Illinois: Quinn Gun Ban Defeated in Springfield

Posted: 12.04.12 09:00 AM

Today, Governor Patrick Quinn’s procedural maneuver to enact a gun ban (previously reported*here) was defeated by the Illinois House of Representatives as they convened for a veto session.* In a 78–28 vote, an overwhelming majority of state Representatives overrode Governor Quinn’s amendatory veto to Senate Bill 681.* Now, Senate Bill 681 as it was initially written and originally passed by overwhelming majorities in the state Senate and House has been enacted and is in effect, protecting online FOID purchase of ammunition using delivery services which are federally authorized to ship ammunition.* Thank you to all Illinois NRA members for contacting their state legislators and reminding Governor Quinn that your voices are stronger than his subversive tactics.
