Well guys after the Navistar shooting where every government check failed to stop a convicted felon from killing some people, the geniuses in Springfield decided that they need more laws. This AW ban is bad. It also bans parts to convert Non-AW to AW. These thing is so bad it doesn't even sound legal (what about no post ex facto laws)? Well here is is read it and weep, I am. I will be calling my state rep and doing everything I can to prevent this bill from even coming to a vote. P.S. if you are a member of the ISRA please vote for the Vision Team for the Board of the ISRA!

I sent emails to State Senators & US Senators & the Lt. Gov. yesterday asking their opinions on this matter. So far I have only heard from 1 State Senator & here is his reply :
"Thank you for your email in opposition to Senator Emil Jones legislative proposal. I have always supported gun owners rights and opposed efforts for more gun control. I share your opinion that his legislative package will not deter criminals, only reduce the freedom of law abiding citizens."

"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted
and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do
these things to other people and I require
the same from them."
Dang! I'd have about 100 violations. Maybe more.
Is it possible to pass a law against submitting stupid laws?
