The state of Illinois wants to ban magazines that have gun ads in them. Last time I checked, gun ads were in:

Shotgun News
Guns & Ammo.
American Handgunner
First Freedom (NRA)
American Rifleman (NRA)

I guess the NRA will be in a heap of shit because their magazines won't be able to be shipped to members in Illinois. The sponsors state that these magazines are a choice venue for criminals buying guns. Huh ?

This sounds like a 1st amendment problem here ??

If I end up having to drive to Wisconsin to buy a magazine, I'll be pissed. Maybe bringing the offending mags into IL, from out of state, will be a crime, also. If I end up doing jail time, I hope you guys will write me.
Just when you think it's safe to take a deep breath, new, even more whacko laws are being proposed.

I think I'm trapped in the dreaded "bizzaro world".

This is so blatelty anti-first amendment that I cant beleve that you are worried about it.

This is so against the spirit of the moment I doubt that it will even make it through you legislature- even though I know that Illinois is a Machine state and not a real democratic-republic as required by the 14th Amendment. Just look at this: www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=66788

Not to worry, ArmdLbrl, most of what I wrote was tongue in cheek. But I've lived my whole life in the Chicago suburbs, and I get to the point where absurdity begins to make me giddy. As it turns out, I started a thread with a link to that same Fox story, and then deleted it a minute later, when I saw someone had beat me to it.

You realize, of course, the ACLU is going to come to our defense. Talk about your mixed emotions....

Where does is say, the state of Illinois itself, wants the ban?




I saw this on NBC news. They were talking about how "easy" it is.
