    Chicago is stalling pension reform and risking bankruptcy of the damn STATE to push their assault weapons / high capacity magazine ban.

    (They were TWO votes shy of getting this passed Yesterday; now that the Chicago Machine has started serious arm twisting, holding the bankruptcy of the state as a trump card, we are VERY MUCH IN DANGER of seeing this go through.)

    Here in Georgia our representatives have told us that 7 phone calls is huge -- 1 to 2 is typical. Reps pay attention, and it doesn't take much to help your elected officials understand the importance of a bill to their constituency.

    Make the call. Take the time. let them know.

    Every yes vote here in this PDF basically represents the anti-gun vote in Illinois

    I don't have a more precise list w/ contact info, this PDF is a roll call for an anti-gun amendment.

    If you just want to e-mail the Illinois General Assembly:

    Sent to every rep on that list:

    As a Federally licensed Collector of Curio and Relics of War, I strongly urge you to vote NO on any magazine ban/assault weapons ban.

    You are about to vote on legislation which will make the vast majority of my several-hundred-thousand-dollar firearms collection ILLEGAL to possess, including rare relics which the National Firearms Museum does not even have on display.

    I am a father of five, a business owner, an employer, and a corporate and individual taxpayer in Illinois. I do business across the United States with Fortune 500 companies.

    You are messing with MY heritage, and the rightful heritage of my CHILDREN.

    This will not be tolerated.

    If you pass legislation that will turn me in to a felon, I WILL MOVE my company out of Illinois - and take all of our tax revenue with us.

    In addition, I will be keeping track of every “YES” vote on these bills, so I can donate (generously) to your opposition in 2014.

    Trenton XXXXXXXXX

    Jeanne is great, she is my rep and I'm going to make a campaign donation as soon as I have ime.

    Her comments on the floor yesterday were great:

    "A magazine ban is offensive to women"

    This is what I sent:

    I received the same reply from Jeane Ives as Trent did..to include his last name, they must be flooded with email.

    This is the reply I received from Mike Bost:

    Four emails bounced as undeliverable and one mailbox full notice.

    Reply from Kay Hatcher:

    Yeah when she started speaking, my wife perked up and then was pretty much cheering by the end.

    Got the same letter back from Hatcher as Jeff did.

    Thank you for contacting me regarding gun legislation in Illinois.
    I have always been a proponent of the Second Amendment, and will
    continue to be.
    Sincerely,

    Kay Hatcher
    State Representative - District 50

    Whoa, they're starting out doing VOICE votes today.

    "In the opinion of the chair the Ayes have it"

    (Pension amendments)

    No electronic votes today?!?!!

    THAT crap won't fly when they get to gun stuff.

    Hoping the deluge of calls and e-mails today deterred them from pushing this forward. The democratic caucus ran over by 45 minutes or so. When pushed for an explanation when the house reconvened, the speaker said "We had a lot going on."

    Hourly update, so far they're sticking to non-critical stuff. Arguing about scholarships now.

    adjourned.

    We shook them up with the phone calls/e-mails today. They kicked around a couple minor bills and called it a day, after 1 hour.
