Phone Calls Needed Immediately!

4/26/2017

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.
