The NRA reports that a ominous bill is being presented in the Illinois State Legislature. This bill would introduce tougher penalties for using a gun in a crime, but-worse than that- impose a 3 to 10 year minimum prison sentence for carrying a gun without a permit or possessing a gun without a firearm owners identification card.
Most states would label the previous offense as a misdemeanor. Other states do not require a permit for openly carrying firearms, and in a few states some do not require a permit for concealed carry. Illinois alone is the state that requires a permit to just own a gun.
Here is the press release from the NRA-ILA:
House Bill 2265, sponsored by state Representative Michael Zalewski (D-23), is poised to create and impose harsh mandatory minimum felony penalties ranging from three to ten years in prison for those who carry a firearm without a Concealed Carry License (CCL) or possess a firearm without a Firearm Owners Identification Card (FOID).
This specific provision incorrectly targets otherwise law-abiding citizens, rather than deterring violent criminals with harsher penalties.
NASA is warning that we have 13 months to get ready. See why FEMA has ordered 300 million body bags in the face of what some are calling WWIII. CLICK HERE (sponsored)
