Illinois: Governor Abuses Amendatory Veto Powers to Propose Semi-Auto Ban

Posted: 08.01.12 07:00 AM

Yesterday, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (D) vetoed the NRA-backed ammunition purchase reform bill, Senate Bill 681, after this common sense legislation had*passed with*overwhelming bipartisan support in the Illinois legislature (previously reported on here).***In a crass attempt to exploit the recent tragedy in Colorado and seek media attention,*Quinn used his Amendatory Veto powers in an attempt to*impose more draconian gun control in Illinois.* Quinn rewrote the entire bill as an amendment to the Illinois Criminal Code that includes an onerous ban on the manufacture, possession, delivery or sale of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms (inaccurately referred to as “assault weapons”), .50 caliber rifles and cartridges and “high capacity” magazines in Illinois.* Quinn’s amendment additionally tramples on the rights of Illinois citizens by creating a de facto statewide registration scheme for currently-owned firearms and magazines.
