IL Repubs Play Games on Mag Ban

From Todd Vandermyde, IL NRA lobbyist:
Going into yesterday's hearing we knew we would lose as it is the Exec committee. And we knew the Sandy Hook parents would add an emotional element to it.
What we didn't know was that some republicans were looking to throw us under the bus. We have heard from some that the party needs to moderate in order to be competitive in Illinois. That to some, means going weak on the second amendment issue.
Two of those RINO's were Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno and Sen. Matt Murphy who, from what I've been told,  voted for the ban in committee.  

No. I don't think so.

The ONE major issue that they can actually sell to political moderates and "liberals." We'll literally overthrow a leader who wants to let people get married even if they don't have his idea of the optimal ratio of plugs to sockets, because that's somehow a winner, but gun rights are only making huge cultural inroads in traditionally Democrat/left areas, especially Chicago, so obviously we have to purge ourselves of that.

Frustrating, GOP. You have a tendency to be frustrating. You give up on my gun rights, you've lost your last tenuous hold on me as even a prospective voter.

So if SB 1002 passes in a full floor vote in the Senate, can the House deadline for 3rd reading of Senate bills be moved back?

If not, I feel pretty good about this, because I don't see it passing the Senate AND getting pushed all the way through the House before the adjournment Friday.
