Get Ready: State’s New Gun Law Sets Stage for Gun Confiscation (Video)

Monday, March 12, 2018 15:38
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Illinois has passed a controversial and strict new set of anti-gun laws that now sits on the governor’s desk and one of its provisions requires that all citizens under 21 will not only lose their right to bear arms, but that they will have to turn in their guns, sell them or transfer them to someone else, or, barring that, have them removed from their possession. And liberals always say that no one is going to take away your guns, right?

Well, once again we see that all liberals lie.

At the end of February, the Illinois House of Representatives passed House Bill 1465, a law that would ban the ownership of “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines for anyone under 21 years of age.

HB 1465 was sponsored by Chicago area Rep. Michelle Mussman (D-Schaumburg) and passed by a vote of 64-51 on February 28.

It next went to the Illinois Senate where it added seven co-sponsors including Sen. Jim Oberweis (R-Sugar Grove), whom the NRA had previously given an “A” rating. If this doesn’t show that in Illinois there is no difference between a Democrat and a Republican, what does?

The bill shocked many, though, because one of its provisions stated that citizens under 21 (are they really citizens after this?) had only ninety days to “transfer” ownership of the firearms and magazines they would until then have owned legally or be considered a criminal.

Now, the original sponsor of the bill, Democrat Mussman, hastened to insist that the state wouldn’t be sending cops to kids’ houses to confiscate their guns. She claimed that no confiscation is in the plans but noted that if someone under 21 is caught with such a newly banned gun will be charged with a misdemeanor.

But, this is an example of the camel’s nose under the tent if there ever was. If the cops don’t get anyone to follow the new law, then the only recourse is to strengthen the law to force confiscation of such guns. It is only the next logical step and since laws always grow, never shrink, this is bound to happen eventually. The stage has already been set for it.

Liberals say that they aren’t out to confiscate your guns. But we already have several states doing so right now. Connecticut, New York, and California all have varying degrees of laws where guns are right now being confiscated because of new rules.

This new “under 21” nonsense is only the latest example of the creeping destruction of our Second Amendment rights. And, in fact, it’s all based on misconceptions and outright lies.

First of all, keeping guns out of the hands of people under 21 will have little effect on mass shootings. Thus far the average age of mass shooters is 33. They have not been hotheaded, immature teenagers. Most have been in their 20s and early 30s with a few in their 50s and 60s.

Further, the age restriction makes no sense on a variety of levels. Are we as a society saying that 18-year-olds are stable, mature, and smart enough to vote, drive, live on their own, 

work, own property, enter into certain contracts, AND go into the military to fight our wars… but are too untrustworthy and immature to be allowed to exercise their God-given right to self-protection?

How does that even make sense?

But this age 21 business also causes a problem for young hunters. NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said in a statement published by The Hill newspaper that this all makes for bad law.

“Passing a law that makes it illegal for a 20-year-old to purchase a shotgun for hunting or adult single mother from purchasing the most effective self-defense rifle on the market punishes law-abiding citizens for the evil acts of criminals,” she said.

The paper went on:

Any law that requires an individual to be 21 or older to buy a firearm “effectively prohibits” adults aged 18-20 from buying a firearm “deprives them of their constitutional right to self-protection.”…

The bill that will now head to the Illinois Senate, HB 1465,

  • Makes it unlawful for any person within the State to knowingly deliver or sell, or cause to be delivered or sold, an assault weapon, assault weapon attachment, .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge to, any person under 21 years of age.
  • Makes it unlawful for any person under 21 years of age to knowingly possess an assault weapon, assault weapon attachment, .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge 90 days after the effective date of the bill. Provides exemptions and penalties.
  • Provides that it is unlawful for any person within the State to knowingly deliver or sell, or cause to be delivered or sold, a large capacity ammunition feeding device to a person under 21 years of age.
  • Provides that it is unlawful for any person under 21 years of age to possess a large capacity ammunition feeding device within the State.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives voted no on the measure, and expressed her concern about the issue earlier this week when Illinois Review asked her about raising the age buying a gun to age 21.

“What other rights are we going to raise to age 21?” Ives answered. “The age is arbitrary. The average age of a mass shooter is somewhere in the 30s.”

