...IF you live in Illinois.
In light of threats to ban 50 caliber rifles expressed by US Congressman Rod Blagojevich, Concealed Carry, Inc. announced today that it would serve as the transferring dealer, at no cost, for any citizen wishing to bring a 50 caliber Rifle into Illinois.
“First it was the so-called assault weapons, then ‘pocket rockets’ and now 50 caliber rifles that Blagojevich is intent on banning. It’s clear his agenda is to ban guns one class at a time until there are no guns left.” said Concealed Carry, Inc. President, John Birch.
“Our response is simple, anyone transferring a 50 caliber rifle into Illinois may use Concealed Carry, Inc. as the transferring dealer at no charge,” Birch continued, “Typically the charge to transfer a rifle is 10% of the purchase price, in the case of a 50 caliber that adds up to $500. $500 that can be used help defeat Blagojevich in his bid for governor.”
When asked if .50 Caliber rifles represented a threat to society, Birch simply scoffed. “If Blagojevich thinks a .50 Caliber can stop a tank, I’ll loan him one and he can stand in front of an M1 Abrams and see what happens. It won’t be pretty when that tank turns him into a grease spot. Blagojevich is simply using the deaths of innocents on 9-11 as an excuse to further his radical gun control agenda.”
“Blagojevich has never served a day in uniform and has no idea what he’s talking about when it comes to guns. The constant theme Blagojevich keeps coming back to is that these guns could be used to assassinate political figures. Well so can a truck bomb, Boeing 757 or anthrax in the mail. The common man is more worried about his personal safety than some political hacks. Politicians like Blagojevich seem bent on disarming citizens while surrounding themselves with bullet proof limousines and heavily armed personal protection details. Mr. Blagojevich's hypocrisy is transparent and this man is not fit for public office.” Birch concluded.
Concealed Carry, Inc. will transfer 50 caliber rifles at no charge for as long as the law allows. The only requirement is that the citizen possesses a valid Firearm Owner’s ID card and passes the Illinois State Police check.
