BUELLER? Is there any room for Gun Owners in the Illinois Democrat Party?

October 11, 2017


"There is no room for gun owners in the Illinois Democratic Party."

That certainly seems to be the case after progressive Democrat Marty Moylan introduced House Bill 4107.  And his fellow Illinois Democrats jumped on board as co-sponsors:

  10/5/2017 House Filed with the Clerk by Rep. Martin J. Moylan
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Michelle Mussman
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Sonya M. Harper
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Thaddeus Jones
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Anna Moeller
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Sara Feigenholtz
  10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Natalie A. Manley
  10/6/2017 House Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Mary E. Flowers
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. John C. D'Amico
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Elizabeth Hernandez
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Christian L. Mitchell
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Laura Fine
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Kelly M. Burke
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Fred Crespo
  10/6/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Frances Ann Hurley
  10/10/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Jaime M. Andrade, Jr.
  10/10/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Jonathan Carroll
  10/10/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Ann M. Williams
  10/10/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Melissa Conyears-Ervin
  10/10/2017 House Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Kathleen Willis
  10/10/2017 House Chief Co-Sponsor Changed to Rep. Kathleen Willis
  10/10/2017 House Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. André Thapedi
  10/10/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. La Shawn K. Ford

That bill would effectively ban all semi-automatic rifles that can accept a magazine, and shotguns that hold five or more rounds.  With shorty shells, that's pretty much all semi-automatic shotguns.  All .50 caliber rifles would also be banned, along with .50 caliber ammo.  And bump stocks and all trigger modifications and parts.  

Ah, but Marty the Magnamimous and his fellow Illinois Democrats will allow existing owners to keep their semi-auto rifles.  If they register themselves and their guns like sex offenders.  And keep the guns inside their homes.  The bill makes it a felony to leave your personal property with your registered gun(s).  Do so and go directly to Illinois prison.  Well, with the exception of a hunting trip or practice at the World Shooting Complex in Sparta, IL.

The bill also has a magazine ban on any magazine that holds 10+ rounds.  Keep two and go to prison for at least four years.  No grandfathering of existing magazines!

What's more, any gun with an adjustable trigger (as are common on many modern rifles), that's good for another four years in prison as a Class 2 felony.  If you even have PARTS to complete a trigger job, that's a Class 2 felony.  

Deeds trump words when it comes to recognizing gun rights.  There is no room for gun owners in the Illinois Democratic Party.  

What's more, in addition to all of the Illinois Democratic House and Senate members supporting gun control, every last one of the Democratic candidates for governor have called for more gun control.  It's almost as if they are trying to one-up one another in topping the others' radical anti-gun platforms.

There is no room for gun owners in the Democratic Party

    I guess shall not be infringed doesn't mean anything to our leaders. If you are not willing to uphold the 2nd amendment and will hide behind others it is  time for you to resign.  All of you disgust the citizens of Illinois.  

    Everyone of you down in Springfield need to ask yourself…. why are citizens leaving the state of Illinois? It's the poor performance from everyone "elected". You tax us to death and tax us more NOW you want to Destroy what our founding fathers created…. I thought we were in the USA not communist Russia. 

    If you allow this nonsense to pass I expect your resignation as well as you giving up your 1st amendment right to free speech.

    Seeing as how mass shooters/murderers, terrorists, criminals as well as ner-do-wells are democrats or democrat constituants perhaps we should just ban democrats and their mentally deficient constituants from owning firearms. Liberalism is definatly a mental disease that somehow has no remedy. They can't even responsibly use water pistols, or so say other liberals.

    Amazing how they want our support downstate, while treating us like sex offenders north of I80.

    By the way, they are not democratics they are democRATS although I think the correct spelling would more likely be democRAT-ick.

    To me, a bigger question to be asked of  'gun rights' Democrat reps and senators down state is why don't you think you are also part of the problem? You vote to keep Madigan, Cullerton, and the other grabber Assembly leaders in power. You 'leaders' live conservative but cast votes for some of the biggest progressives in the state.

    That bill is a real piece of garbage!    Such nebulous, undefined terms.  Trite use of terminology which has never been defined.   Hardly the proper way to write legislation.   —   And references to registration,  but NO specification of how/where/when this registration is to be made available, or even possible.

    What would this do to civiliam marksmanship matches? Back to flintlocks?

  8. anon on October 12, 2017 at 11:51 pm

    So will we be felons are revolutionaries if it passes?  I'm assuming nobody will bend a knee to this tyranny.

    Yep, the demon-rats of IL (and the entire USA) are traitors, pure and simple. Take an oath to uphold the Constitution and then they don't. More people will leave IL with their tax money as IL decends into a Chi-town cesspool. Soon enough IL will be even more broke that it is now.

    The Founding Fathers are not rolling over in their graves over Illinois House Bill 4107. They are coming out!
