Now if we can get about 3000 of our closest friends... Agreed, i got a response from the Governor and idnr once that read that there test's hadn't show it was ethical to take a deer with a air rifle yet wth
Just like EVERYTHING else messed up (think another word here!) with how we live and do things ....In Illinois, for those that don't know, .17 is OK, but anything over .18 (.22 or .25) airgun, you have to have a FOID, and go through rings to get it shipped ..... Less than one hour away from Chicago, you can drive to IN or WI and buy high caliber high power rifles, without any complications??? or any gun for that matter!!!!What is wrong with this picture? Most of us (older) folk like the idea of plinking with an airgun. It's quiet, clean, inexpensive (to run NOT to buy) and excellent to clean out yard pests. HARD CORE CRIMINALS will NOT use an airgun to commit a crime!!! Even they are NOT THAT stupid!Mark (mobilmail) has a very nicely written .pdf letter to send out to congress reps, but I noticed only a handful of people have downloaded it! Now I know there are a lot of airgunners in IL, so are we just ignoring this issue, or just too lazy to do anything about it??Sorry about the rant .... just had to get it off my chest!Thank you
I have actually updated the letter to include some statistic references. I attached it to this post.I considered the fact that things could be made worse, but to sell out the rights of law abiding citizens without even trying seems gutless. One of the reasons I keep on is because I just can't see any reason based on actual truth or past events that should cause airguns to be so harshly regulated.
