Political Action Needed!

A friend of mine fowarded this email to me:

From: IL State Rifle Association
To: List Member
Subject: URGENT ALERT: Daley Gun Ban On the Move
Date: Thu, 19 Feb 2004 05:46:25 -0800

The 2004 Daley "Assault Weapons" ban has been assigned a hearing date before the Illinois Senate Judiciary Committee.

Senate Bill 2561 will be debated before the committee on Tuesday, February 24, 2004 at 3:30 PM.

If SB2561 is passed, most, if not all semiautomatic rifles and shotguns will be banned and you will have 90 days to surrender your guns to the police or be subject to forced confiscation procedures.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO SAVE YOUR GUNS:

1. Call the following Senators and thank them nicely for their past support of the right to keep and bear arms. Tell them that you are against SB2561 and that you would like them to vote against it when it comes before the Judiciary Committee

- Sen. Clayborne (217) 782-5399

- Sen. Haine (217) 782-5247

- Sen. Petka (217) 782-0422

- Sen. Roskam (217) 782-8022

- Sen. Winkel (217) 782-2507

- Sen. Dillard (217) 782-8148

2. Call the following Senators and politely tell them that you OPPOSE ANY GUN BANS and that you would like them to vote against SB2561 when it comes before the Judiciary Committee.

- Sen. Cullerton (217) 782-7260

- Sen. Harmon (217) 782-8176

- Sen. Obama (217) 782-5338

- Sen. Silverstein (217) 782-5500

Remember to be polite.

3. Call your own Illinois State Senator and tell him or her that you are opposed to SB2561 and that you would like them to vote against the bill if it reaches the Senate floor. If you do not know who your Senator is, go to this web site: http://www.legis.state.il.us/ and click on the "legislator lookup" link in the lower right hand corner of that web page. From there, follow the directions and your Senator will be listed.

4. Please pass this message along immediately to your gun owning friends and ask them to make the same phone calls.

5. Please post this message to any and all Internet bulletin boards to which you may belong.

Don't delay...make those calls now!

As it states, this email came from the IL NRA

It only takes a few minutes of your time to save your constitutional right here in the wonderful Republik of Illinois. I don't even own a gun and the fact that such a bill has been proposed pisses me off

I just fired off emails to all of them.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

That's what we need. The most effective method is a written letter, but email is better than nothing



When one reads into it, Anything .50 caliber or greater (includng shotguns and antique muzzle-loading rifles/muskets) would be illegal and have to be surrendered to police to be destroyed. Virtually all semi-automatic rifles would be too.

It isn't our society that views guns like that, it is our state, and moreso the city of Chicago

I think a vast majority of society share the same thoughts about guns as Chicago. They just dont have an avenue to act upon it the way the Daley does.
