SB1640 Not Quite Dead…

The Deck is Stacked!

As you likely know, and as astutely pointed out in this piece from the Illinois Policy Institute, we are playing against a “stacked deck” here in Illinois when it comes to the General Assembly.  Making matters worse is the fact that 67% of the seats in the General Assembly are going uncontested this election year.  So that’s nice.

One Hope this Year

Last year, Senator Sam McCann filed SB1640, which would completely repeal the FOID Act.  The bill has only gained one co-sponsor in Senator Neil Anderson, before being pigeon holed into the Assignments Committee.

Here is where you come in!  This bill will die at the end of this two-year legislative session on May 31st, 2016!  We need to apply pressure to the chair of the Assignments Committee, Senator James Clayborne, Jr in order to get him to release the bill, so hopefully it can get a vote.

Sign the petition below to email Senator Clayborne!  After doing so, please share the petition on FB, and also email AND call your State Senator and urge them to cosponsor this bill.  (If you need contact information, comment below)

Release SB1640

Senator Clayborne,
