Rep. Kelly M. Cassidy
5533 North Broadway
Chicago, IL 60640
Cassidy's Bill is a "Registration" bill. Who thinks it is a pre-cursor to Confiscation? All together now, say, "I do."
Creates the Firearms Registration Act. Provides that every person in
the State must register each firearm he or she owns or possesses in
accordance with 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, or a receipt demonstrating that the person has
applied to register a suitable firearm under the Act and that the
application is pending. Provides that the Department of State Police must
complete a background check of any person who applies for: (1) a
registration certificate for a firearm that was lawfully owned or possessed
on the effective date of the Act, was brought into the State by a new
resident, or was acquired by operation of law upon the death of the former
owner; or (2) a renewal of a registration certificate unless, within 12
months of the date the renewal application is submitted, the applicant
passed a background check conducted by the Department in connection with
the applicant's acquisition of another firearm. Provides exceptions.
Amends the Criminal Code of 2012. Provides that it is a Class 2 felony to
sell or transfer ownership of a firearm to another person without complying
with the registration requirement of the Firearms Registration Act.
Now I could make a lot of snide comments about Cassidy after reading his legislative bio on the State website, but I won't. She is obviously a gun-hater. Is she anti-Second Amendment? Is she trying to destroy the Constitution and the United States from within? Does that make her an "enemy from within"?
She is an elected officeholder who should be dumped at the next election. The only way to dump her is for people in her district to get busy now and rally around a strong candidate to run against her.
You know? Maybe she's a nice person. Maybe she's just ignorant and unaware. She is obviously not "stupid". If she took the time to think through "Registration", she'd realize that when the Gestapo comes for guns, they know which houses to go to first.
If Illinois passes her Bill, there won't be anything left in my residence but the dust!
