Anyone see this yet? Am I wrong in thinking that this is effectively an OK for a SBR in Illinois if you meet the requirements?

Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
720 ILCS 5/1-3 from Ch. 38, par. 1-3

Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Makes a technical change in a Section concerning the applicability of the common law.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
720 ILCS 5/1-3
Adds reference to:
720 ILCS 5/24-2

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Changes the exemption from the unlawful use of weapons statute and the aggravated unlawful use of a weapon statute for military re-enacting. Provides that the exemption applies to a person possessing a rifle with a barrel or barrels less than 16 inches in length if: (A) the person has been issued a Curios and Relics license from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; or (B) the person is an active member of a bona fide, nationally recognized military re-enacting group and the modification is required and necessary to accurately portray the weapon for historical re-enactment purposes; the re-enactor is in possession of a valid and current re-enacting group membership credential; and the overall length of the weapon as modified is not less than 26 inches. Retains provision that during transportation, any such weapon shall be broken down in a non-functioning state, or not immediately accessible.


So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

In addition to the NFA requirements these two classes of Illinois residents could legally posses a legally registered SBR.

So unless you fall under the exempt personel you are still not eligible
