From my understanding the committee will be the easy part. They are pro gun thankfully. And that deadline is the 6th...

not so much it got sent to the rules committee not the agriculture and conservation. the rules committee is controlled by dems. not sure what they were thinking there but time will tell. they are saying the house is the hurdle as we have the support in the senate

The Rules Committee should send this back to the Ag Committee, because that's where the bill and the 1st amendment were first voted on. But this is Illinois, and screwier things have happened!

I programmed some Reps' phone numbers in my cellphone today. I plan on burnin' up some unused minutes in my cellphone plan this week! Hopefully they'll get the message.

Email sent..even though I am from Texas.

I also provided each and every one of them a link to Gun Facts - Gun Control | Facts | Debunk | Myths

Maybe the politicians will pull their heads out and realize laws only affect the law abiding!

It is postponed for consideration at a later date... 6 votes short of the 71. We call, we write, we call some more and we write some more... they still dont listen to us. I think its time to pick up and move out...

Yah... I wonder if a lawsuit would actually help. I know a lot of people are calling for it but that is a hard road.
