Thanks for the update... even though that's a dubious honor to have, it's a "talking point" in debating.

Tracking all of those IL bills, plus the shell bills for floor amendments, is going to be insanely time consuming.

Gee, and people wonder why I like living in Arizona. We have bills that are moving such as,
AZ [R] HB 2103 - lowers CCW permit age to 19 for active duty military or honorably discharged vets. That one has traction.
AZ [R] HB 2127 - Removes prohibtion for wildlife guides to carry a firearm other than a revolver or pistol.
AZ [R] HB 2336 - Clarifies that law enforcement officers cannot carry a firearm and consume alcohol at licensed liquor establishments unless in the performance of their duties.
AZ [R] HB 2443 - Would allow active duty military personnel stationed in Arizona to obtain hunting permits.
AZ [R] HB 2483 - Strengthens the protection of the lawful use of firearms, airguns and archery equipment on private property.
This next one I LOVE...
AZ [R] HB 2517 - Would add penalties for political subdivisions (counties, cities, etc.) that enact ordinances, regulations, etc. that violate state firearms preemption law. Also allows for civil actions by those adversely affected by these illegal ordinances.
Also, if forbids local political subdivisions from reimbursing those sued under this act - a Councilman who tries to ban guns can be personally sued, and the city/county can't pay him for it!
AZ [R] HB 2535 - Would facilitate transfers of NFA (National Firearms Act) registered firearms by requiring local law enforcement to sign the required certification on legitimate transfers within 15 days after receiving a request to do so. (This one is HELD in committee, might make it, might not)
AZ [R] SB 1063 - Unless a state or local government facility provides readily accessible storage for those entering with a firearm, the no firearms sign they post is unenforceable.
AZ [R] SB 1064 - Under the expanding gas language in ARS 13-105.19, an air-operated pistol or rifle can be considered a firearm. This differs with ARS 13-3101.4, which uses action of an explosive to define a firearm. By having two definitions, law enforcement can cherry-pick the statute they want to apply.
The next is the only bill monitored by AZCDL to not be in the "support" category to make it past committee, this one is "monitor" category. I don't see a problem with it.
AZ [R] SB 1118 - A hunter can be arrested for criminal tresspass for refusing to leave private land after being requested to do so by law enforcement acting at the request of the property owner.
AZ [R] SB 1294 - Any federal law in violation of the Second Amendment would be void in Arizona. Would also make it illegal for any state agency or employee to enforce any federal firearms laws.
The above information was taken from the Arizona Citizen Defense League website bill tracking website, http://www.azcdl.org/html/bill_tracking.html , and the ones I posted ONLY include those bills which have made it through at least one committee hearing. Bills that don't make it to committee soon will be effectively dead. At this time, none of the "oppose" bills have made it through a committee hearing at this time, although we do have a few proposed, including one to strip Constitutional Carry...but after reading the Governor's signing statement when she signed it, I could confidently state she would veto a repeal without hesitation.

The one I love, that holding political subdivisions criminally/civilly liable for violating preemption...that one has over HALF of the House as sponsors or co-sponsors.

HB5726 - gives concealed carry instructors civil immunity.

I'm going to have to start getting up earlier to beat Trent on the Illinois stuff!

In other states today:

Utah HB0134 would set up a firearm safety program (voluntary) that would distribute safety packets that include information, a gun lock and a coupon good towards a gun safe

Alaska SB176 would prevent colleges from enacting any gun policy more restrictive that state law

Missouri SJR36 would add a ballot measure to the next election to change the wording of the state constitution regard the right to keep and bear arms

Haha it's not about getting up earlier, it's about being later.

If you check early in the morning you get "yesterday's stuff."

If you check later in the evening, after all the bills have been filed for the day, you get "today's stuff."

We pull our bills at 4:30 in the morning via an automated CRON job, only time we can do it because of all the other jobs running on the server between 11pm and 4am.

And you can be assured my butt will NOT be up at 4:30am when the script is done!

Found one yesterday on fireworks. Strong push to legalize them (finally).

Well, as you know, we are doing 50 states and the federal government. We try to do as little 'by hand' as humanly possible with the amount we bring in each day.

The wife goes through them first because we are pulling laws via key words and phrases, so she has to eliminate all the ones that come in with one of those phrases but isn't really a gun law. Then I go through them to rate them and do my little synopsis of them so I can post them at forums and on our FB page and group.

Oh and fireworks? They are legal here in PA, as long as you aren't a PA resident

Yeah I can imagine that it's pretty time consuming. What about the states that don't have a requirement to have the full modified text available (which IL fortunately does)?? E.g. "Change And to Or in Section 2, Paragraph 3, Line 2"?

That has to be really tough to track down sometimes and get a synopsis.

So far (knock on wood) we haven't had many issues but it does take up a good chunk of time every morning. We LOVE days like today when nothing came in

edit: And yes sometimes we have to go to our state laws area and compare, or find the section they are changing so we can understand the context of the change ... not horrible to do

This is one place where two of my rights are in conflict. First, as a gun owner, I want to be able to carry everywhere. However, The rights of a property owner should not be trounced upon.

If I own a business, it should be my decision. Just like it was my decision to walk by a business with a "no gun" sign, it is his right to have it up. Of course, I like to let them know they lost a customer as well, but I respect their right as a property owner.

No matter how this particular bill goes, one right will be shaved in favor of another.

WA, where I am currently hanging my hat, seems to have a good compromise to the above. You can walk into a store with your OC firearm. If they ask you to leave, you must, or be arrested for trespass.
Much as you can walk in with your voice and brain, but if you start using your 1st rights by giving a speech, you may be asked to leave and must do so.
