Illinois State Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D-Fascist) has introduced HB4715, which provides, among other things:
***every person in Illinois must register each firearm owned with state officials
***a person shall not purchase or possess ammunition within Illinois without first having obtained a registration certificate identifying a firearm that is suitable for use with that ammunition
***background checks for registration certification
***Class 2 felony to sell firearm without complying with Firearms Registration Act.
And much, much more!
So far this is only a bill and I’m pretty sure the QC contingent of Democrats will vote against it, if need be, but so what? As long as Democrats control all levers of power in Illinois, this sort of thing will continue to be a threat to 2nd Amendment rights. So what if Jacobs and Verschoore have an A rating from NRA—they’re Democrats and as such continue to give the leftwing wacko Chicago Democrats the majority and the power to push this wacky stuff through—just like they did with tax increases, ssm marriage and a whole host of leftwing policy issues.
Vote for Anderson over Jacobs; Wozniak over Smiddy and Candidate X over Verschoore—the only cure to this madness is for more GOPers to get elected and take over at least one part of Illinois government.
Until then, this sort of thing will always be hanging over the heads of law abiding Illinoisians.
One gun manufacturer has already left the area and another is on the way to Iowa—don’t allow the Democrats to kill even more jobs in the QCs.
