Witness Slips Needed Now

10/19/2017

Action Alert
File Three Witness slips NOW for Tuesday, October 24.

These witness slips are needed now in response to three new anti-gun bills introduced into the Illinois House of Representatives for the Fall Veto Session which starts October 24.

HB4107 - Moylan - Semi-auto & .50 cal Ban, Aftermarket Trigger Ban  

This is a ban of your favorite semi-auto firearms, giving you a choice between confiscation now, or expensive registration of you and your firearms. Your normal capacity magazines will be banned.  Trigger modifications or aftermarket triggers will be interpreted as devices to increase rate of fire and will be banned.   

 

HB4112 - Drury - Bump Stock Ban, Aftermarket Trigger Ban

If you own a bump stock or an aftermarket trigger, trigger accessory or have made trigger modifications, they will be interpreted as devices to increase rate of fire and will be banned.   

 

HB4117 - Moylan - Tannerite Regulation, Aftermarket Trigger Ban  

If you own a bump stock or an aftermarket trigger, a trigger accessory or have made trigger modifications, they will be interpreted as devices to increase rate of fire and will be banned.  The bill will attempt to register sales of Tannerite to FOID card holders, through 10 years of records keeping.
