HB 4117 -- the "Illinois Bump Stock Ban" -- is one of a flurry of similar pieces legislation. This legislation that is overly broad, vague and could put many otherwise law-abiding residents in criminal jeopardy.
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, "increase the rate of fire."
Think aftermarket trigger parts. Think aftermarket springs. This awful bill must be stopped.
*** UPDATE*** This measure was defeated on 10/26/2017 on the IL House Floor!
From the Chicago Tribune:
" But opponents, including Rep. Jerry Costello, a Democrat from Downstate Smithton, called the bill too far-reaching because it would ban any modification that accelerates the rate of fire — such as changing a spring or replacing a trigger.
Costello said the legislation would turn people who modify firearms to compete in shooting competitions into lawbreakers. Most lawmakers agreed with his side of the argument, rejecting the proposal by a 48-54 vote. "
Thanks to you, this measure was defeated. There are several other similar measures still alive in Illinois, so stay vigilant!
