Illinois update - kind of

(1/3) > >>

Last November I created a post in the legislative section (linked below in my signature) to encourage IL folks to write their state reps and tell them that airguns should not be regulated as firearms.  I don't know about anyone else, but I have been emailing representatives - both in and out of my district- on this account, about monthly. 

Today I actually got a response from Senator Sam McCann which said, in part,

Regarding the email(s) about airguns, I agree with you wholeheartedly.
My son and I are enthusiasts, as well.

I will draft legislation for the spring.

Please stay in touch.

So I would again encourage the IL airgun enthusiasts, let's do what he asks and stay in touch with our reps. A lot!

Two edged sword, my friends.  We all know it depends on the airgun in question.

Us folks here in VA recently had our laws changed for the worse because a member here raised a stink and he doesn't even live in VA.  C'est la vie, right?

I'm just glad that airguns in some states are becoming more recognized as a legit tool for hunting.  Having a rep or senator that actually engages in the sport is NOT a bad thing :D  So good luck on ya- hopefully the legislation coming forth this Spring will make you all smile
