    May 15, 2007 - Urgent Action Alert - SB1007 Magazine & Gun Ban

    This is an Urgent Action Alert on SB1007, a bill sponsored in the Illinois Senate by career anti-gun Senator Dan Kotowski (D - Park Ridge) and Republican Senator John Millner from Bloomingdale. This bill would ban commonly available magazines for many firearms that hold more than 10 rounds, and would also ban many firearms with tubular magazines that more than 10 rounds, such as ever action rifles owned by cowboy action shooters and many shotguns. This bill does nothing to reduce crime and would penalize law-abiding gun owners in Illinois.

    This bill passed the Illinois Senate last week on a 31 to 26 vote. It's now in the House Executive Committee and could pass out from that committee onto the floor of the House.

    It's important that you to help make sure that this bill gets defeated in the Illinois House, as Governor Blagojevich would cheerfully sign it immediately if it ever crossed his desk.

    Do your part by taking the following actions:

    Call your Representative and urge him or her to not support this bill, SB1007, to vote no on it should it come up for a vote. Even if you have received assurances in the past from your representative in the past that he or she is in your corner and supports the second amendment, do not neglect making that call on this bill.
    The ISRA webmaster and the ISRA staff in Chatsworth have fielded many calls and emails from angry and surprised gun owners whose Senators voted for this bill last week.

    Make a personal visit to your representative's local office in your district to show your support for the Second Amendment. Bring family members or a shooting buddy with you when you go. Leave a personal message for your representative urging the defeat of SB1007.

    Call the Springfield (217-782-3696) and district office (847-566-5115) of Illinois Representative Ed Sullivan, Jr. (R - Mundelein) and urge that he withdraw as Chief Co-Sponsor of this punitive legislation. Never mind that he's not in your district, his direct advocacy of this ban impacts all Illinois gun owners.
    Please forward this alert to all bulletin boards.

    If you are not a member of the ISRA, please join. Please get a friend to join.

    ISRA is now supported by three lobbyists in Springfield. Please consider making a legislative donation to the ISRA.

    Webmaster's notes:
    Need the phone numbers for your Representative and the address of the district office? Here's a listing. Need to find out who your Legislators are? Check the Illinois Election Board.

    Many concerned members wrote in to ask how their Senator voted on SB1007, perhaps many more are now wondering. The Illinois General Assembly website has the tally of all roll call votes in PDF files. Click here for the Senate vote on SB1007.
