Illinois Senate Bill 1657 Update

Illinois Senate Bill 1657, also known as the Gun Dealer Licensing Act, is scheduled to heard by the Judiciary-Criminal Committe next Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at 11:00 AM. This bill, if it becomes law will severely restrict rights of lawful citizens and will punish and regulate gun shops and gun smiths.  If you study this proposed law you will see that it is designed to eliminate gun stores in Illinois, and make criminals out of honest citizens, while it does nothing to stop criminals.

Go To This Link and fill out a Witness Slip opposing SB 1657. Anyone who is an Illinois resident, or travels through Illinois may fill out a Witness Slip.  Show the legislators that we do not want this law!  Call your Illinois Representative and tell them that they should vote against this bill if it goes to the floor.

We have over 4000 witness slips opposing the bill now; 3300 ahead of slips in favor. Facebook and some blogs are helping. Springfield has an ad that pops up when you open their page.
