Legislative Advisory - May 24, 2019

5/24/2019

The Illinois House of Representatives will not be in session on Saturday (tomorrow) but will return on Sunday at 4:00pm.  There has been a new amendment filed on SB1966.  This Amendment reduces the cost of the FOID from $50 for five years to $20 for five years.  The rest of the onerous provisions, such as fingerprinting and forcing private transfers through FFLs, still remain.  We are vehemently opposed to this entire bill.  I expect this new amendment to go to Committee immediately on Sunday afternoon.  If this bill makes it through Committee, it will be on the House floor very quickly.  Be prepared to file witness slips opposing this new amendment.  As I write this, the amendment has not yet been posted to Committee.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - May 23, 2019

On Tuesday, May 21st, the anti-gunners’ dream bill SB1966 HCA1 passed out of the House Judicial Committee and is on the order of Second Reading in the House of Representatives.   If this bill passes the House it only has to go to the Illinois Senate for Concurrence.   There will be no hearings, just a vote. While this bill claims to fix the Aurora problem, it does not.  The shooter in Aurora had lied twice on federal government forms, as well as state forms.  Each lie carried a perjury charge, he possessed a firearm illegally and no one did anything.  The problem, we are told, is that the Illinois State Police (ISP) does not have enough resources.  Really!

It is critical that you call your State Representative now and urge that they not support this bill, SB1966, as amended, in a floor vote.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - May 16, 2019

by Richard Pearson

On May 16, 1945, President Harry S. Truman made the decision to go forward with an attack on Japan using an atomic bomb.  Two months later a plutonium based atomic bomb was successfully tested near Alamogordo, New Mexico.  This was known as the Trinity Test.  The United States developed two types of bombs, a uranium based bomb and a plutonium based bomb.  Scientists were sure the uranium based bomb would work but they were unsure about the plutonium based bomb because little was known about plutonium, a trace element found in uranium.  The plutonium core was about the size of a grapefruit but much more powerful.  The project name for the development of the atomic bomb was the Manhattan Project.  The cost was two billion dollars, about what the government pays for a toilet seat today.
