Cannabis and Your Second Amendment Rights

Cannabis and Your Second Amendment Rights

by Ed Sullivan, ISRA Lobbyist, former Illinois State Legislator

In the New Year there will be a bevy of new laws facing Illinois Citizens. One new law that Gun Owners should pay close attention to is PA 101-0027, the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act. This new law allows Illinois citizens over twenty-one the ability to purchase and consume cannabis recreationally. Illinois citizens have had the ability to purchase and consume cannabis for medical reasons for five years. There is a difference between the purchase and use of Medical Cannabis and Recreational Cannabis as it relates to your lawful rights to own and possess a firearm in Illinois.

Virginia Democrats Prefile SB 64 – Could Outlaw Firearms Training

Published in Conservative Firing Line

Democrats are having a free-for-all in Virginia after their big win this fall. Another ridiculous bill has been prefiled to be printed on January 8, 2020. SB 64 outlaws firearms training, and could impact other group sports such as Krav Maga, Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense training, etc. The bill is designed to prohibit paramilitary activity (read that “citizen militias”). But as it stands, it would do a lot more. And turn law abiding Virginians into felons with a snap of the handcuffs.
