Coming up with Bishop On Air: Capacity limits passes senate committee, the politics of concealed carry, and more! Don't miss Bishop On Air on 970 WMAY, weekdays from 10 to noon!
They passed what?
The Illinois Senate Executive Committee passed the magazine capacity limit measure, which means it will head to the full Senate floor. What they essentially did is move to potentially make an estimated hundreds of thousands of gun owners felons overnight. Those who passed it hope to "save the children" by limiting the number of high capacity magazines to only allow civilians to have nothing more than 10 rounds per mag. What does that mean? Maybe the below video, the most recent episode in the Gun-Free Zone series, will shed some light on the situation.
So, they think that by limiting the number of rounds you have in a magazine, in essence telling you how many bullets you need to protect yourself, your family and your property, will save the children. But, they are exempting law enforcement and the shooting sports. The magazine capacity limit also essentially puts a vast majority of handguns available on the open market (not the black market) out of limits for you and I, law abiding gun owners.
Joining the show just after 10:30 will be professor emeritus Kent Redfield who will help us navigate the looming questions of the concealed carry issue. Will constitutional carry set in? What will happen if the legislature doesn't act? What about the possible appeal from the attorney general's office? We'll get those questions answered with Professor Redfield today with Bishop On Air.
