    I received this email today. Passing it along for shooters in Illinois.



    URGENT ALERT – YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    CULLERTON TO INTRODUCE NEAR TOTAL GUN BAN ON JANUARY 2ND

    The ISRA has learned from a credible source that Illinois Senate President John Cullerton will introduce a so called “assault weapons” ban on Wednesday when the legislature returns for its “lame duck” session. Cullerton hopes to ramrod the bill through and get it to Governor Quinn for signature by Friday. If he is successful at doing so, nearly every gun you currently own will be banned and will be subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police.

    Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Pump action shotguns would be banned as well. This would be a very comprehensive ban that would include not only so-called “assault weapons” but also such classics as M1 Garands and 1911-based pistols. There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering. You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.

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

    1. Beginning Wednesday, call your State Senator and politely tell him or her that you are a law abiding firearm owner and that you strongly oppose Cullerton’s gun ban. Also, be sure to call your State Representative as well and politely deliver the same message. If you do not know who your State Representative please call the Illinois State Board of Elections at 217-782-4141.

    2. Forward this alert to all your gun owning friends and family members. Be sure to tell them to call their senators and representatives as well.

    3. Post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards and blogs to which you belong.

    4. Join or renew your membership in the ISRA. Encourage your friends and family to join as well.

    The first rumble of a storm that was already brewing.

    I pity any legislator that supports it.

    Chicago for 2012 had 500 plus homicides. Chicago is plagued with violent gangs that commit 80% of homicides. 80% of the deaths are African American. Chicago has a huge drug problem. And from what I have read there police department has problems. I also viewed a video that said around ten thousand illegal guns were taken off the street last year. Chicago has huge problems. Obama is from Chicago. In my opinion this city needs the military not a ban on guns from law abiding citizens.

    Does this mean Model 12's, 870's, and 1100's will be banned from the Grand? I wonder what the ATA has to say about this?

    Those of you who advised we need to compromise, well here is your compromise - sporting shotguns to be banned.

    Pat yourselves on the back.
