The Illinois State Rifle Association issued an urgent alert this morning regarding moves by State Senator Antonio Munoz (D-Chicago) that, if passed, would result in the banning and confiscation of all magazines over 10 round capacity.
Anti-gun Chicago Sen. Antonio Munoz today filed an amendment to SB1002 that would result in the banning and confiscation of all magazines over 10 rounds.
THE BOTTOM LINE: If Munozs bill passes, youd go to jail longer for having a standard AR-15 magazine in your own home than you would if you robbed a liquor store.
HERES WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR GUN RIGHTS:
1. Immediately contact your State Senator and politely tell the person who answers the phone that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm owner who opposes SB1002. Advise the person further that you would like the Senator to vote against SB1002 should it come to the floor.If you do not know who your State Senator is, the Illinois State Board of Elections has an interactive search page here: www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx
If you already know who your State Senator is and just need the contact info, you can find that here: www.ilga.gov/senate/.
2. Pass this alert on to your friends and family; tell them to make calls as well.
3. Post this alert to any and all Internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you belong.
