State Rep. Allen Skillicorn reached back to the 1980’s in his floor speech against the passage of the bill to have state government licensing still another activity–gun stores.
“They went to the sporting goods store and they wanted to look up the gun registry.
“They wanted to look up the records of who owned the guns.
“Nothing is going to stop the state of Illinois from looking up this information if we now require this.
“This is a gun registry and that’s it.”

Thanks to Capitol Fax for the information in this post, plus the following:
I have no doubt that many voting for the bill want government to have control of all guns, our government, not the Communists.
