Thread: So in Chicago, a BB / Pellet Rifle is classified as a "firearm"? WTF?

    So in Chicago, a BB / Pellet Rifle is classified as a "firearm"? WTF?
    So, if it looks like a gun it's a firearm? A water pistol, squirt gun, water blaster...
    And I guess the chip that the pellet made in the brick wall, requires that the wall be replaced?
    Burn down a church and a report gets filled out, shoot a bb or a pellet at a mosque and Rham will turn the city inside out hunting you down and charge you with multiple felonies...

    Here's a serious air gun..

    Still doesn't fit the definition of a "firearm".

    .50 cal. air rifle....

    Oh no....looking like crow for dinner...When I heard air gun, I thought Daisy and Crossman. I have heard of these high velocity air guns afterall as they have been around for a very long time (like Lewis and Clark era)....If that's what was used then I guess I can see them classifying it with firearms. Thanks for the enlightenment...

    I find it appalling that Ill. is trying to prosecute an air-gun under firearms statutes..

    The fed 1968 gun act clearly separated the two.

    Hopefully this guy can afford good council..

    Notice i didn't attempt to address the political motives of either the accused or the prosecutor...

    I still stand with my statement about the church vs the mosque and not defending this new America though...

    By the way, what's up with this that's been circulating around? Is this some more anti=gun propaganda or what? For one thing, guns can't be purchased by mailorder, UPS or Fed Ex without a FFL, especially through Amazon can they?

    They are classified as firearms in NJ as well.

    Sale and possession of air guns are not regulated federally, nor are they regulated by most state and local governments. A few States and municipalities which do restrict or prohibit air gun sales or possession in some manner are San Francisco, New York, New York; Camden, New Jersey and Newark, New Jersey. Johnson City, Tennessee; Massachusetts, Chicago, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the States of Illinois, and Michigan. Additionally, ordinances in many cities prohibit the discharge of air guns outdoors outside of an approved range.

    In summary, Amerika is moving towards the prohibition of any device which can be used as a weapon for defensive or any other purpose by the serfs.
