Illinois Democrats start the New Year with gun control.
The Illinois Senate Democrats, using parliamentary sleight of hand and underhanded tactics, advance useless gun control. Yesterday the Illinois Senate released SB 337 from the “motion to reconsider”. This allows 30 calendar days for the Senate to certify it and send it to the governor for consideration. In releasing this bill to the desk of newly elected Governor J.B. Prtizker to sign, Illinois democrats are signaling Gun Control could be a priority for the new administration.
SB –337 named the Dealer’s Licensing Act is nothing more than a shallow attempt to use regulatory schemes to drive lawful Federally Licensed Firearms Dealers out of business through the addition of higher fees, onerous regulations and un-funded mandates.
All this in their quest to attempt to deprive Illinois residents of their second amendment rights, beginning with federally licensed sellers.
“Lawful firearms dealers are not the source of crime guns. This has been proven again, and again, and again. The only outcome from this sort of dealer licensing scheme is to further encumber legal businesses from serving their law-abiding customers.” – Roger Krahl, Director, FFL-IL
