    So, what does "a large capacity ammunition feeding device" mean? My XDm Compact 9mm came with a 13 round magazine (the short one) and a 19 round magazine (with grip extension). I was planning to take that with me to visit a friend in Illinois. Would this law make my magazines illegal? How many rounds are allowed? 10? 1? None?

    Then, if I'm reading it right, the bill starts off sounding like it's reducing a restriction on mail order ammunition, but gets hijacked my the governor to restrict many modern handguns.

    Grrrrr.....

    <<rant off>> Sorry about that. Just frosts my fanny.

    Illinois Senate Bill 681 fails in the Illinois Senate, now goes to the Illinois House.


    [​IMG]






    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- An aide says Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will "vigorously pursue" a ban on assault weapons even though the Senate rebuffed his attempt on Wednesday.

    The Senate voted 49-4 Wednesday to override Quinn's rewritten legislation to prohibit the sale or possession of semi-automatic rifles, high-capacity magazines and .50-caliber guns.

    Spokeswoman Brooke Anderson says the Democratic governor will continue seeking a statewide assault-weapons ban to enhance public safety. She would not elaborate on his strategy.

    Senators say Quinn overstepped his authority in August by changing legislation on mail-order ammunition. He acted after a mass shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater.

    If the House also votes to override, the original legislation allowing Illinois gun owners to purchase ammunition by mail from in-state dealers becomes law.


    The bill is SB681

    The voters of Il. Have made some bad past choices when they selected their Gov., State and federal reps. But this present Gov., based on news articles, is hell bent on becoming the worst.
