I am sympathetic but an assault weapon is not a farmer or rancher owned shotgun or rifle. There are more reps in Spfld from the area between I-80 and the Wisconsin border than there are from the rest of the state. The City of Chicago does not need children with assult weapons on the streets, and neither does the rest of the state, for that matter.

I was raised in a rural area with rifles, shotguns and handguns in a house with responsible adults. They are not talking about the same thing in Chicago.

Well they already have a ban in Chicago, Hows that working out????

Chicago needs concealed carry more than anywhere I can think of...

Their soft on crime in Chicago, they need to start putting these people away

I totally disagree with you, this bill would ban all of the most popular guns out there...

It just harms law abiding people and the thugs arent gonna follow the law anyway...

If this passes even more good people will be getting out of this state...

The silly "assault ammunition" ban would outlaw 12 gauge shotguns...

Ain't no local Barney Fife gonna arrest no old man for killin a wolf in the middle of his 1000 acres or for shootin a fox in his hen house. And you ain't gonna disarm the hunters in SoIL. What are they gonna use at the new shooting range the state built down there? Rocks?

It's a Chicago issue. Moved.

i appreciate most of your contributions here but this one has me a bit puzzled. do you really think kids are currently able legally purchase assault rifles in the state?

i have yet to have anyone explain to me how a person is more dead after being shot with a gun that has an different shape than a conventional rifle. dead is dead. since assault rifle does not mean automatic rifle, these kinds of bills are always simply a way of acting like their doing something about crime. each trigger pull = one bullet with an "assault" rifle or a conventional rifle. who cares what the stock looks like.

i don't own a gun but i do have my FOID. i'll likely start the process of owning one soon. it's ridiculous that chicago makes me take classes (good idea) but won't allow any ranges in the city. and makes we wait months for a permit. and charges me a yearly registration fee.

Also most people are extremely misinformed about what the AWB really covered. It was a joke. AN AR-15, as an example, was still allowed, they just couldn't possess such features as an adjustable stock, bayonet lug or flash suppressor. But the gun itself was allowed. It was BS feel good legislation. The laws as they stand now are fine, is nor still overly restrictive. The last thing that is needed are more useless "bans".
