Illinois Senate Democrats Push Two Bills That Ban, Register ‘Assault Weapons,’ ‘High-Capacity’ Ammunition Magazines

Survival and Prosperity

“I urge the full Senate to follow the committee’s lead and quickly pass this important legislation.”

-Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, commenting on two gun “control” bills that passed out of the Illinois Senate Public Health Committee tonight, setting the stage for a possible floor vote Thursday

Here’s the latest on the gun and “high-capacity” ammunition magazine bansexpected to be pushed through by Democrats in the “lame duck” session (January 2-9) of the Illinois General Assembly. From the Associated Press this evening:

Illinois Senate Democrats who want assault-weapon restrictions will split the issue into separate votes on high-capacity ammunition clips and the guns themselves.

Democratic Sen. Dan Kotowski (koh-TOW’-skee) of Park Ridge told The Associated Press he intends to press legislation to limit ammunition magazines to ten or fewer rounds…

Chicago Democratic Sen. Tony Munoz is expected to sponsor the second bill banning assault weapons “designed for war.”

Uh-oh. As I was typing this the following hit the newswires. From the Associated Press a short time ago:

An Illinois Senate committee, in a party-line vote, has approved restrictions on semiautomatic assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips.

One measure would ban the sale of semiautomatic handguns and rifles. People who currently own such weapons could keep them, but would have to register them.

The second proposal would limit ammunition magazines to 10 or fewer rounds.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Semi-automatic rifle and handgun ban?

Gun registration?

That’s what the AP is reporting.

Barnini Chakraborty noted on the FOX News site today:

The state Senate got back to work Wednesday. The House plans to return Monday. Both legislative bodies are working against a Jan. 9 deadline — when the state’s new General Assembly will be sworn-in.

That being the case, looks for Illinois Democrats to try and make the proposed gun and magazines bans- and gun registry- the law in Illinois by a week from today.

    This may fly in the peoples republic of Chicago IL, but good luck getting this passed in Texas, Florida or about 18 other states.

        I used to say that about Illinois. Unfortunately watching the way they pounded this down our throats, as much as we fought and elected pro gun politicians, I expect to see other states follow suit like a bunch of dominos.
        I just can’t figure out who is behind this and what threats or promises are being made.
        The future does not look good.

    “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World

    People in the PROC, or Peoples Republic of Chicongo fit this profile to a perfect T. Those of us outside the PROC, must remember the old saying, first they came for the /%$7, and I did not speak out, and then they came for me. A infringement on any Americans rights will eventually come our way, as they slowly chip away at our Constitution, and Bill of Rights. We must stand together…period..

    Assault weapons are already registered and most likely already banned in Illinois. Michigan and a few other states are on the only states where one can purchase an Assault rifle. You must first go through a background check, get permission from the ATF after a siz month investigation, get permissino and documents from your local sheriff, the ATF can visit you without notice at anytime without warning, etc, etc. Assault rifles have a switch to turn them from semi-auto to burst or full auto. What the Illinois, govt is calling assault rifles is NOT assualt rifles, they are simply semi-automatic rifles. This is an attempt to disarm you so that they may later commit genocide against the citizens of Illinois and or otherwise supress any resistance you may have to their tyranny. Resist, with your life, DO NOT Turn them in.

    They keep pushing (these bills) and eventually people are going to push back.

    Not holding my breath, though.
