In the end, with much hard work, things worked out. One by one, these anti-gun bills were stopped - at least for now. This is the situation with SB 1657, the proposed Illinois Gun Dealer Licensing Act. While the bill technically remains on the legislative calendar, by everybody's accounting SB 1657 is now dead. There is insufficient legislative support to pass the bill, and the Governor has publically indicated his opposition as well. This positive outcome is the result of many players, including ISRA, NRA, legislative champions on both sides of the aisle, and Illinois gun manufacturers, most particularly Rock River Arms and Springfield Armory.
To help keep our political wall strong, Rock River Arms, Springfield Armory, and L.W. Schneider are hosting legislative tours of their plants in partnership with ISRA, NRA and NSSF.
