Illinois Senate committee approves bans on assault weapons, large clips


SPRINGFIELD, IL - Over the objections of gun-rights advocates, bills banning assault weapons and large-capacity magazines were approved by an Illinois Senate committee Wednesday night and sent to the full chamber.
House Bill 1263 bans the possession and sale of semi-automatic assault weapons, andHouse Bill 815 bans the possession and sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines.
Both bills are in response to the December school shootings in Connecticut.
“These military-style weapons have no use in our cities,” said Colleen Daley, executive director of the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence.
Todd Vandermyde, a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, said he believes the assault weapons bill goes too far.
“This will ban every semi-automatic handgun that accepts a magazine,” he said.
Jay Keller, executive director of the Illinois Firearms Manufacturer’s Association, said some weapons banned by the bill “are pistols or shotguns purchased by the average homeowner or the average hunter.” He also said the ban would cause some of the nearly 60 gun manufacturers located in Illinois to move to other states.
The bill was approved, but with no support from Republicans on the committee.
Vandermyde said the bill to outlaw large-capacity magazines runs afoul of previous court decisions.
The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Dan Kotowski, D-Park Ridge, said the concerns were overstated.
“If you are a law-abiding gun owner, I don’t know what you have to fear here,” Kotowski said.

Thanks park ridge pussy Kotowski. I hope a bunch of section 8 opens up in your cozy little town. In reading the bill it doesn't read to me that semi handguns are outlawed unless the magazine size goes over 10. Am I reading this thing right ?

Really?! How about the gangbanging niggers that kicked off 500+ murders in a city WITH a gun ban??!
Does this jagoff even know what's been going on here or even live in Illinois?!

Call your Illinois State Senator and Representative and tell them to vote no.

it (the handgun) has to be under 50oz too....and not be "capable" of accepting a magazine over 10 rds.

Good luck finding such a semi-auto.

VOTE Kotowski out. Pass an ordinance that he and his family must move out of Park Ridge. Burn his house down and salt the ground so nothing ever grows there.

Fuck this "law". It will be overturned in the courts.

"“This will ban every semi-automatic handgun that accepts a magazine,” he said"

Then there is no way in hell every semi auto is an 'assault weapon'. The logic of the bill is not self sustaining.

Bitch! Show me one civilian AR-15 that has a selector switch to get to three round burst or full auto!

Semi Auto is NOT an assault weapon just like the clip and the mag are fucking different!

"Illinois assault weapons ban passes committee, state Senate likely to vote before weekend"

It is NOT the law yet... This overreach should and will die in the Senate.

Even Dems are not all that retarded! I hope....

The committee can go back to circle jerking themselves!

Except if you just want to keep your 'dangerous' semi auto Glock or 1911 pistol for lawful useage!

Then you need to fear the government. BTW... I will jump into the old V for Vendetta moment:

“People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.”

While I'd like neither the government nor the citizen body to need fear each other, if this is either/or: Let the bureaucrats and hacks FEAR ME!

Come and take em boys!

In other words they will 'allow' us the privilege to keeping useless guns or we can get fictional guns that don't exist in the real world since no one makes neutered weapons of those sort. Can I keep my Moonraker Space Laser Ray Gun too? I think the bill says yes!!!

This is like a technology based law written by lobbyists who don't know the tech they seek to regulate. This is a gun bill written by zealots who don't know the basic facts about firearms and their functions nor operations.

How does punishing lawful gun owners halt outlaw nigger violence again? The bill cannot explain this!

Glock list the approximate loaded weight of their pistols as:
G-22: 34.38oz. G-23: 31.03oz. G-27: 26.98oz.

FUCK THEM I HAVE ALL SIZES!

That is a poorly worded law...

If is law is worded in a sloppy manner that means it is not enforceable and is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

Abe Lincoln would be shitting himself if here were alive to day. What sloppy lawmaking!

Part 1
The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess and carry firearms.[1]
In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions officially establishing this interpretation. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[1][2] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[3] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

What do Legislators do when they are faced with cutting Entitlements? Raise taxes on the working class so their voting base can enjoy their Government sponsored free lifestyle. Whereas, their only duty to maintain their free lifestyle ( Section 8 housing vouchers, Link Card, education, free medical, dental, vision, cable TV, The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program that pays for Natural gas in the winter and Electricity in the summer for Air Conditioning) is vote or (pay to play).
With the explosive murder rate in Cook County, the 7th highest in the United States, Legislators are again going after the law abiding, working, and tax paying citizens who lawfully possess firearms to appear that they are trying to combat the murder rate. This is a sham only to further the Dictatorial Socialistic Agenda of the Obama administration where all firearms would be confiscated. Isn’t it ironic that they very body of Legislators in Illinois (the government) who swore to support (to uphold or defend as valid or right) the constitution of The State of Illinois and The Constitution of United States of America is taking the first step by way of House Bill 815 and House Bill 1263 in stripping us of our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. A law created so the government does not become more powerful than the people.
I am not a Rhodes Scholar but I do know how to cut the number of Homicides in half in Cook County. Farm out all the Cook County Judges and States Attorneys to Lake, McHenery, Kane, Dupage and Will Counties and bring the Judges and States Attorneys from these counties to Cook. Our neighboring county Dupage, did not experience 1 Homicide all of last year because the States Attorney prosecutes the law to the fullest extent allowable and the Judges sentence the convicted to the fullest extent of the law. The judges from Dupage and the surrounding counties also do not let violent criminals back out on bond only to create more harm or possibly death. This alone, I believe, would cut the number of Homicides by 20%.

