sheer magnitude of gun ownership in America makes it impossible for this country's government to take away our liberties (except in the way they ARE doing it)--very gradually, progressively, so few will object until it is too late.

History is filled with the blood of innocents, whose lives were taken after their own governments instituted gun bans. How many, since 1910? Between 55 and 56 million people. And nearly all, were instituted by leftist political organizations who rationalized such enforcement as a means by which "peace would be realized within our lifetime". Fat chance.

Guns DON'T kill ! Someone has to squeeze the trigger. I think if we ban all methods of killing we will be nude. We will still have murder committed by naked people with no clothes or worldly belongings. Take away firearms and everything else will follow.

Since when is a semi automatic weapon an "assault rifle"? Call me crazy but last time I checked, in order for a gun to be classified as an assault rifle it had to be fully automatic or burst fire. Kick the politicians and news medias in the dick for slandering regular semiauto firearms and classing them with weapons that only Federal Firearm License (FFL) holders, military, police, CIA, etc. use. An AR-15 is a derivitive of the M-16. The only likeness is outward appearance. The bolt, carrier, safety mechanism, and trigger assembly are different on both guns. I've dissasembled, reassembled and fired both weapons. (It's a requirement to fire the M-16 for Military members). The AR was my own personal firearm. Oh, I forgot to mention, although an AR-15 is convertible to burst or fully automatic capability, the parts require an FFL to purchase. Any such conversion by a non FFL holding citizen is subject to federal prosecution (25 years in prison) if my memory serves me correctly.

Why do people refer to regular semiautomatic weapons as assault rifles? I can understand banning full and burst fire weapons, but really people, hunting rifles? Lets not even talk about pump action shotguns. They have a slower reload than revolvers! Limiting magazine size is one thing. I can understand why a 30 round mag might be seen as a bit much. However, a well trained and practiced individual can fire and reload 3, 10-round mags in just a couple seconds less time than the average person could shoot a 30 round mag. That's just food for thought... When it comes to gun crimes being lower in other countries it's because their societies are different. You don't see gang members wandering the streets here in Japan, nor do you hear about rapes, fights, or murders, (UNLESS it was an American involved). Hence our bad reputation in Okinawa. Getting rid of guns won't solve much, if anything. The US was founded with guns and will fall with them as well. This (mentality) has been that way since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, that from which, is derived.

If homicides with guns are on the rise. Then why, since 1992 to 2011 (mind you the awb lifted in 2004) has the murder rate and violent crime rate down 50% even with population growth... Wouldnt we see a marked increase with your statistic (wherever you are trying to pull it from) in those numbers?

If I lived in IL, I would worry more about who's going to show up in the lame duck session. Those who ZerO gave raises to? Those who are bought-n-pd for by Soros or Bloomberg? I'm bettin' the session was planned around who will & will not be there. Call your Rep and remind him he needs to show up, debate, then vote no on both. My theory is starting to unfold. Place Emmanuel in Chicago to clean up & make it safe for the Brotherhood Elite's Admn, secure a new place for the US Capitol, then declare Marshall Law, the people storm the White House, but no one's home. They are all hiding in Chi-town.

Nice work AP.
Lefties and righties getting back to fighting each other instead of coming together in opposition to government. No understanding of the big picture, just lots of emotion, fear and anger........great for gun sales. Won't do squat to save the USA from the fascist quagmire it is in. After all it was the gun lovers who started and supported

The war on drugs.......filling up our prisons, creating a slave labor supply for big corporate piggies. Take a bow gun lovers, it's on YOU.

Stupid wars and military spending that crippled the economy. From Reagan to both dirty Bush's, right wing gun nuts could never get enough war. From Vietnam Cambodia Laos, half a dozen countries in central America to half the middle east where, once again right wing fools got all afraid and needed Bush to start wars to keep them safe. Wars crippled the economy. Corrupt Republicans like Dick Cheney enriched all his corporate buddies with YOUR tax dollars. Thanks gun nuts, nice job again!

The Patriot Act. First go round it was an entirely right wing caper. Opposed by lefties, the righties loved it cause Bush said it would keep them safe (just like their guns) and they bought it, hook line and sinker. Dumb dumb dumb right wingers actually supported the patriot act. Brutal.

Torture. A sick twisted gutless cowardly crime. The stuff of Nazi swine, dictators maniacs, once again Bush sold it to dumb right wing gun nuts (to keep them safe) and once again they bought it and defended it.


