Calls from Gun Owners Overwhelm the Illinois State House – Legislators Back Down from Vote on Semiautomatic Firearms and Magazine Ban for Now

Last night, anti-gun legislators in the Illinois House were scheduled to vote on an amendment to Senate Bill 2899 which would have turned this bill into a semiautomatic firearms/magazine ban and registration scheme (previously reported by NRA-ILA here).  However, in a large part thanks to your telephone calls and e-mail messages, the Illinois House decided that it would not vote on the anti-gun amendment to SB 2899, and did not even hear this amendment in committee.   The announcement of this decision was made by state Representative Elaine Nekritz, Chairman of the House committee where this bill had been sent.  To view this announcement, please click here – she says it herself — your calls and e-mails made a difference!