Joe said...

Part 2
So in closing Mr/Mrs Illinois Legislator, start conducting judicial reviews to ensure that judges are following sentencing guidelines and bail guidelines. Start looking at the way things are done in Dupage County.
Start a legislative movement for truth in sentencing so offenders do 85% of their sentence instead of the brief “time out” that they are given in Cook County. If that is not enough of a deterrent start looking at tougher sentences for your voters. If you need to build more prisons then build them instead of closing them or selling them to the federal government. Also get a study going that tracks the violent crimes committed by all the prisoners released early by Governor Quinn.
Is it possibly that the legislators, the governor, Mayor Emmanuel, Eric Holder and president Obama are trying to push the carnage (murders and shootings) to an all-time high, sacrificing the countless murder and shooting victims and the pain and hardship inflicted on their families to further their agenda, the abolishment of the second amendment? It is time that you start representing the people that pay your salary rather than the people who make Cook County deadlier than Afghanistan.
Remember also, you opened the gates to all the nut houses in Illinois recently so you may want to reconsider that move given that the majority of people that have been involved in the recent mass shootings all have some degree of mental illness.
I know it’s tough but here’s a novel idea. You’ve heard the old saying Idle time or Idle Hands are the Devils Workshop, or to put it in the words of an inmate “Staying busy is how we fight off the penitentiary blues and keep our demons in check”. How about telling the Hundreds of thousands of Entitlement/Welfare Recipient Idle Hands that they have to report for work. If they can’t find a job on their own in the private sector then they can perform jobs that The State of Illinois/ County of Cook or City of Chicago had to slash from the budget in order to keep receiving their Entitlements. Just imagine all those idle hands that would not have time for hangin in da hood selling dope, smokin a blunt, making teenage babies, shooting up the corner, smoking the rock pipe, drinking a 40, robbing iPhones on Michigan Ave, looting stores or raping defenseless women (your typical hood behavior, murder and acts of savagery), hopefully the picture is becoming clearer. Reinstitute the truancy law and if they refuse to go to school put them in the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center, commonly referred to as the “Audy Home where they would be forced to attend classes to get that GED. See what’s happening here, you are starting to demand some sort of responsibility of everyone, something that is sorely lacking in their society. You are also removing victims from the streets and before you know it Ohio and Trumbull (big dope spot where at any given time of the day there are 10 to 15 people buying or selling dope) will look like Dupage County where there is no one on the streets because they are either in school, participating in a school sponsored activity, doing homework or working.
Once you have accomplished all of the above and our murder rate is equivalent to that of Dupage County all will be well. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Now go off and get to the real work of making our state a safer place to live and stop treading on me and my Constitutional Rights and concentrate on the irresponsible vermin that created this crisis.

They did it with an idea and a dream but it cost gallons of blood.

Will we learn from our history and God or will we deliberately walk into the oblivious dark ages again?

This time it will lead us defenceless into the apocalypse if we abandon the Lord.
It matters not whether we are purloined to pick the apple or share the fruit.

The Godless have no love nor will they have peace as they persecute us. However, those who live by the sword shall die my the sword.

I have lived by the swords all my life, God forgive me?

I am no longer of this world full of regrets and evil.

I shall follow the lord's sweet quiet voice with his choice of a sword or a plow shear for all that remains is eternity and I will lay this life down gladly for my Lord and his children.

Save us oh Lord! I truly miss my friends and family that are with you, whom I prey for.

May you all find peace and love through the almighty!

What we gun owners have to fear Sen. Dan is that your plan is to completely ban ALL guns in Illinois. If this bill passes and survives courts challenges then your next step will be to take away every legally owned gun in this state from good decent citizens. So fuck you Liberal Communist cunt. We will keep our guns no matter what.

Park Ridge is a hypocritical town, so many of the patents there are fucked up. Dad is working and mom is getting plowed by her landscaper. The kids are a waste of oxygen. The white girls are all doing drugs and going to parties in the city. Once they are there they think its cool to let Lamar bang them. They take coal pole every weekend thinking its the cool thing to do. It's all cool til you end up with a Milky Way baby. It's no big deal because your liberal patents will support you 100% while Lamar cuts out. That town is a fucking waste. Everyone in it sucks.

First of all this piece of bullshit bill is UNCONSTTTIONAL.Federal law trumps the state and it's piss poor politicians. If they want the perfect world without guns then they will have to fight for it.They have no idea what can happen if this law was ever past.No gun owner is going to sit by and let anyone take our weapons.These liberal idiots are not thinking of the consequenses of such action.This is not a threat ,but you people bettr have your heads on a swivel, there are people out there that can and will be pushed over the edge if it becomes law.I beleive it's a very dangerous situation to put yourselves in,also the police who would have to enforce an illegal bill.Wake up!

You got that right. If you can't get it done with 6 shots just call in the Marines. People think the police are everywhere and can help them the moment some shitbag confronts them. Well police can't be everywhere, especially when the Dems purposely cut their numbers instead of massively increasing them. Crime is way up, police strength is way down. Kind of makes sense right ?

Cullerton and MADIGAN know full well the consequences. They probably have a huge list of family and friends they could hirs as a special police force to try and confiscate.more people who are behold in to them for votes. The idiot in Park Ridge is just a stooge for them.
