So by now we've all heard Illinois is banning all semi-auto firearms and imposing a mag ban that will result in 99% of magazines being confiscated (how many folks do you know that saved receipts in the 80s and 90s when buying mags?).

The Good - this is a perfect test case to determine is semi-auto rifles are commonly used per Heller while the SOTUS is still in our favor.

The Bad - Many Illinois residents may be deprived of their lawful property while this is sorted out in the courts.

The Ugly - California will no longer be the crappiest place in the country to own a gun. Our gun laws are generous compared to the new Illinois ban!

They gave up on the idea for now: Democrats pull plug on gun, ammo bans

SPRINGFIELD — There’s not enough support in the Illinois Senate to impose tough new restrictions on semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips...A spokeswoman for Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, offered no timetable for when the gun safety proposals might surface again.

OK that's good news, because if there's not enough support in Illinois then there's DEFINITELY not enough support at the federal level either. YAY!!!!!
