Illinois: HB48 (handgun bill) Defeated in the House of Representatives!


www.nraila.org

On Wednesday, March 25, House Bill 48, was defeated on the House floor by a vote of 55 to 60, with one Representative voting present.

HB 48, introduced by anti-gun State Representative Harry Osterman (D-14), would have required virtually all private handgun transfers to be processed through a licensed firearm dealer, even those occurring between persons with state-issued Firearms Owner’s Identification (FOID) Cards.

Maybe a good thing Obama and crew are up in there and away from Illinois else the outcome would have been different(?).

The gun laws that I've read about in Illinois are so over the top it amazes me that that they represent one of the stars on our United States flag.

I thought that Ohio should be ejected into Canada for their voter registration fraud 60K people registered in a county of 45K people (or whatever it was (?)).

These gun laws proposals are getting way out of hand. What planet do those morons come from? Can we eject these so called 'law makers' back into deep space from whence they came?

Way to go on failing this bill.

HR48 = FAIL

The shame is that it nearly passed.... only 5 votes! Now we'll see what happens on the national level, nothing a few shooting in malls wouldn't solve for the gun grabbers!

Pretty close, too close, for normal people anyway.

For Illinois it's a landslide "against common sense"

Now, if they could only apply that vote to a moratorium on the introduction of further RIGHTS eroding gun legislation... for a period of say, forever.

Bills that would ease the controls already in place would be acceptable.

It's a good thing anytime any law gets thrown out against our 2nd Amend.
