Right To Carry Gains More Support In Illinois
IL Farm Bureau brings 450,000 members and 3-4 more lobbyists to the battle!
Illinois –-(AmmoLand.com)- On Monday, December 7, 2009 IL Farm Bureau delegates gathered in Chicago voted overwhelmingly to support Right to Carry legislation in Illinois.
Earlier in the year Farm Bureau delegates from the White/Edwards County area submitted the issue to be considered by the Farm Bureau Policy and Development committee who then sought input from members on the issue of whether or not Illinois should join the other 48 states in the nation and pass a law providing for the lawful carry of a firearm for personal protection of self and family.
Doug Anderson, White County Farm Bureau manager, reported the majority of those offering input supported the issue which was then placed on the agenda for consideration by the delegates at the annual meeting.
The resolution endorsing Right to Carry passed with a large majority voting in favor of the measure. Right to Carry legislation will now be added to the list of issues Farm Bureau lobbyists will work toward advancing when the General Assembly returns to its regular session in January.
IllinoisCarry is proud our friends in the Farm Bureau see the importance of this issue. We are proud to have worked with them in providing data and background information on the success of Right to Carry in other states. And we are proud to have them join the fight for our right to self-defense in the state of IL!
Welcome, friends, welcome!
The IllinoisCarry forum was started in April 2004. The idea was that Illinois needed a central location to communicate ideas and information regarding 2nd Amendment issues in Illinois. There are many organizations in Illinois working to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. Working with these groups IllinoisCarry has become the central location for information and Action Alerts. IllinoisCarry will not endorse political candidates. We simply provide information so voters can make informed decisions. Our goal is to join the other 48 states that allow their citizens to carry concealed firearms. We encourage you to register on our forum and join the fight for your 2nd Amendment Rights in Illinois.
