    The M1A is just one of the many firearms banned to most residents of that Demshevik strong hold, ILLinois. Some LE and active duty military might be able to purchase this rifle but will be required to register the firearm. Also banned in ILLinios are many other passive self defense equipment including body armour and helmuts. Why??? At some point ILLinios will make second wave of bans while the slow moving USSC has yet to grant a Writ of Certiorari on any of the oppressive laws in ILLinios.
