We have learned that the Kathleen Willis FOID Card Bill (SB1966) is scheduled to be voted on in one of the upcoming Veto Sessions. The first Veto Session is scheduled for October 28, 29, and 30.  The second Veto Session is scheduled for November 12, 13 and 14.  There is enough time before either session for things to change, but there is very little time to get ready should the vote come in one of these sessions.   I encourage all firearm owners to attend every possible townhall meeting you possibly can this summer, fall and winter.  The same is true for every gun club meeting, gun show and wherever gun owners gather.  The fact is the fight is on and the antigunners are out for blood. In a Town Hall meeting held on Tuesday Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) was even willing to use the word “confiscation”. See Video

Today is the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.  Soldiers from the United States, Canada and Great Britain were engaged in the greatest waterborne invasion in history.  They were assaulting Hitler’s Atlantic Wall.  To give you an idea of what it involved to do the D-Day Operation, there were 11,590 aircraft, 6939 vessels, 132,715 allied troops, 196,700 sailors and 7,000,000 tons of supplies, including 450,000 tons of ammunition.  By June 11, the Allies had landed 326,537 troops, 54,186 vehicles and 104,428 tons of supplies.  The troops began the arduous and deadly job of pushing deeper and deeper in France, hedge row by hedge row.

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.

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!

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.

There are 14 days left in the Senate and 16 days left in the House of Representatives in this Legislative Session but there is still plenty of time for mayhem.  This Legislative Session has revealed the true intent of the anti-gun crowd to even the blindest of gun owners.  We have seen the introduction of a bill with universal ammunition taxes, the introduction of a ban that includes every type of semi-auto firearm including .22s, and a FOID card bill that would literally make it impossible for most people to have a FOID card.  In the past there were some gun owners who did not come to the defense of others gun owners because it did not affect them.  It has always been clear to many of us that everything is on the table and the anti-gun crowd wants it all.  Now it should be clear to all gun owners.  This is not an Illinois problem alone.  Cory Booker, Senator from New Jersey who is running for President, has even more outlandish proposals.

The National Rifle Association Annual Meeting (NRAAM) has concluded after a somewhat contentious members meeting.  Of course, the media is salivating at the idea of problems in the NRA.  Is the NRA perfect?  The answer is no, but then neither is any other organization.  The NRA is about a million times better than Congress, for example.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) maintains the JPFO Gun Confiscation Clock. The clock now shows 12 minutes to midnight, a loss of two minutes.  The reason for this is the introduction of H.R. 8 and HB 1112 in the United States House of Representatives.  Last week I referred to the anti-gun pushes in the traditionally pro-Second Amendment States.  This is what happens when gun owners take things for granted.

The Illinois General Assembly is on recess until April 30th.  There are only 21 Legislative days until adjournment.  This means that things may happen quickly in Springfield so everyone will have to be on high alert.

The Gun Sanctuary County movement which started in Effingham County, Illinois has now spread throughout the country.  In Washington State two more counties have declared themselves Gun Sanctuary Counties.  Here in Illinois, Carroll County has now joined the ranks of the resistance.  More are pending.
