As every Illinois airgunner is painfully aware, our fair state considers every airgun over .18 caliber a firearm, along with all restrictions in purchase and transfer. This is beyond ludicrous, and I'm a bit tired of it. So I wrote a very specific letter to my representative, which I am attaching here.
I would encourage the other Illinois shooters to send a letter to their own representatives. I don't mind if you use all or part of mine, but obviously that isn't required. But please send something! This madness won't end if people don't speak up.
