Illinois State Assembly approves gun confiscation bill
The state legislature of Illinois has approved a bill, HB 1465, which:
Requires 18 to 20-year-olds to hand over or transfer ownership of heretofore legally possessed “assault weapons” — which the NRA-ILA describes as commonly-owned “semi-automatic firearms” — as well as any magazines that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition.
Bans the sale of certain types of semi-automatic weapons to individuals under age 21.
Makes owning such a weapon by persons under age 21 a Class 3 felony for a first offense and a Class 2 felony for a second offense.
