Pity poor little old Governor J.B. Pritzker. He’s looking pretty darn impotent right now to his fan club nationwide in his quest to become the Democrat Party’s nominee for President. And no amount of little blue pills is gonna fix this problem. A mere eight-tenths of one percent of gun owners have registered their banned guns.
What’s more, while everyone expected the number of persons registering would grow with each passing month, quite the opposite is happening in the real world.
And now, at least one State Representative is publicly advising people not to register their banned self-defense firearms. Just as Guns Save Life has done.
(The Center Square) – Fewer than a tenth of a percent of the state’s Firearm Owners ID card holders have registered with Illinois State Police their semi-automatic firearms that are now banned by state law.
Of more than 2.4 million FOID card holders, the total for Week 3 of the registry shows 2,046 individuals have disclosed more 3,880 firearms, more than 2,100 accessories. There’s also been almost 40 ammunition disclosures. That’s 0.08% of FOID card holders, up from 0.07% the prior week and up from 0.04% for the first week
State Rep. Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, isn’t surprised by the low turnout.
“The folks that own guns in the state of Illinois know that this initiative is unconstitutional and I’ve been clear all along that noncompliance with something that is non-constitutional is an appropriate stance to take,” Wilhour told The Center Square.
There you have it.
