ISRA: 2nd Amendment Supporters Get a Win as Onerous FOID Card Legislation is Stalled

6/3/2019

Chatsworth, IL – The spring session has come to an end and 2nd Amendment supporters can breathe a sigh of relief as one of the most expansive gun control measures in recent history failed to win support in the Illinois Senate.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - May 30, 2019

The situation leading up to and including SB1966 and its various amendments that now become the bill has been deceitful and slimy to say the least.  SB1966 is an out and out attack on the Second Amendment and the private ownership of firearms. The excuse for filing SB1966 was the shooting that occurred in Aurora earlier this year.  Of course, in the end, SB1966 does nothing about that.

ISRA Legislative Alert - SB1966 as Amended

5/28/2019

Representative Kathleen Willis' rewrite of SB1966 , her "Fix the FOID Act" was not called today in the Illinois House (nor  tonight, they just adjourned...) because she did not have enough votes. The party is not over. Please keep calling your State Representatives.  The Spring legislative session is not scheduled to end until Friday at midnight. Anything can happen up until then.

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

by Richard Pearson

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!
