I've posted about this in the gun forum. But I needed to write about it here also.

It's a shame that an elected official is once again trying to regulate our gun ownership. Now I know it's only on a state level, in Illinois, but if they pass it there it could get passed in your state. Do you really want that to happen.

We need to defeat House Bill 687 now while it is in committee, let's not try to do it after it out and on the floor for a full vote.

Jim Dunkin - Democrat from Chicago is the author behind this disastrous bill. It will not only cost the gun owner outrageously high insurance cost, but could cost them every thing they own if a gun they had reported as being owned by them is ever used in a crime. The actually bill states the following.

Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance

430 ILCS 65/4.5 new

430 ILCS 65/8from Ch. 38, par. 83-8

Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that any person who owns a firearm in this State shall maintain a policy of liability insurance in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person. Provides that a person shall be deemed the owner of a firearm after the firearm is lost or stolen until such loss or theft is reported to the police department or sheriff of the jurisdiction in which the owner resides. Provides that the Department of State Police shall revoke and seize a Firearm Owner's Identification Card previously issued under this Act if the Department finds that the person to whom such card was issued possesses or acquires a firearm and does not submit evidence to the Department of State Police that he or she has been issued in his or her name a liability insurance policy in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person. Effective January 1, 2010.

You can alos read this at http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/Bill...10&LegID=41158

So know if the gun you own is ever used in a crime you will be held liable. This insurance policy requirement would be the death of anyone ever caught in the line if they never reported a gun they own stolen or even lost. They already have the FIC card. Which requires you to register all your guns. Which I course I sure many have never done. I knowif I lived in Illinois I wouldn't let them have any knowledge of what guns I own.

So get out and contact your House Representive today. Don't wait. To find out how to contact your Representive go to http://www.ilga.gov/house/default.asp. You will need to know what district you live in. The Rules Comittee memebers can be found here. http://www.ilga.gov/house/committees...eeID=602&GA=96
