Illinois Democrat Introduces Bill to Register All Firearms


The first step towards gun confiscation is gun registration and Democrats are hard at work on it in Illinois.

Guns

Another anti-gun bill mandating (this time) the registration of every firearm in the state of Illinois (plus permission slips to purchase ammunition) was introduced last month by self-proclaimed LGBT activist and progressive Democrat Kelly Cassidy. Representing state district 14, Cassidy’s bill is called simply: “Firearms Registration Act.” Cassidy’s goal is simple: She wants the Illinois State Police to know where every firearm in the state is, what its registration number is, who owns it, and where they live. From her bill:

Every person in the State must register each firearm he or she owns or possesses in according with the Act….

[The Act] provides that the Department of State Police must complete a background check of any person who applies for … a registration certificate for a firearm that was lawfully owned or possessed on the effective date of the Act….

[The Act] provides that it is a Class 2 felony to sell or transfer ownership of a firearm to another person without complying with the registration requirements of [the Act].

She also wants the police to know who’s buying and shooting ammunition:

[The Act] provides that a person shall not purchase or possess ammunition within this State without having first obtained a registration certificate identifying a firearm that is suitable for use with that ammunition.

Penalties for noncompliance are severe: A Class 2 felony in Illinois is three to seven years in jail, plus a fine not to exceed $200,000.

Anyone who wants you to register your guns with the state is doing so with the intention of confiscating them later and then having the state use force against you after your guns are gone. Want to stop them? Make any politician and party that starts talking about gun control pay a terrible price at the polls in November and you’ll find that they get reasonable in a hurry.
