Witness Slips Needed In Illinois - II

Illinois Carry issued a more extensive alert yesterday.
The Wolves Are at The Door
Witness Slips & Legislator Visits Needed!

Our last Call to Action asked your help opposing SB2561 Prepackage Explosive Component in Senate Committee. Unfortunately the bill passed out of the Senate and is now scheduled to be heard in the House Judiciary Committee on April 17. Your help is needed to prevent this once vetoed bill from reaching the Governor's desk again. Join us in opposing Senator Morrison's repeated attack on our rights.

Another, more venomous attack by Ms. Morrison is her SB2314 Assault Weapons – Municipality, an attempt to repeal the State's sole authority to regulate “assault weapons”. This bill, when inserted into an earlier attempt to ban bump stocks, was described by a rabidly anti-gun House Member as a “poison pill” that killed his own work against us. We must fight an increasing patchwork of laws from one town to another.  Your witness slips opposing SB2314 will be the antidote to this legislative poison.

Also in the Senate, SB2247 Ban Bump Fire Stockrepresents the work of a bizarre, newly formed coalition of anti-gun legislators who once stood with us. Make no mistake, we oppose SB2247 as much as we oppose any proposals made on behalf of the gun control groups vying for control of this state. We ask that you do the same.

More critically, while your phone calls and witness slips are important, we must up the ante by making personal visits to our legislators' offices. Groups who oppose our rights have been making headway with this approach – an approach we must ourselves adopt in order to neutralize their work.

Take the time to establish personal, face to face communications with your State Senators and Representatives. Together, we can counter the anti's lies with our truths.

Join us in opposing these bills by filing witness slips today!
