If this passes, what happens to the people who already own them?

I find this funny since there is no designation of "assault rifle". So how are they going to classify it, just based on the .50 caliber that's in the bill?

Considering people are already leaving Illinois in droves over taxes, this will only push people out hurt the state more

You previously legally bought a gun that fits Illinois' Assault weapon criteria.

Will they come to your door to confiscate it?

Do you suddenly become a criminal if you own one and don't turn it in?

If you use it to defend your home from criminals, do you get charged with a crime as well?

It will be interesting to see the court challenge (which may go to the Supreme Court).

I don't see how they could force people to turn them in. Really have no idea how they would enforce that.

Who cares. X million legal gun owners in IL just became instant felons. The politicians don't give a fuck. They've never given a fuck.

On a side note. I close on my house in NWI on 10/27. :)
Regardless if we think differently on a subject, I'm still fucking jealous.

Such a vaguely written bill... and purposely.

You better believe they consider ARs "assault rifles" too. Hell, AR even stands for "assault rifle" according to them, amirite?

Liberals will be so happy and feeling all good if this bill passes......and it will have basically no impact on IL crime, especially Chicago murders, whatsoever.
