    Amendments filed and passed rules committee include provisions for no-grandfathering banning of "assault weapons" and "accessories", both of which would be punishable as a Class 1 or Class 2 felony (15 and 7 years sentencing, respectively).

    Residents would have 300 days to comply (selling / surrendering all contraband) or become felons.

    (Amendments 2-7 are relevant)

    I guess the 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments to the US Constitution just don't apply in Illinois.

    I read proposed Amendment 7 as providing for the grandfathering of assault weapons and attachments. But, it looks like there is no grandfathering of large capacity magazines.

    IF it passes with the rest. The way they are submitting these bills, 2,3,4,5, and 6 could pass, 7 fails, and we have an AWB without grandfathering.

    Called my reps, again. I call about every other day. Send about 2 or 3 e-mails a day, do snail mail once a week. I need a secretary.

    discharged by a single function of the firing device, if you pull the trigger once and 8 or more rounds fire then that is a single function of the firing device and your illegal. if you pull the trigger once and only one round comes out that is also a single functon and thus allows semi-auto weapons

    Maybe I am blind but I have read it four times and cant find where it bans large magazines.

    That's messed up. I do not see how they can circumvent the Constitution on this. I mean if they want to usurp it then they need to do it correctly and go through the process to amend it. I always thought that federal law trumped state law anyways. If I were in IL, then I would keep mine and take this all the way to the USSC.

    Easy to say on the internet. Much harder to do sitting in prison waiting years for appeals while your wife and children starve from no income.

    Somehow I doubt that law, if passed, would make the people who live in Chicago any safer.
    Don`t let them do that to you!

    Chicago already has its own assault weapons ban. They're just trying to screw over the rest of us now.

    Yup, That "assault weapon" ban `s really made the streets of Chicago at least as safe as they were during the Prohibition Era with it`s outstanding citizens like Al Capone, Jake Guzik, Frank Nitti, the Purple Gang and all the rest of "da Good Fellas!" :neener:
    Naw, dose guys would never stoop to using violence because it`s bad for business!An besides Big Al ran 'da best zoop kichin in Chick -ahhgo" :barf:

    No need to go to prison, ship it to me for gunsmithing during the legal challenge. That way you still own it, you just don't posess it in IL.

    Also, that "wives and children starving from no income" line was pretty sexist - some of us wimmins make good money.

    Wasn't trying to be sexist. My wife doesn't work; and we have 5 children to feed. If my income was cut off, they'd have pretty hard times ahead of them.

    This goes further than New York because there's no "10 round" or "7 round" limit.. it just flat out bans the weapons and (after 300 days) you're a felon-in-possession.

    EDIT: They're debating Amendment 2 right now, if that passes, even 10-22's will be illegal.

    Amendment 4 up (pistols)

    This will ban all semi-auto pistols capable of holding more than 10 rounds (she's specifically talking about Glocks now)
