Illinois Senate Bill 947, which has been amended to revive parts of the
Daley Gun Show Ban, passed the State House of Representatives with exactly
60 votes, the minimum number required for passage. SB 947 would impose an
additional tax on all private transfers of firearms at gunshows. This
would do nothing to prevent violent crime, but instead would place greater
restrictions on law-abiding gun owners. SB 947 also requires background
checks at guns shows, and allows the state police to keep additional
records on firearms transferred at gunshows. This is the third time this
session that the House has considered gunshow legislation, and the
anti-gun leadership was finally able to strong arm a bill through that
Chamber. The bill now goes to the Senate for a concurrence vote. It is
critical that you contact your State Senator and urge them to oppose
Senate Bill 947. Please make this important call today!
