Make no mistake: The people who hate guns will never quit until they confiscate every last one. They banned automatic rifles in 1986; now they're back for the semi-automatic guns. A recent bill proposed in Illinois would have outlawed all modern firearms including pump-action shotguns. There can be no compromise or capitulation on this issue. Any politician who infringes on our rights to the least degree should be soundly defeated at the ballot box.