Yeah the gun nuts have been really vital in defending our country and the constitution (blah blah blah) from fascism. What a bunch of pathetic clowns!
Clearly AP welcomes those idiots to come here and vent their anger without learning a damn thing.....stay dumb stay angry. Clearly any decent moral truth seeking person who understands the need for all of us to get together is at the wrong site. Too bad for me, there were many good things this site did and I will miss it. But I do have some standards........

So a certified crazy kid who lives in his moms basement with no windows, goes bat crazy and murders his mom, teachers and children, and it's the guns fault? What if he had a knife? What if he used a drone airplane? Would we be banning utensils and unmaned drones next? Why aren't vaccines banned? They kill more children and infants than 50 Sandy Hooks combined every month! Obviously this is about tyranny. It's not about guns. It's about an armed public. And if the mother had locked up her guns, like a lot of States demand, this would not have happened. If the Pharmaceutical companies and his doctor hadn't doped up this kid, this wouldn't have happened. Let's blame the gun, which is designed to fire ammunition. The only thing that actually worked. But we sure as heck need more vaccines, drugs, drones, and lame duck traitors in Congress to make sure that not a damn thing in this country gets fixed right.

FEAR. If you think guns are the problem you have been brainwashed by FEAR. My car can kill you. The CIA's drugs can kill you. Obama can kill you with a drone. But you want me, a lawfully abiding citizen, who can read between the lines of this corrupt, power-hungry government, to give up my gun, after watching half of my civil liberties destroyed in the last decade, waiting for the global economic implosion brought on by our banks which are supposedly regulated by honest Congress men and women to give my guns to those very same people, just because you are afraid that someone in your community, who can probably run you over with a car, might have access to a gun in the house? And this makes sense to you? If it does, you deserve a tyrannical government. You deserve to be a slave, and you don't deserve freedom, liberty or safety, because you do not understand how those things were acquired in the first place. You can not put anything in the proper perspective.

I am not a gun nut. I own one gun and have less than 100 rounds on hand. I am a liberty nut. I believe in civil liberties and rights for everyone. Even gay people. Even minorities. Even Iranians. Even Russians. Even corrupt politicians. Even stupid liberals who have no concept of how to keep their families safe. Hey liberals..how well did the Newtown police perform in saving those children? How quick was their response? What if that killer had come to your house, do you really think the police would have saved you and your liberal family in time? Really?! No you'd be dead, and your neighbor with his shotgun, handgun, AR-15, or squirt gun would have had more of a chance of saving your life than a police officer located 2.5 miles away at the local donut shop who was to busy hassling a couple of teenagers to even hear the call come over his radio.

You have been served Libtards!

This issue brings many comments to the table - both sides. However, wasn't the 2nd Amendment put into place for us *we the people* to protect ourselves against corrupt government? Didn't Hitler and Stalin start with gun restrictions, gun bans and finally gun confiscation? From my research on history, this did not turn out well for the masses of innocent people. Guns can be used to kill, but it is the person that puts the ammo in the gun and makes a decision to use it. Criminals will always have guns as weapons whether there is a gun ban or not.

Why would anyone think that outlawing guns will keep them from those who wish to use them for a crime? The sale and use of drugs have been outlawed for how long and are they still being sold and used? Remember when the law was to only have car manufactures install seats belts in cars? How long did it take before it was law to ware them? How long after the assult lae band do you think all guns will be banned? Just saying.

There will be no "gun confiscation"...

ONLY CIVIL WAR.

The right to bear arms is what we are naturally endowed with by our Creator. This right is not "given" by the "goverment" nor provided for by the Constitution. The 2nd Amendment is not for the people...it is for the government TO KEEP FROM ABRIDGING THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE TO BEAR ARMS.

Now if you don't like this, you're going to have to first amend the Constitution, THE HIGHEST LAW OF THE LAND. And if you try to take the weapons of We the People, you will be guilty of breaking the LAW and will be fired upon. Guaranteed.

The right to bear arms has nothing to do with hunting. It has to do with keeping tyranny at bay. Believe it.

My life was saved twice after I was targeted for robbery. The first one tried to shoot me in the heart, I drew and put 4 bullets in him stopping him from squeezing the trigger.The second one walked past me turned around and just started shooting,14 times! I put 2 in his chest. I took 5 bullets. I have been in these areas numerous times. If I were un-armed my children would have no father, my wife, no husband and my 3 grand-children would never learn to say the words:
" I love you pop pop ".

The one company, a major media company I worked for wanted to fire me. They even wanted me to provide the cross and nails! Responsibility is the answer to possessing a firearm. To Rosey & the like, get out of your mother's womb and walk were we walk! You dare not have the courage.
