Several Anti-Gun Measures Advance In Illinois

Several anti-gun bills have been released by the Illinois House Rules Committee and referred to the Judiciary Committee for hearings. Consequently, Illinois gun owners need to contact their House members immediately.

According to NRA-ILA, House Bill 4107 would ban many types of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and accessories and impose registration on all current owners. This anti-gun legislation would also ban a broad range of “trigger modification devices” and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. 

House Bill 4112 mirrors much of HB 4107’s ban on “trigger modification devices,” but also makes possession of any affected devices a felony offense punishable by three to seven years of imprisonment.  If enacted, HB 4112 would create tens of thousands of felons overnight.

House Bill 4117 also seeks to place bans on many popular “trigger modification devices,” and Senate Bill 1657 would create onerous mandatory regulations, fees potentially in the thousands of dollars, and excessive amounts of red tape that would almost assuredly force the closure of many firearm dealers while preventing prospective owners from opening new ones.


NRA-ILA urges all Illinois gun owners to immediately contact their state representative and urge him or her to oppose Senate Bill 1657, and House Bills 4107, 4112 and 4117. Contact them by clicking here.
