Democrats in the Illinois Senate have failed to gain enough support for legislation that would have outlawed 50 percent of long guns on the market in the state and would have confiscated weapons owned by citizens.

On Wednesday, we reported that Illinois Senate President John Cullerton planned to introduce a draconian bill that would have effectively banned all modern firearms, criminalized their owners, and subjected their guns to confiscation by the Illinois State Police.

“Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns,” the Illinois State Rifle Association reported. “Pump action shotguns would be banned as well. This would be a very comprehensive ban that would include not only so-called ‘assault weapons’ but also such classics as M1 Garands and 1911-based pistols. There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering. You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.”

In addition to outlawing a large number of firearms, the legislation would have targeted shooting ranges in the state.

Following the failure today, Democrats pledged to reintroduce legislation outlawing the Second Amendment. “We will take some time to work on these important issues to advance them in the near future,” Cullerton’s press secretary, Rikeesha Phelon, told reporters.

Illinois governor Pat Quinn has indicated he will push for outlawing semiautomatic weapons this Spring.

    Why are people posting made up stories? Really. I loved to come here to get the news they didn’t share or make up on CNN or FOX, but now this website has become nothing more than the National Enquirer.

    What was inaccurate about the post?

  • Dickie

    There was nothing inaccurate about this article. If you click on the link ‘John Cullerton’ it will take you to the supporting article. Why would someone even say that when there was nothing about this article ‘made up’

    LDG should change it to “Libtard Bimbo”.

  • Geez

    I read the bill. They were grandfathering in assault weapons and had to be registered with the Illinois state police at $10 per rifle but banned all future sales of AR type rifles. It was not banning all shotguns either.

  • They failed for a short time, probably only because a corporation was not cut in.
