- Bill - HB 4107: Gun Ban Omnibus
- Position: Strongly Opposed
- Sponsor: Representative Martin J. Moylan (D-55)
HB 4107-- the "Illinois Gun Ban Omnibus" -- is one of the most insane pieces of legislation ever brought forward in any State in the Union, let alone Illinois.
With the terrible events recently in Las Vegas as the excuse, Representative Moylan has introduced one of the most far reaching gun bans in American history
This bill could easily ban virtually any device, part, or accessory -- including OEM parts that have been refined or machined by a licensed gunsmith -- that regulators or law enforcement believes could, as the measure states, "accelerate the rate of fire."
Think aftermarket trigger parts. Think aftermarket springs. This awful bill must be stopped.
By trying to one-up freedom-hating states like New York and California, HB 4107 will also ban most common modern sporting firearms by arbitrarily naming them "Assault Weapons" AND any part that could be "attached" to one.. thats right--it bans assault attachments...
HB 4107 not only bans guns based on cometic features and vague definitions of accessories or attachments, not only does it ban guns based on its perceived potential "rate of fire".... it also bans them based on caliber (.50 BMG) , or weight (50 ounces for pistols) or fixed magazine capacity (varies depending on platform).
HB 4107 Introduces a total ban on "large capacity magazines"-- defined as 10 rounds.
This measure is so broad, so vague, so all encompassing, it may very well criminalize everyday law-abiding gun owners simply for having a common firearm and/r virtually any part, attachment or accessory. Its full reach can not be understated or fully explored here.
