ISRA Condemns SB2720

ISRA Condemns Senator Morrison’s Attempt to Take More Freedoms from Gun Owners

On January 10th, Senator Julie Morrison (D IL-29) filed legislation (SB2720) that would take away the freedom to drive in Illinois should an individual’s FOID card become revoked. The Illinois State Rifle Association immediately warned its members and Illinois gun owners of yet another attack on their rights. 

“It is no surprise to us that Senator Morrison chose the one year anniversary of the Illinois ban on commonly owned firearms to unveil yet another attack on the freedoms of Illinois firearm owners.”, said Richard Pearson, Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association.
Over the years many gun owners in Illinois have had their rights withheld due to errors in the Illinois State Police FOID database, and serious delays in proper processing. Now Senator Morrison is relying on these same faulty databases for data to enforce her proposed bill. 
“Illinois firearms owners have felt like they’re being punished with an understaffed State Police and faulty databases causing them to lose their rights and end up in an endless bureaucracy. This proposed law is a continuation of the punishment of those who try to exercise their second amendment rights in Illinois “ said Doug Mayhall, President of the ISRA. 
The ISRA would like to remind Illinois lawmakers that they have passed several reforms in the last few years designed to stop the outdated process of using a driver’s license as punishment for non criminal offenses. Senator Morrison’s bill would reverse that trend.
