Yesterday we broke the news that Illinois legislators are preparing to introduce what we’ve been calling the “Nuclear Option” of gun control legislation: a full ban and confiscation on semi-automatic firearms of all types and then some, plus a magazine ban. TTAG has just received the full text of the bills:
- Click here for a pdf of Illinois HB1263 banning semi-automatic rifles (and more).
- Click here for a pdf of the amendment Illinois HB0815 [page 11] that covers ammunition magazine registration.
