Illinois democrats are trying to ban semi automatic weapons AGAIN and new gun hating democrat governor will sign this legislation is passed which very well may happen since democrats have super majorities in state house and senate. If it passes you can keep what you have but it must be registered. If this passes we can be sure magazine bans are next. Note that SB107 would also ban folding stocks, grips, and handguards which means that they would not be sold in Illinois and no one will ship them to you PLUS it would be illegal to keep such "extra" parts that you already have! Better hope those parts on your rifle never get damaged.

Any Illinois resident that already possesses such an "assault" rifle and does not register it will be committing a FELONY. Any Illinois resident who possesses any "attachment", even if already owned, will be committing a FELONY. So possessing an extra AR-15 hand grip you bought a couple years ago would be a felony.

(1) A person who knowingly delivers, sells, purchases,
or possesses or causes to be delivered, sold, purchased, or
possessed an assault weapon in violation of this Section
commits a Class 3 felony for a first violation and a Class
2 felony for a second or subsequent violation or for the
possession or delivery of 2 or more of these weapons at the
same time.
(2) A person who knowingly delivers, sells, purchases,
or possesses or causes to be delivered, sold, purchased, or
possessed in violation of this Section an assault weapon
attachment commits a Class 4 felony for a first violation
and a Class 3 felony for a second or subsequent violation.

From NRA email:

Legislation has been introduced in the Illinois state Senate for a comprehensive ban on many types of firearms and accessories. Senate Bill 107 is currently in the Senate Assignments Committee awaiting a referral to a committee that will consider it. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 107. Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator.



Senate Bill 107, sponsored by Senator Julie Morrison (D-29), would brand many modern semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic handguns, and shotguns commonly owned by law-abiding citizens as “assault weapons” and ban them along with spare parts and accessories.

Some examples to be banned include:

Any semi-automatic rifle or handgun that can accept a detachable magazine greater than ten rounds in capacity and has one or more features, such as a protruding grip for the support hand; a folding, telescoping, or thumbhole stock; a handguard; or a muzzle brake or compensator.
Any semi-automatic shotgun that has one or more feature such as the ability to accept a detachable magazine; a folding, telescoping, or thumbhole stock; or a protruding grip for the support hand.
Any fixed magazine semi-automatic rifles or handguns greater than ten rounds in capacity and fixed magazine semi-automatic shotguns greater than five rounds in capacity.
Any shotgun with a revolving cylinder.
Any part or accessory that would configure a firearm as above.
Any firearm listed here by name or their duplicates.
These firearms are commonly owned by law-abiding citizens for various purposes such as self-defense, competitive shooting, recreational shooting, and hunting. The proscribed features simply allow shooters of many sizes and physical builds to safely control and operate firearms and do not fundamentally change the fact that semi-automatic firearms only fire one shot per action of the trigger. For example, telescoping stocks adjust the length of firearms to fit shooters of different statures and muzzle brakes and compensators reduce felt recoil, something that benefits all shooters. In addition to managing heat build-up, handguards also allow shooters to hold firearms in a way that does not negatively affect accuracy.

SB 107 would have limited exemptions, such as allowing those who lawfully own banned firearms prior to register and keep them. This exemption would not extend to banned parts and accessories, so owners would not be able to keep spare parts and accessories to reconfigure their firearms for different uses.

I realize that this is a sore subject with those who believe that they are pro-2nd, but the amendment has 27 words. The first 13 and not only misunderstood, but absolutely disparaged by the vast majority of those who think they are pro-2nd.
Advice to the people in Illinois, and other states for that matter. Start a movement to revitalize the constitutional Militia as the Framers recognized it. It will give you the authority to not only stop such infringements, but also allow you to prosecute anyone who attempts to do so.