But this is all of a piece for the left. Their goal is not “safety” but full control of the populace. After all, an armed populace cannot be controlled.

Along with chipping away at the laws stating just who can and who cannot own a firearm and continually enlarging the list of those who cannot, the left is also waging a war for the mind to create an atmosphere against firearms. The left is attempting to make guns just as abhorrent to civil society as smoking or Christianity.

The left wants to make it so that society as a whole hates guns and are appalled by them at a visceral level. The left wants Americans to view gun owners as horrible, disgusting, hateful people. They want gun owners to be “othered.” And, using the “Rules for Radicals” playbook they are using the tactic of projection to create that feeling of hatred.

For instance, this month the criminal, domestic terror outfit Black Lives Matter came out to portray the National Rifle Association as a “terrorist organization.”

If ANY movement in American history is a domestic terror organization, it is Black Lives Matter. BLM has shut down cities, has caused billions of dollars in property damage, and breaks laws everywhere it operates. Yet, BLM has the temerity to call the NRA a “terrorist” group?

What laws has the NRA broken? What riot has the NRA sponsored? What city hall or local community has the NRA burned down?

But this is how the left works. They are the terrorists, they are anti-American, they are lawbreakers, they are dangerous, yet there they stand pointing the finger at their opponents. And with a national media establishment working in their favor, their message of hate reaches every American, every man woman, and child. And they operate under the maxim that if you tell the lie long enough and loudly enough it will eventually become “fact.”

This is what we face, America. Don’t let them win. Fight these lying liberals with every inch of your being.

    Here is something to think about ! The legal age to buy cigarettes in some states is 21 . The legal age to buy alcohol in some states is 21 . The legal age to buy marijuana in many states is 21 . The legal age to buy tide pods should also be 21 . Now back to assault rifles . Yes I can see the age to buy a weapon that can fire simi-automatic but can be changed into automatic should be 21 . 3 more years gives the child a chance to mature up some . Insurance companies also hold hostage a boy from the age of 16 to 25 as drivers . They pay more because they have trouble trying to contain themselves when behind the wheel of a vehicle that has a few hundred horses pushing it down the road . Now let the child get a Dodge Hellcat or Dodge Demon and the parents have to sell the home to pay their insurance . Its bad enough to allow them to buy single shooting pistols or guns . Even then we have reports of shootings among hunters that was almost shot when a deer passes between them . I know of a case were the teens friend was shot and killed because he got excited to shot the deer and did not see his friend in the bushes between the deer and himself . Anyone stupid enough to eat tide pods does not need a assault rifle in their possession . And yes I admit that there are some teens who are very responsible . But for the most part the most of them are not responsible . Yet they can still buy a single shot gun . I can agree that assault rifles do not need to be in the hands of children that states and insurance companies agree do not need to buy things that cause health problem for them or have power over things that can easily kill others , because they are not mature enough to know not to buy these objects . No assault rifle till 21 ! Oh and I am strongly a gun advocate and believe in people having the right to protect themselves with a gun ! That’s why I did not say take all guns away from those under 21 .

      And yet 18 year olds can go into the military and fight. They are theoretically defending a Constitution that does not protect their rights? I agree that the average 18 year old of today is expected to still be an immature little kid, but not too long ago, they were expected to be men. What changed?

    • Just me

      You are not a gun advocate. You don’t even know what an “assault rifle” is. To suggest that a semi-automatic can be easily changed into an automatic without a serious gun smithing makes you sound like a moron.

  • Ideas Time

    Time to have a constitutional police force that works for the people and start arresting these traitors and put them on trial in a real Common Law Court not the fake kangaroo corporate courts run by and for the state.

    • Just me

      iIt’s called the militia and is sanctioned by the constitution this bunch of traitors hates.

  • Just me

    “She claimed that no confiscation is in the plans”

    Ordering them to turn in their guns IS CONFISCATION! And if they are found with one they will SURELY be taken away. Stupid people – why are they not yet resisting? First those under 21. Then those who are under a doctors care. Then those who don’t share your political opinion. Then those who write comments such as this.
