Total Gun Ban Legislation To Be Submitted: Confiscation to Follow

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 
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.

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:
    * 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 .
    * 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.
    * Post this alert to any and all Internet 
boards and blogs to which you belong.
or renew your membership in the ISRA. Encourage 
your friends and family to join as well.
    * 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.
