IL Democrat Introduces Bill to Register All Firearms | The Gateway Pundit

The New American reported:

Another anti-gun bill mandating (this time) the registration of every firearm in the state of Illinois (plus permission slips to purchase ammunition) was introduced last month by self-proclaimed LGBT activist and progressive Democrat Kelly Cassidy. Representing state district 14, Cassidy’s bill is called simply: “Firearms Registration Act.” Cassidy’s goal is simple: She wants the Illinois State Police to know where every firearm in the state is, what its registration number is, who owns it, and where they live. From her bill:

Every person in the State must register each firearm he or she owns or possesses in according with the Act….

[The Act] provides that the Department of State Police must complete a background check of any person who applies for … a registration certificate for a firearm that was lawfully owned or possessed on the effective date of the Act…

[The Act] provides that it is a Class 2 felony to sell or transfer ownership of a firearm to another person without complying with the registration requirements of [the Act].

She also wants the police to know who’s buying and shooting ammunition:

[The Act] provides that a person shall not purchase or possess ammunition within this State without having first obtained a registration certificate identifying a firearm that is suitable for use with that ammunition.

Gun grabbers never, ever stop.  Every time they meet defeat, they just come up with a new, effectively confiscatory law.

Good thing that gun registration never, ever leads to confiscation, right?

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I haven’t clicked through–yet–to read the article, but this caught my eye:
    “[The Act] provides that the Department of State Police must complete a background check of any person who applies for … a registration certificate for a firearm that was lawfully owned or possessed on the effective date of the Act…”

    The only reason they would have to do a background check on people who already have guns is to confiscate some subset of them.
