State Representative Chris Miller of Hindsboro and John Boch, Executive Director at Guns Save Life, are set to host a special event addressing Second Amendment rights in the aftermath of Illinois Governor Pritzker's signing of a controversial gun ban into law earlier this year. The event will focus on the impact of the firearm ban and efforts by Republican legislators to protect constitutional rights.
The event aims to provide transparency to constituents and an opportunity for the public to engage with Representative Miller and Second Amendment advocates. According to Rep. Miller, the goal of this gathering is to provide the public with a chance to listen to Rep. Miller and fellow advocates of the Second Amendment. They aim to discuss strategies for resisting political overreach. It is crucial for constituents to receive openness from their legislators, wanting those who attend to feel empowered to express their opinions during this event."
The law, HB5471, signed by Governor Pritzker, requires law-abiding citizens to register specific firearms, magazines, and attachments with the Illinois State Police. Opponents argue that the law violates constitutional rights. Dan Caulkins a Representative from Decatur has taken the fight to the U.S. Supreme Court, petitioning for a review of the Illinois Supreme Court's decision on the weapons ban law, citing concerns about due process, equal protection, and Second Amendment grounds.
Guns Save Life, a gun rights advocacy group affiliated with the National Rifle Association and the Illinois State Rifle Association, is dedicated to defending people's right to self-defense. Rep. Miller emphasized the importance of protecting the Second Amendment and expressed enthusiasm about engaging with the public.
