State Representative Dan Beiser and Alton State Senator Bill Haine are teaming up to try to stop proposed legislation that would durastically alter gun registration in Illinois. Under a new measure that was sent before the Illinois General Assembly by Chicago Mayor Rham Emanuel, gun owners would be required to pay a $65 registration fee and also have their information entered in a data base and tracked by the Illinois State Police.

Beiser says that he and Senator Haine will do everything they can to prevent this measure from becomming law.

Beiser also says that the proposed legislation violates Second Amendment rights and that this downstate Illinoisans shouldn't have their rights infringed on because of a problem that only affects the city of Chicago.
