FEET, FEEL THE FIRE: Illinois House Republican Leader urging support for magazine ban. CALL HIM NOW!

March 3, 2018


The Illinois House will return to session Tuesday.  Most troubling, House Minority Leader Jim Durkin is urging his fellow Republicans to support the bill to ban magazines.  Yes, Jim Durkin wants to send you to prison for 7 to 14 years for your Glock 17 magazines.  Or your AR magazines.  7 to 14 years in prison!  

And he's urging his fellow Republicans to vote for the bill – known as the "Bauer" Act – as well.  From the Sun-Times:

Sneed also hears House Republican Leader Jim Durkin is encouraging Republican members to support the Bauer Act.

"Leader" Jim Durkin needs to hear from gun owners.  Call his office Monday morning.  And again Tuesday, as the magazine ban bill may "be ready for a vote" as soon as Tuesday.  Tell the person answering that you are opposed to all of these gun control bills.  Tell them you're opposed to the magazine ban and how you would urge Mister Jim Durkin to urge the same with his fellow Republican caucus. 

When they ask you where you live, you tell them where you live and note that Mister Durkin (not "Representative", not "Lord", not "His Royal Highness" and surely not "the Honorable") is the Republican leader for the entire state of Illinois.  And we're watching him and will hold him accountable for his actions.

Indeed, lllinois' 2.25 million gun owners will be watching him very carefully.

Believe it or not, Jim Durkin wanted the endorsement of gun owners prior to this recent push for gun control.  Does he feel entitled to it?  Heya Jim, you gotta earn those endorsements, they aren't given away.  Right now, you're on your way to the uh, ahem, "brown" list.

What's more, Jim: Illinois Republicans – at all levels – may find political donations a lot harder to come by if the party's "leaders" persist on selling out their constituents on core values.

    Durkin, you and any other RHINO Republican push this magazine ban through will never get another dime of our money for your campaigns. This is an assault on our second amendment rights. The only people ever affected by the gun laws is the law abiding citizens. If you think for one minute this would have stopped any of the killings in CROOK County or anywhere else you are sadly mistaken. I am ashamed to live in the state of Illinois, sanctuary state, taxpayer funded abortions, no budget and an idiot for a governor.

      Stop the magazine ban, and stop infringing on our 2A rights!

    Mickey Straub is a conservative running against Durkin in the Republican primary on March 20.  Donate or volunteer for his campaign here:


    Change will not come without action.  Dump Durkin!

      There is no information on Strab's view of gun ownership on his web site. 

      JJ if you live in his district maybe you should contact him and have him make a statement on the issue.

    Will not receive another dime from me. Just another lying money grabbing politician. Time to send money to Mr.Straub.

    Mr Durbin if i might just look at the resent membership increase of the NRA and tell me gun rights are not an issue so take it as a warning that your voting constituents don't want more useless gun control

    So some kid  is allowed to shoot up a school in Florida and we the people  in Illinois must pay for it ? 

    Even the State fo Florida is talking gun control at this level.

      I hope you mean “is NOT” and if so you are correct.

      • george b on March 3, 2018 at 9:48 pm

        Yes I mean "NOT" 

        I did not catch the mistake 

        Thank You

    Anyone standing for gun rights nees to address the real problems such as the alledged perps using big pharma psycho drugs, crisis actors, drills in action, etc. As to blame the gun is wrong it's way past time to address the real b.s. behind these atrocities that are false flags to take away our rights.

    I'll be calling him Monday.  If he votes for the mag ban, I'll be writing his opponant a big, fat check.

    And I suspect I've probably written my last check to any incumbant Republican in IL or the Republican party of Illinois.  I've already cut off those shitbirds at the national level.

    Jim Durkin wanted an endorsement from gun owners?  Yeah, I wanna marry Ivanka Trump, too.  But it ain't gonna happen.

    Instead of banning certain rifles and magazines lets eliminate gun free zones since it looks like that is where the majority of the shootings happen. If you vote on this it will be a big f-you to us people who follow the laws. I guess from here on we might as well vote for Democrats. Nothing pisses off a republican more than another republican voting like a democrap. You won’t be any better than that trader Hammond. 

    • george b on March 3, 2018 at 9:52 pm

      Your idea makes sense. Joe Biden gave us the gun free zones and look how it has worked out.

      I swear the democrats like violence. They keep promoting it

    Any of these anti 2nd Admendment bills that you or any of your RINO colleges vote for, will meet with your unseating. WE THE PEOPLE, will make sure you are out of government. Remember that!

    Information is starting to get out.

    We need to network this information ourselves, share information to every gun owner you know.
