    ISRA Urgent Alert:
    CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL LAUNCHES NEW ATTACK ON YOUR RIGHTS

    On Thursday, February 9th, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called for the Illinois General Assembly to pass a $65 per handgun fee to be levied against every law-abiding gun owner in Illinois – INCLUDING YOU. Of course, gang bangers, murderers, robbers and rapists are exempt from the fee. This fee would be charged every 5 years on every handgun you own. Additionally, you would have to register with the government in the same manner as sex-offenders.

    WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU

    If Rahm Emanuel’s gun tax passes, you will be required to pack up your handguns and take them to the local police station for examination and registration. If you have 10 handguns to bring in, you’ll walk out paying $650 in taxes. If you own 100 handguns, the government will lighten your wallet to the tune of $6,500. And, you’ll have to repeat this process every 5 years – unless Emanuel and his buddies in the legislature bump this up to an ANNUAL FEE.

    WHAT IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THE TAX?

    If you cannot pay the $65 tax on EACH of your handguns, you will have to surrender your guns to the local police for destruction.

    WHAT IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO PAY THE TAX?

    If you decide not to pay the tax, the police will come to your house and take your guns away. They will also arrest you and charge you with a CLASS 2 FELONY.

    WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP STOP THIS HANDGUN TAX IN ITS TRACKS? ...
