Dishonesty, thy name is Brady..

The Brady's are pushing for a magazine ban and universal background checks in Illinois. Here's the Magazine ban bill:

Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Makes a technical change in a Section concerning the sexual exploitation of children.

Wait,that has nothing to do w/ firearm magazines. But the amendment does:

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
720 ILCS 5/11-9.1
Adds reference to:
720 ILCS 5/24-1.8 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that beginning 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act, it is unlawful for any person within this State to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell, purchase, or possess or cause to be manufactured, delivered, sold, purchased, or possessed a large capacity ammunition feeding device. Provides that these provisions do not apply to a person who possessed a prohibited weapon, device, or attachment before the effective date of this amendatory Act. Provides that on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act, such person may transfer such device only to an heir, an individual residing in another state maintaining that device in another state, or a dealer licensed as a federal firearms dealer. Specifies penalties for violations. Provides exemptions. Provides that the provisions of the Act are severable. Effective immediately.

So good ol' Sen Kotowski, the same man who was caught lying to the legislature about .50 cal rifles is still trying to push a bill under false colors.

The second bill is they typical "force people to use FFL's that we're trying to sue and legislate out of existence" garbage.

Does anyone think that it's a coincidence that these bills, promoted and endorsed by Daley puppets, are coming up for votes at the same time another puppet is busing Chicago highschoolers to lobby for them?
