http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ful...=1465&GAID=14&LegID=101955&SpecSess=&Session= How will this affect waterfowlers? As I don't trust the corrupt Chicago area one iota, I think this could possibly cause lots of problems. 1) Shotguns that hold 6 rounds are considered assault weapons, thus can't be sold to anyone under 21. You may say, well, my semi-auto only holds 5. Well, I remember a few years ago, an importer was selling dove/trap loads that were 2 1/2" long, or less. You could get three in the tube with a plugged shotgun, thus you'd be able to get 6 in an unplugged semi-auto. Do we really want to let them make inferences that these are assault weapons and illegal for those under 21 to own? I think not. And, what happens if your 19 yr. old is out hunting alone with your SBE, and it can possibly hold 6 rounds? He didn't purchase it, but he's in possession. 2) While there is an exemption for the use of extension tubes DURING the Conservation Goose Season. Even if we clear the earlier problem, if your teen is driving to the field for opening day, BEFORE legal shooting time, he'd better not have that extension tube on the gun. He will legally have to remove it BEFORE the end of the season. So, if he's hunting the last afternoon, he'll have to quit and remove it BEFORE the end of legal shooting time. Plus, can he even be in possession of an extension tube except during the Conservation season? If you think there aren't over zealous cops, prosecutors and judges out there who are drooling over this bill, I think you will find you are sadly mistaken.
