Gun Ranges to be Regulated Under Draconian Bill

by Paul Joseph Watson,  |  published on January 3, 2013

The NRA’s 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 reported earlier today, second amendment activists are incensed about an upcoming bill in the Illinois legislature which, according to the Illinois State Rifle Association, would leave gun owners with, “a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.”

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 “subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police.”

In confirming the bill’s imminent introduction, the NRA’s Illinois rep. Todd Vandermyde also warned that the legislation would place crippling regulations on private gun ranges and place them under state control.

“Sources 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,” Vandermyde wrote on the website.

The bill would also block non-Firearm Owners Identification card owners from “firearms safety training that has live fire components with it,” creating yet another stumbling block which would prevent Americans from exercising their second amendment rights.
