Illinois Senators were poised to vote today on two bills that aimed to trample on your individual rights by###imposing sweeping semi-automatic and magazine bans, requiring registration of firearms and magazines, and crippling shooting ranges through onerous restrictions.### However, thanks to your timely action and the volume of telephone calls to state legislators in Springfield, the Senate leadership###decided to postpone its votes on these issues. These legislative threats have not yet been defeated and can still be voted on as early as Tuesday, January 8 when the Senate reconvenes for the last two days of its lame duck session.######In order to defeat these assaults on your constitutional rights as law-abiding citizens,###it is critical that you contact your state Senator IMMEDIATELY to express your opposition to House Bills 815 and 1263 and any additional anti-gun amendments.######If you own a semi-automatic firearm or detachable magazine, under the proposed legislation they may be banned, taxed and registered, and you could easily become a felon unless you act NOW!
