Generate some revenue for the state, and run the little guys out of business.
The sentence highlighted is the crux of the problem! Giving the STATE more OVERSIGHT (Control) over Guns IS the problem!!The new communist governor just signed into law the bill that was vetoed by the prior governor. It is designed to drive the small Mom & Pop gun stores out of business, further denying legal citizens the ability to procure tools for their self defense. It may also result in the closing of the marginally profitable ranges associated with those stores. A bonus for the communists here will be the revenue that they will get from the people who decide to stay in the business.
"It’s aimed at giving the state more oversight over gun sales at gun shops. It requires gun shops to get a state license, put in surveillance cameras, establish electronic inventory system and anti-theft systems and train employees every year on spotting straw gun sales."
"The Illinois Rifle Association said the bill is designed to put small firearms dealers out of business. The license will cost a dealer up to $1,500"
This is what happens when the Dems use a big city (Chicago) as a large voting block to get themselves elected and why Dems want to do away with the Electoral College. Texas may be getting a wake up call as 400,000 Californians have recently moved to Texas. You will need to educate them quickly on why they should not bring the crap with them that was the reason they left.I feel for Illinoisans who have to put up with this nonsense. This is what happens when elected officials think they can lord over their constituents. Well, I guess they can if they're never voted out.
This guy was just elected. This is his 1st weeks in office. Sadly for now but nearly the entire state of Illinois has now turned dark Blue. As for me I am only 5 minutes from the Illinois border. As seen elsewhere there are many Illinisians relocating to Wisconsin and they are bringing their corrupt government with them.I feel for Illinoisans who have to put up with this nonsense.
