SB1007 goes to the house
thebaron writes
Why do Illinois legislators ignore legal gun owners? We are not sure but a conversation we had with a downstate “conservative” representative may give an insight. We talked with this representative personally about issues from citizens’ gun rights to punitive taxation. Our interviewee seemed informed and sympathetic to our concerns. He further stated that he opposed legislation increasing taxes and restriction of gun rights. We have even gone shooting with this representative so we know he is not just giving us lip service. However, when pressed about what he would do beyond just voting “no” on these restrictions he said “What can I do?” We pointed out ARTICLE 1 of the Illinois constitution, SECTION 22. RIGHT TO ARMS Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. (Source: Illinois Constitution.)

Again our representative replied “What can I do? I am just like you. The powers in Springfield want what they want. I can’t stop it.” His office assistant added during a follow-up contact. “If you think this is bad, just wait ‘till they take away your guns.”
Are you outraged yet? We are. Why do those we put into office ignore us? Because they can. The powers that be spend more time and money making themselves heard than we do. To them it is a religion. All aspects of society must be engineered and controlled. Gun owners get in the way of that. It is time for all of us to be more loud and more active than the social engineers that prowl politics. Start with Senate Bill 1007 (SB1007). We raised our voice in the Senate but it went through anyway. It is now in the House. Use the link below to track and find out about the progress of this bill. Locate your representatives and send them multiple CIVIL communications with your opposition. Use email, phone, and fax. Be brief and persistent. Every voice counts. It’s time to take back our rights.

The reason Illinois politicians, especially in cook county, ignore gun rights advocates is because there is a large amount of people that feel wholeheartedly that "guns are evil devices and their symbol represents death". Until that attitude is changed, firearms and guns will always be attacked in Illinois.

Federal Firearms Laws Fraud Revealed

The Federal Government has no constitutional authority to regulate firearms.  How then have all these federal laws been passed and enforced?  What about all the new laws that are always hanging over the heads of tens of millions of peaceful gun owners?


Sadly, you will only find it here.  Encourage other pro-gun organizations to copy and post this information!!!
