Latest Round Of Municipal Meeting To Ban Guns In Illinois

The Illinois State Rifle Association has posted their updated list of cities and towns in Illinois seeking to ban guns. Assuming that the Illinois General Assembly overrides Gov. Pat Quinn's amendatory veto of HB 183, they have 10 days to have their gun bans in place. The override is on the calendar and the General Assembly is expected to take it up this coming week.

The order staying the ruling in Shepard v. Madigan and Moore v. Madigan expires on Tuesday. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has stated there will be no more extensions of their stay. Attorney General Lisa Madigan does have until July 22nd to file an appeal of the Court's ruling. An override would, it is my understanding, moot those cases and any chance of overturning it on appeal.

From ISRA:

As you know, Bloomberg has teamed up with Emanuel and Quinn to impose gun ban and confiscation schemes across Illinois. But, time is running out on Bloomberg and the gun grabbers. More localities are looking to pass gun bans and confiscations before the deadline comes.

If you think it is OK for the Mayor of New York to tell you what kinds of firearms you may own and which you may not, then just sit back and do nothing.

On the other hand, if you value your freedom... if you value your gun rights, here is what you need to do:

1. No matter where you live, plan to be at one of the meetings listed below. Be sure to bring a friend or two along with you.

2. Wear IGOLD or NRA hats and/or teeshirts.

3. Be prepared to vigorously defend your rights.

4. If you see media there, approach them and tell them that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm owner and that you do not support gun bans.

5. Be sure to get to the meeting site at least 45 minutes early so you will get a seat. We need to make our voices heard.

6. Pass this alert on to you friends and family and tell them to attend meetings too.

7. Post this to all forums to which you belong.

Again, the question to you is, “Do you want Mayor Bloomberg telling you what guns you may own?”
