Richmond resident Michael Moore has sent out the following alert to his customers and friends:
URGENT ALERT: Village of RICHMOND to vote on “assault weapons” ban
WHEN: TONIGHT – Wednesday, July 3, 2013
TIME: 7PM (Please arrive by 6:30PM)
WHERE: Richmond Village Hall, 5600 Hunter Drive, Richmond, IL
We will have the “Anywhere CCW” Car parked there, front and center! This is the HOMETOWN OF ANYWHERE CCW! Please come support us! Reply to this email if you plan on attending.
After the passage of IL HB-183 (amended to be CCW) through both houses of the Illinois Legislature, Rep Drury and Lt. Gov Sheila Simon have issued statements urging the passage of local firearms bans during a window of time provided for in the bill.
Simon and Drury are promoting bans on semi-automatic firearms that you own under the guise of “Assault Weapons”. This would likely include popular sporting and defensive firearms like the AR-15, and standard-capacity magazines for all kinds of handguns and rifles. Law-abiding gun owners could face confiscation of their firearms or criminal prosecution.
For status of previous meetings, other meeting times, talking points against semi-auto bans, copies of proposed ordinances, links to other resources; please visit http://isra.org/townhall .
Please forward this alert to your mailing list and post it on your favorite forum.
