Here’s the bill they’re going to run with.

SB-2226  House Amendment #2

Here’s a very quick and dirty summary:

  • Don’t need mom or dad’s approval under 21 for a FOID if you’re in the IL National Guard
  • Red flag plenary orders from 6 months to 12 months in duration
  • One year renewal on red flag orders
  • Ban on sale, purchase, possession of modern sporting rifles, popular self-defense shotguns and quite a few defensive handguns.    Class 3 felony for the first one, Class 2 for subsequent guns.  And those of you who have a .50 cartridge… that’s a Class A misdemeanor.
  • Ban on .50 calibers.
  • Ban on magazines over 12 rounds.  LOL.  90 days to get rid of your mags.  $1000 fine for the first mag, Class 4 felony for 2+.
  • Gun registration and FOID endorsement for existing owners of forbidden firearms

    1. It’s not about compliance. It’s about turning you into a criminal. They know you have a foid. They know you own guns. They know you didn’t register them. They’ll raid your house with SWAT teams, to charge you with class 2 and 3 felonies, when you dissent.

  1. There should be a way to punish lawmakers that knowing pass unconstitutional laws. They are wasting taxpayer money creating this garbage bill, and wasting more money forcing a court challenge to kill it.
