Gun Ranges to be Regulated Under Gun Confiscation Bill
Legislation criminalizes gun owners in Illinois
The NRAâs Illinois representative Todd Vandermyde warns that a draconian piece of legislation set for imminent introduction in the state would not only outlaw most modern firearms and criminalize their owners, but would also place gun ranges under restrictive police regulation.
As Infowars reportedÂ earlier today, second amendment activists are incensed about an upcoming bill in the Illinois legislature which,Â according to the Illinois State Rifle Association, would leave gun owners with, âa very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.â
The bill, the precise text of which has not yet been released, would virtually ban all modern firearms including semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns, and pump action shotguns. The legislation could be signed into law as early as Friday, leaving most guns âsubject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police.â
In confirming the billâs imminent introduction, the NRAâs Illinois rep. Todd Vandermyde also warned that the legislation would place crippling regulations on private gun ranges and place them under state control.
âSources say the new bills would require any range open to the public to be run by an FFL. That they would be licensed under unlimited rules and regulations by the State Police. If you say what the Governor did under his AV of SB-681, you can imagine what kind of rules/standards he would put in place to run a range,âÂ Vandermyde wroteÂ on the IllinoisCarry.com website.
The bill would also block non-Firearm Owners Identification card owners from âfirearms safety training that has live fire components with it,â creating yet another stumbling block which would prevent Americans from exercising their second amendment rights.
âAt this time we have no bill numbers, but anticipate them using house bills passed over for floor amendments which would only take a matter of hours to clear committee and be ready for a final vote,â writes Vandermyde in aÂ separate post.

The Illinois legislation is set to dovetail with aÂ gun control bill at the national levelÂ introduced by California Senator Dianne Feinstein which would instantly criminalize millions of gun owners in the United States by banning a plethora of different types of firearms.
