    Looking at it here from Virginia, of course it has a chance. The individuals who are going to introduce this legislation show nothing but contempt for the rights of free men. If this goes through it will be a path to confiscation of private property. Time to have a recall election on these people and do what the Democratic party tries to do every time they don't get their way...except the tantrum throwing, name calling and attempting to silence the opposition parts.
    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." Thomas Jefferson (quoting Cesare Beccaria)

    That would be the 'lame duck Legislature"

    Illinois Dems vote to penalize gun owners

    Democrats in the Illinois State Senate seem determined to demonstrate to the entire nation why the Democrats are known as the “party of gun control” with the passage in committee Wednesday of two extremist measures that could outlaw a majority of firearms in the state.

    Any word on this?

    My understanding is that the House committee members, as well as all the house members are so fed up with having there fax machines run out of paper, there voice mail boxes full for the last week, there email accounts overrunning that they where shaken and pull the plug on the bill.

    I followed the story and am glad to no end that it didn't pass. Now if only we can get a victory at the federal level.

    We overwelmed them, and they didn't like it. They will come back harder the next time. Now we need to fill the voicemail boxes, run there secretaries ragged, run there fax machines out of paper at the federal level, and then they may get the message.

    I agree. Just because you (Illinois residents) have them down now doesn't mean that they won't get back up and fight later. Like my daddy use to say, "beat the f**k out of them while you have them down."

    I'm just glad that is over. Now we get to see what Chicago spews forth in the 98th General Assembly.

    This is Truth! You did well Illinois. Randy is correct, running them ragged is just a way to say "do your job, legislator"
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    I wouldn't be so worried about the newly seated legislators as the old anti-gun, anti-freedom legislators. They need to worry about getting a concealed carry bill through the legislature in less than 109 days (by 7th Circuit Federal Court ruling) or there will be carry on a Firearm Owners ID (FOID) card that should include open carry and not just of handguns. The shall issue concealed carry bill HB997 already has 47 sponsors, in about 3 weeks. Will the antis come up with more garbage gun legislation? Probably so, and it will go nowhere.

    Come March 6 probably 8000 or more gun owners will decend on the Illinois capital for Gun Owners Lobby Day!
