Illinois Gun Dealers Under Legislative Attack

Here’s the latest anti-gun “end-around” being attempted in the state of Illinois. From the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action website Monday:

Last week, state Representative Kathleen Willis filed House Amendment 8 to House Bill 1016, another anti-gun amendment that seeks to over-regulate gun dealers and impose restrictions that could potentially force gun stores to close. House Bill 1016 has been sent to the House floor and could be considered at any time. Your NRA-ILA continues to outright oppose House Bill 1016 and any anti-gun amendment proposed. Please continue to contact your state Representative and politely urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1016.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) licenses and closely monitors all FFLs and strictly enforces any violations of federal law. HB 1016 goes far beyond federal law in its mandatory regulations and red tape imposed at the state level that it would almost assuredly force the closure of most firearm dealers, and prevent prospective owners from opening new ones. This legislation seeks to create so many department divisions, anti-gun 5-member licensing boards, and licensing fees that dealers would be forced to close through oversight by anti-gun appointees or would be priced out of business…

The NRA-ILA offers opponents of HB 1016 a way to take action via their website here.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel And Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy Call For More Gun ‘Control’

The first anniversary of the Newtown, Connecticut, shootings is right around the corner, and supporters of gun “control” are becoming increasingly vocal about their desire for more restrictions. Not surprisingly, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police Department Superintendent Garry McCarthy chimed in yesterday with their calls for more gun “control” while celebrating the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, or “Brady Bill,” which was signed into law on November 30, 1993, and required background checks be conducted on individuals before a firearm can be purchased from a federally-licensed dealer. C. Hayes wrote on Chicago’s WGN TV website Thursday:

Mayor Emanuel, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, and the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, and the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence mark the upcoming, 20th anniversary of an historic gun law while also pushing for even tougher gun rules in Chicago

At Thursday’s gathering, the leaders said the explosion of the internet has undermined the law. They point out up to 40 percent of firearms sales are through the internet between private parties

“While gun shows were around, they weren’t really conceived of in the way that they are today for purchases and moving of guns,” said Emanuel.

(Editor’s noted: Italics added for emphasis)

CPD Superintendent McCarthy had this to say about the group’s desire for universal background checks:

I think some people wrongly believe that requiring background checks will have no impact on criminals and will only create a system that impacts the good citizens who comply with the law. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Speaking of “the truth,” back on March 21, 2013, FactCheck.org looked into the line that “40 percent of guns are purchased without a background check.” Here’s what they found:

That figure is based on an analysis of a nearly two-decade-old survey of less than 300 people that essentially asked participants whether they thought the guns they had acquired- and not necessarily purchased- came from a federally licensed dealer. And one of the authors of the report often cited as a source for the claim — Philip Cook of Duke University — told our friends at Politifact.com that he has “no idea” whether the “very old number” applies today or not.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Ironically, a number of FactCheck.org’s critics claim the fact-checking project is actually liberal-leaning, not unbiased as many might think.

Too funny.

Jesse Jackson Calls For July 16 March On Gun Shops

Last weekend, African-American civil rights activist and Baptist minister Jesse Jackson, Sr., held a pre-recall vote rally up in Racine, Wisconsin. At the gathering, Reverend Jackson called for a nationwide march on gun stores this summer:

So on July 16, we’re going to be marching on gun shops- around the country.

Jackson, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984 and 1988, said this of the planned march:

When you are fighting a war to protect democracy from the insurgents, the first thing you do is to stop the gun trail that’s bringing the guns to kill the people.
