It’s true. The Illinois Firearm Ban Act signed by Governor JB Pritzker on Jan. 10th covers a whole lot more than just America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15. It also covers the Ruger 10/22 and every other semi-auto rifle in the world. It also bans pretty much all semi-auto shotguns.
We’ve been fairly mum about the details about just how encompassing the new Illinois law has been written. But now we outline the flaws in an effort to educate Judge Stephen McGlynn from the Southern Illinois district of federal court.
Todd Vandermyde now reveals just some of the issues in a pair of YouTube videos from as many days.
I suspect he’s got more videos coming on how the ban also nabs many pump action shotguns in addition to the semi-autos.
And then there’s the matter of shortie shells in shotguns.
Yeah, it’s a hot mess.
But at least one YouTube gun guru thinks we’re on the right path. Four Boxes Diner (soap box, voter’s box, jury box and the cartridge box?) has this to say.
