The democrats in Illinois have proposed more gun bans including magazine limits and bans on semi automatic center fire rifles. I am sure they are hoping to get a few more weak kneed republicans to go along with them this time due to recent events.

If you live in Illinois here is the link to the NRA-ILA take action page.

"Meanwhile, in Illinois, state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, filed a much broader gun-control package (House Bill 4107).

It’s basically a gun-control advocate’s wish-list: banning not just bump stocks, but also high-capacity magazines, .50-caliber rifles, and the sale of so-called assault weapons. (Currently owned semi-automatic rifles could be kept by their owners, but many would have to be registered with the Illinois State Police.)

These ideas have been introduced before, but failed to get enough support to pass.

An Illinois-based representative of the National Rifle Association declined to comment. Moylan and Davis did not respond to requests for comment."

I love across the river but shoot at a range near Rock Island. If the bill passed, I'd have to find another place to shoot my ARs.

I wish I could move to Iowa or Wisconsin, but I can't convince the S/O. Not that she loves it here, but at our ages it's tough to change.

I want to get out an am retired but wife plans on working another six years plus with her family around here I doubt it will ever happen. Our real estate values here just suck too and property taxes are high. Most the rest of the country are at all time highs for real estate while around here houses are still 15-20 percent below all time highs of 2007-2008 and are taking a long time to sell. Wife wants to put money into house for some remodeling but I told her why fix up a sinking ship.
