Our Newest Op Ed
- By Warner Todd Huston
Representatives Daniel J. Burke and Edward J. Acevedo (both Democrats from Chicago, of course) have decided that squirt guns are dangerous, apparently. Last year, Burke sponsored HB4132 in the Capital, Springfield, IL, which will make "replica" guns illegal in the state.(Introduced 10/20/05)
Here is the synopsis of the bill:
Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that it is unlawful for any person to purchase, possess, use, sell, give away, or otherwise transfer, or to engage in the business of selling, or to exhibit for sale, any replica rocket propelled grenade launcher, bazooka, artillery piece, grenade, mine, bomb, or items similar to weapons designed and manufactured for military purposes or replicas of those items. Provides that a violation is a Class A misdemeanor.
