SB-1007, which is being considered in Illinois, would ban a variety of gun that have been around since the 1800’s – hardly the guns which criminals prefer or would even be caught dead with.

As the ISRA notes, Proponents of SB-1007 don’t want to admit it’s a gun ban. From the 1873 Winchester John Wayne made immortal, to the Henry Rifle designed by B. Tyler Henry (used by Danny Glover in Silverado), the guns that won the west would be banned under SB-1007. This is yet another misguided attempt at banning so called “assault weapons.”

More information about SB-1007, along with pictures of the guns which would be banned, can be seen here.

Please don’t forget to take further action to protect our gun rights.
