    It’s very important that you make these calls. We realize that you’ve been called upon to act many times so far this year. But your continued support is crucial.

    1. Call your state representative and politely tell them you are a law-abiding gun owner who objects to magazine bans. Politely advise them to vote NO on Amendment 12 – the magazine ban. If you do not know who your state representative is, then the Illinois State Board of Elections has a new interactive search page here:

    www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx


    2. Post this alert to any and all Internet Bulletin Boards or blogs to which you subscribe.

    3. Pass this alert on to your friends and family and ask them to call their legislators as well.

    Thanks Count!
    I fired off an email to all of them this morning.

    Everyone should call their reps, now if possible, but hopefully before 12:00 noon because the representatives will be on the Floor of the House at 12:00 CST. As bad as Illinois is - we don't have a magazine ban / firearm capacity limit, but that could all change today.

    I emailed EVERY rep this morning. I've received about 12 replies. Mostly from the folks on our side, but I got a couple of the "thanks for your concern" replies.

    Thanks for the update. I had to leave the office before they voted on the stupid insurance amendment.

    I think they sensed that they couldn't get the mag ban done today and it didn't come up for a vote.

    Madigan now knows that there is support for banning firearms at places that primariliy serve alcohol and there is support for setting up a "may issue" system for people that have had 5 arrests.

    Interestingly enough - the 5 arrest thing would trigger a may issue hearing for the Reverend Jesse Jackson (if he wanted a gun). It would also trigger a may issue hearing on people who have been arrested but not convicted during protests or any other kind of thing you could imagine.

    Here are the e-mail addresses of Illinois House representatives who made anti-2A / anti-gun votes recently, or people who voted P or NV - MINUS the hard core anti gunners (Acevedo, Cassidy, Currie, Zalewski, etc...) There probably are some hard core gun control politicians here as well as some who simply voted for political cover, but somewere in this list are the e-mails of the politicians that may be convinced to change their vote if enough pressure is brought to bear.

    We want to politely point out that magazine bans do nothing to curb violent crime and ask that they oppose any magazine ban or magazine capacity limit.

    House adjourned - meaning the antis figured out they didn't have the votes (yet) to push more gun control bills and didn't expose their amendments to defeat.

    There are more than a dozen anti-gun amendments and bills waiting in the wings, including 2 magazine bans.

    They'll try to regroup, see where money needs to be allocated and pressure applied, but this is very encouraging because they've been racking up losses on the gun issue since January.

    The only thing they have to show for it is support for some kind of provision prohibiting guns in places that primarily make their income from alcohol and a provision that would cause an automatic "may issue" hearing for people applying for CWP that have had 5 arrests (but not convictions).

    Rumor is that the desire for mag bans is actually coming from Chicago City Hall - it's something that Rahm Emanual wants to see happen.

    It looks like one thing that anti's will try today is pass legislation that would fine law-abiding gun owners $10,000 for allowing their FOID to expire.

    Considering that the ISP currently has an estimated 75,000 person backlog for fulfilling FOID applications, and it's taking anywhere from 90 to 150 days for people to get their FOID cards - this is just another attack on law-abiding gun owners.

    The ISRA is asking people to call their reps right away and ask them to oppose HB2265

    Don't think the FOID backlog isn't intentional. Imagine a future where they only get to a few hundred foid applications a year. Yes you have the legal right to own a gun...just have to apply and wait...years. eventually they'll increase the FOID fee to a prohibitive level. What a mess you all have there. At least you got concealed carry...sort of.

    I heard a rumor the NRA was contemplating suing the ISP for not processing FOID applications within the legal time limit. Anyone know if this is true?
