How did they do that? Because of the overly broad wording of their new assault weapons ban (edited to clean up the text to make it more readable, but not change the wording):

(3) "Assault weapon" means:

(snip of irrelevant sections A and B)

(C) A semiautomatic rifle that can accept or can be modified to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:
(i) A folding, telescoping, or collapsible stock.
(ii) Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stock, or any other stock, the use of
which would allow an individual to grip the weapon, resulting in any finger on the trigger hand in
addition to the trigger finger being directly below any portion of the action of the weapon when firing.

emphasis added

Now picture any semiauto rifle you can think of. Now tell me which one, if any, sees the pinkie finger of the trigger hand not being below the action of the rifle.

Thus, all semiauto rifles in Illinois are now legally defined as assault weapons and are thus illegal to possess, transfer, or own.

Finally, a use for the clunky pile of Kriss Vector guns with fixed stock adapters….

The silver lining to this turd is that it so blatantly violates Bruen, Heller, and McDonald that the Supreme Court will grant cert if toilets Pritzker fights it and has the potential to make all AWB laws unconstitutional.

Seems like a Mini-14 would comply with that part at least. With the regular stock, the hand is behind the action, not below it. Of course, the Mini-14 fails on other items.

    If you draw a horizontal line through the action does any finger besides the trigger finger fall below that line?

At the end of the Day, none of this non-Constitutional shit matters. They still have to send the thugpigs door-to-door, and/or put Checkpoints on the Roads. Either way, the Shooting Starts, and the thugpigs are Outnumbered and Outgunned.
