Does Anyone Trust The Legislative Process?

So, Senate Bill 1657, the Gun Dealer Licensing Act which is designed to run Illinois gun dealers out of business and to make criminals out of gun owners went to the House Judiciary Committee today for examination. There were many there to testify against it, including Springfield Arms and Rock River Arms.  Two individuals were allowed to speak. There were more than 10,000 Witness Slips filed opposing this bill to not quite 4,000 in favor, and the thirteen members voted 7 to 6 to send it to the House Floor for a vote.  If You Have Not Yet Called Your Representative, DO SO NOW!  I don't know when it will go to a vote, but it most certainly will.  Your Rep needs to hear your opinion!
