Illinois trying to pass state Licencing bill!

Chuck you may know of this already. SB-1657 It already passed the state house of representatives of Illinois. From what I have read on Guns of America I sure hope it does not make it through the Illinois state senate. Not just for Illinois but the rest of the states that try to get similar laws passed. Well it is passed my bedtime I will catch you after the sun is up.
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hopefully it wont pass.

SB 1657 creates an onerous gun dealer licensing scheme within the state. While the purported intent of this legislation was to enhance “responsible business practices,” this proposed legislation only proves that the intention is to close as many federally licensed firearm dealers (FFLs) as possible. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) licenses and closely monitors all FFLs and strictly enforces any infringement of federal law. SB 1657 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 being priced out of business.

As a member of the "Illinois Rifle Association" and the "NRA" I am well aware of it. We've been fighting it from the start, they want to do away with all of the Mom and Pop shops and the FFL's dealing out of their houses. If this makes it into law it will in no way effect the big dealers like Cabela's and Bass Pro the purpose is to put the small guy out of business. The bill passed in the Senate last month and moved to the house. Its status is currently "Referred to Rules Committee." I have enough calls into my state representatives office that she sent me a small hand written note thanking me for the support (she a R and pro gun). Our governor Bruce Rauner (R) is also pro gun but he's buried in a sea of Democrats and it's about impossible for him to get anything done.

Bruce Rauner maybe the governor of Illinois but everybody knows that Michael Madigan is the puppet master of that state and he's as crooked as they come...

You just hit the nail on the head, here's a good report on him.

The man behind the fiscal fiasco in Illinois.
