RE: HB5471 – Protect Illinois Communities Act

To Whom It May Concern,

The right to keep and bear arms for the defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people of Adams County, Illinois.

The Adams County Republican Party, among many others, believe that HB5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.

The above-mentioned legislation infringes the right to keep and bear arms, banning the possession and use of certain firearms and magazines now legally owned or possessed by our individual citizens. Responsible persons are prevented from owning or possessing certain firearms and firearm accessories or face becoming instant felons.

The Adams County Republican Party hereby expresses strong opposition of the enactment of any of the above-mentioned legislation, or any similar legislation, that would infringe upon the right of the people, particularly those rights to keep and bear arms, and considers such laws to be unconstitutional and beyond lawful legislative authority.

Further, we urge that the Illinois General Assembly cease further actions restricting the right of the people to keep and bear arms, repeal this enacted legislation and/or urge the Governor of Illinois to veto all such legislation.

Best Regards,
Dave Bockhold
Chairman, Adams County Republican Central Committee
