Anti-Gun Legislation Proposed in Illinois House

Illinois House Democrats filed a massive gun control bill that would, among other things, outlaw the manufacturing, possession, delivery, sale, and purchase of so-called “assault” weapons.

The legislation would, effective immediately, enact a series of regulations on the gun industry in addition to the ban on “assault” weapons. Those regulations include banning ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, requiring registration of any already owned assault weapons with the State Police for a $25 fee, banning many semi-automatic shotguns, raising the age of eligibility for Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) cards for residents not in the Armed Forces or National Guard to 21 with no parental permission exception, banning those younger than the age of 21 from hunting unless under the supervision of an adult with a FOID card, and increasing the length of firearm restraining orders from six months to one year.
