Many have called the ISRA office regarding “bump stocks” and other such devices. These devices were approved by the BATFE under President Obama and Attorney General Holder. It is the Illinois State Rifle Association’s suggestion that the BATFE review their ruling, open up a comment period and re-address their ruling.

Many of you know that SB1657
- a bill to curtail retail firearm sales - passed the Illinois Senate last week
and now moves on to the Illinois House for concurrence. If SB1657 is
passed into law, here is what will happen:
Ranges 9, 10, and 11 are closed today due to significant rainfall.
expected SB0233 Amendment 1 to be heard today, but this bill has been
rescheduled for Thursday, April 27th at 11:30am. Remember that schedules can be changed at any
OPPOSE SB0233 Amendment 1
Witness slips and phone calls to your Illinois State
Senators are needed.
Senate Bill 0233 is a shell bill so Amendment 1 becomes the bill. Please note: the title of the bill is “Safety
Tech” but that no longer matters,
only the Amendment matters. SB0233
A1 makes it a civil rights violation if a local government DOES NOT license gun
dealers. This is a terrible bill in other respects as well so the whole
bill should be opposed.
Please call your State Senator immediately.
