Those so-called "inert" assault weapons of baby-killing mass destruction have always scared me, and "the children". I hope they do something for "the children". No, I don't know who's children yet.

They do way too many drugs in Washington.

I guess those little plastic "grenades" my boys still have from when they were younger would be a "no-no".

Have fake or "replica" rocket launchers been a big crime problem?

This is in Illinois after all.

They must be thinking ahead.

"Provides that it is unlawful for any person to purchase, possess, use, sell, give away, or otherwise transfer... items similar to weapons designed and manufactured for military purposes or replicas of those items."

This would mean AR-15s, or non-gun AR replicas, or air5oft versions. I love how they over-generalize when making these laws, in case maybe they forgot to include something.

Hell, THAT would ban a Ka-Bar.

Wow, that wording would ban AR-15s, or even airsoft type stuff. In IL, it'll probably pass.

Exactly. Bayonets, too. Can't even OWN them. Kinda makes the whole bayonet lug issue moot.

If this happens, I'd say that everyone will start hiding their stuff. The law wouldn't accomplish a thing, aside from open sale of such items.

They probably learned their lesson from the AWB.
My WAG is that from a legal standpoint they need to generalize in order to capture things in a broad sweep that they couldn't target directly. [anti-gunner]It's not a weapons ban, it's a militaria ban that happens to include weapons. We don't want to ban weapons, we just want to make it so that you can't own them.[/anti-gunner]

I wonder how broadly "similar" will be interpreted. Damn near anything can be described as similar to military weapons. Hell, a potato gun resembles a bazooka.

I'm sure it will pass...

I wonder about legislation like this.
No one is this stupid. At least no one who could reach high public office, right?
I have to wonder if it isn't part of a larger campaign.
A smoke screen, or red herring to distract from the real work.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 5:13:18 PM EDT
"Similar" could mean "similar in color," or "all guns that are black and scary-looking" or "any gun which has a round, cylindrical portion designed to discharge a projectile of death or other significant danger." To them, any black gun would look similar.

I wonder if it would include G.I. Joe weapons. They are similar in appearance.

No more "WAR TOYS".

But this can be construed as a backdoor AWB, too.

This is not good.

Ban replica bazookas?

Fuck Illinois
Fuck Rod Blagojevich and his communist, gun hating FOID rules
Fuck George Ryan and his crime friends. (hope he gets years of prison)
Fuck these stupid California wannabees who think Chicago is special.

Someone needs to assault every one of them with a pitchfork and dare them to
defend themselves.

I moved out of Illinois because it is Illinois. No other reason.

Link Posted: 1/25/2006 6:34:07 PM EDT
I wonder if this will allow them to outlaw spud guns.

They sure look like Bazookas to me.

Fucking retards.

Garands, M1As, M1 carbines, 1911s, actually it would ban most everything with a trigger and a BBL.

I don't think they would mind that much really. Being that IL is right in the middle of the US, they wouldn't need a military, and any taxes now payed to the feds by IL citizens would simply be diverted to fund IL .gov's pet projects.

I doubt their secession would make much of a difference really...

Honestly, I think it would be fun to watch the liberals try to create their own utopia without the pesky federal Constitution to block them. The real fun would be watching it implode on itself. The next question would be if what's left is worth reconquering.

No offense to those living in IL, just a thought exercise.
