IL Gov Quinn's New Gun Ban

Gov Quinn rewrote a pro-gun bill on mail order ammo to add an AWB.

From the ISRA:
 1. Ban the manufacture, possession or sale of nearly every semiautomatic rifle, pistol and shotgun you own.

2. Specifically ban Glock pistols since they share a common design with the Glock 18, a select fire handgun.

3. Require you to register every semiautomatic firearm and every magazine you own that exceeds 10 round capacity. The kicker is that, under Quinn's proposal, the State Police can charge you unlimited fees to register your guns. Thus if Quinn's bill passes, you could very well find yourself paying $100 or even $1,000 per firearm per year to comply with the law. Additionally, you could find yourself paying $50, $100 or even $500 per year for each "high capacity" magazine you own. Can't pay? Well then you would have to surrender your guns to the State Police for destruction.
F*ck no.   The only purposes of this is to make a polical statement and to try and restrict whatever he can. Along w/ the boilerplate AWB, likely provided by the gun control groups, is preceded by this piece of laughable material:
I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution– the right to bear arms.
 Which is why he's spent his entire career working w/ anti-gun advocates to ban everything from handguns to ammunition. And the usual double speak:
There is no place in the State of Illinois for weapons designed to rapidly fire at human targets at close range.
 Except for:
The ban would not pertain to law enforcement officials or members of the military.
So according to Quinn, it's perfectly acceptable for police or military to fire rapidly at human targets at close range.

Another POS politician who needs to be run out of office.

Guess the "good" Governor has never heard of being attacked by multiple targets.

How exactly did he get the magic number of 10? If I need 10 shots shame on you. If need 11, shame on me?

Sometimes I wonder if politicians don't purposely pass obscenely stupid ideas that would be tough to enforce and be a complete waste of tax payer dollars just for giggles. Just to see how far can they exert their authoritah.
