On Friday, the ISRA sounded the alarm to its members, warning of enforcement of the new Illinois Firearms Ban Act on Monday, April 10th.  The email, with the subject line “Important Legislative Update,” came with an interesting closing line.  

“Please share with others and remind them that the ISRA is they leader in supporting our 2nd Amendment rights.”

Yes, you need to think long and hard before carrying a prohibited gun on public property coming Monday.  

Here’s the law.

From page 106.

(c) Except as provided in subsections (d), (e), and (f),
and beginning 90 days after the effective date of this
amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly, it is unlawful
to knowingly possess a large capacity ammunition feeding

But you would also think “the leader” in supporting our 2nd Amendment rights would also mention the magazine capacity limits in the law that take effect Monday morning as well.

One would also think “the leader” would also apprise gun owners of the potential legal consequences if the bill is enforced as written.

And the relevant section from page 105 of the file at the link above..

“Large capacity ammunition feeding device” means:
(1) a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar
device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily
restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of
ammunition for long guns and more than 15 rounds of
ammunition for handguns;

(emphasis added).

Ditto for things like the Remington 870, the Mossberg 590, or the Winchester 1300.

Or pretty much any semi-auto shotgun.  Or even 10/22s.

Or magazines with removable baseplates.



Please share with others and remind them that the ISRA is the leader in supporting our 2nd Amendment rights.

The ISRA is “the leader” in supporting 2nd Amendment rights?  I’m not even going to take the bait and talk about what “the leader” would do about the FOID Modernization or Veterans relinquishing their gun rights for at least five years for a $300 tax credit.

Now, I’m not going to write that GSL is “the leader” in supporting our 2A rights.  Why?  Because we don’t have the incredible reputation, resources and experience that the National Rifle Association (and more importantly, the NRA-ILA) has.  We don’t have the members that the NRA has either.

If any organization is “the leader” in Illinois, it’s the NRA, head and shoulders above anyone else.

  1. It seems that “the leader” is trying to lead the “anti-gun” crowd on how to infringe in incremental steps, and like the “anti-gunners” spread partial truths, not the whole facts. Leadership is as leadership does, in other watch what ISRA does, as well as what they say (or don’t say).

  2. WTAF? NRA … Negotiating our Rights Away.


    Buy another suit for Wayne if you want, but they gave up on IL a long time ago, even before they dropped the Todd. Will never see another dime from me.

    SAF, GSL, any of the organizations Todd recommends. A pox on both Richard and Wayne’s organizations.

    1. I no longer contribute to NRA, and I say that as a long-time NRA Benefactor member. Because of Grifter Wayne, my dollars go to GOA and SAF these days. When NRA gets back to the business of not paying for Wayne’s mani-pedis and fanny buffs, I will get back to contributing money to them. As to ISRA, I was warned off of them LONG ago as being a waste of money. We don’t WANT compromise in any way – we expect the Constitution to be followed.

  3. “The leader” also negotiated the FOIDcard for us 50some years ago. Foid modernization? Compared to the FOID, that is nothing

  4. Somehow Wayne’s suit is far less important to me than the assumption by ISRA that they are the arbiter of every gun owner’s civil rights in Illinois. The arrogance of “the seat at the table” mentality has put us in our position today. And all we really get from them is fund raising and late information. I’d rather pay for Wayne’s cocktails at a Capitol Hill party with a congressman than to put up with the nothing we get out of Dick.

  5. If the claim is a leader akin to our state and country’s current leadership the ISRA is on point! Selling out for a seat at the table while taking Illinoisian’s dollars for little ROI. Sure, as Clint Smith says about .380ACP; if I had room up my rump for a tugboat I would not have the ISRA !
