They are going for anything and everything they can and seeing what sticks. In typical scum-like fashion they're adding it as amendments to a sexual assault bill.

So, I was just being paranoid by believing anti's want to ban guns, right?
Listening to the Committee meeting audio, they're trying to compare legal gun ownership to illegal drugs and owning anti-aircraft missiles while trying to ban pump action shotguns. Still talking about '50 cal rifles' shooting down airplanes. They couldn't even recognize the difference between a firearm and a gun stock. "Did you get permission to bring in that weapon?" "This isn't a weapon, it's a stock."
Colleen Daley from the Joyce Puppet ICAHV gave the standard fabricated talking points including VPC generated statistics. Her money quote: "Banning these dangerous weapons is a good first step ..."
A 'Public Health' expert uses lots of statistics confusing 'homicide' and 'firearms' neglecting that Chicago has 5x the homicide rate of the rest of the state and the strictest gun laws.
Todd Vandermyde: "Firearm owners are being treated like sexual predators".
Sen. Kotowski: " I don't see what 'law-abiding' gun owners have to fear in this bill" (Yes, Kotowski is this stupid) He even admits that there's no way the ISP could implement the law w/ all the registrations required but 'We'll figure it out'.
But here's what it's all about. "We want the information"
They want to know were we live and what we own so they can come and get it when they decide to change the law again.
These people are ignorant pieces of shit. Both bills are heading to the floor. All the Chicago Dems (6) voted for it. The 4 token Repubs against.
