Our Second Amendment brothers and sisters in Illinois need our help badly.
Billionaire Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has made it his mission to ram through HB 5855 when the legislature returns for a “lame duck” session, January 4-10.
HB 5855 is one of the worst bills we’ve ever seen, on par with tyrannical gun grabs in California, New York, Maryland and Connecticut.
Here are the details about HB 5855:
*** BAN the sale and possession of semi-auto, centerfire and mag fed rifles;
*** BAN all magazines with more than 10 rounds;
*** Make it ILLEGAL to purchase or possess .50 caliber rifles and cartridges;
*** Increase the age to 21 of getting a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card needed to own or possess a firearm in Illinois;
*** Massive expansion of Illinois “Red Flag” gun confiscation orders from six months to twelve months;
*** New restrictions on hunters under the age of 21;
*** Registration and fee payment with the Illinois State Police of so-called “assault weapons”
The American Firearms Association is spending BIG on ads educating and mobilizing gun owners in Illinois to OPPOSE this dangerous legislation.
We’re asking all of our supporters across America to make a special contribution of $17.76, $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help push back and DEFEAT this assault on our Second Amendment brothers and sisters in Illinois.
