Massive new gun ban for Illinois could be voted on as early as today

Today and tomorrow, and also next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the Illinois legislature is in veto session, and could vote on Quinn's veto any time (with the Senate expected to do so first). State Senator Dave Luechtefeld (R), the sponsor of the bill, hopes to override the veto. That is not out of the realm of possibility, because it was passed with well over the three fifths majority needed for the override. On the other hand, some of those who voted for the original bill are, as mentioned, anti-gun Democrats, who will likely lack the moral courage to defy the will of the governor (the will of the people--the legislators' bosses--is, of course, of far less concern to them).

Still, Illinois residents should call their state senators as soon as possible, and urge a vote to override this blatant attack on the constitutions of both the state and the nation, and on the liberty of the citizens. [More]
