This thing is presented as "A bill to provide for the implementation of a system of licensing for purchasers of certain firearms and for a record of sale system for those firearms, and for other purposes." That's right, the licensing of purchasers... They are proposing to license the exercise of a constitutionally documented personal right. Next thing you know, you're going to need a license to speak or a license to exercise your religion. That nifty license to exercise your right will end up costing you $25 per applicable gun, per year. When they say "certain firearms" they mean "any handgun; or any semiautomatic firearm that can accept any detachable ammunition feeding device". Beyond that it eliminates private sales of firearms and also requires that any firearm possessed is rendered absolutely useless for self defense purposes by means of a lock. You'll also notice that it kindly shields government officials and cops from any of the provisions of the bullshit bill.
Oh and one more thing... This applies to all guns owned prior to the enactment of the bill. So much for grandfather clauses.
This monstrosity is being forwarded by Illinois Representative Rush. All of my Illinois readers should show this prick their appreciation next time his name shows up on a ballot and vote his ass out of office. The rest of my readers need to make their displeasure over this hideous piece of legislation know to their elected officials. We will need to be extremely vigilant and fight very hard to preserve our rights over the term of the socialist domination of our political system. We all need to spring to action.
Obviously the libs are taking the election results as a mandate to unswerivngly pursue their radical socialist agenda. When are they going to learn, gun control legislation does nothing to curb crime? If you want to curb crime all you need to do is curb these ludicrous liberal social experiments.
