BREAKING: IL Rep. Acevedo’s Assault Weapons Ban Amendment

Because gun grabbers never sleep, Illinois Representative Edward Acevedo just filed an amendment establishing an “assault weapons” ban to an otherwise innocuous bill (SB-2899) titled the Probation and Probation Officers Act. The text of Rep Acevedo’s amendment is here. Oh, and it’s not just an AWB. It includes registration of existing firearms, too. And hi cap magazines. The privilege for which Illinois gun owners will have to pay. That’s right, LOLers, you’ll have to plunk down cash to register each item. Separately. Think of it as a gun and magazine ownership tax. Because that’s what it is. Read it and weep.
