    I'm thoroughly confused about SB57. It mandates bakcground checks for private sales at gun shows, but it had a good preemption clause that would have overturned every municipal gun law with the exception of Chicago's. For reasons unbeknownst to me, however, the House Agriculture and Conservation Committee voted to remove the preemption language. All the bill does now is create a hassle for people at gun shows.

    I called the ISRA yesterday, but apparently Pearson won't be available to take calls until tomorrow (I plan on contacting him again). Does anyone have a clue as to what's going on with this bill? I'm hoping they plan on slipping the preemption language back in once it reaches the full House, because right now this appears to be an anti-gun bill, yet the ISRA is still endorsing it.

    The text (including the amendments) ishere
