Here is the proposed bill to ban so called assault rifles in Illinois. http://www.legis.state.il.us/legisl...e=&SessionId=3&GA=93&DocTypeId=HB&DocNum=2632 Now, what are you going to do? Let's say the bill passes. Let's say you have a pre legal AR-15. Let's say you decide to keep it, and hide it away in your closet until you can move it with you when you retire (just a few years). What can they do? A record of purchase of the exact model exists only with my dealer and the Feds via the United States Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms firearms transaction record form. But Illinois only knows I bought a long gun on such and such a date vis-a-vis the State Police records check that I qualify to buy a firearm. So, Illinois does not know what kind of long guns I possess save some unworkable database cross check with the Feds. Am I off base on this one? Does the State of Illinois know exactly what guns I have purchased in Illinois? If they don't, why not keep your banned assault rifle? What are they going to do? Subpoena all of the gun dealers in Illinois' records. What probable cause? Are they going to Subpoena Federal records? Same answer. Are they going to come knocking on your door? Same answer. So I say keep your so called assault rifle hidden away until you can move out of state in a few years. Fellow THR members, is there a flaw in my logic?
