Illinois –-( Please join your fellow Illinois gun owners for the annual Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day (IGOLD) on March 10, in Springfield! This is your opportunity to lobby your lawmakers directly and make a positive impact for all Illinois gun owners. Do not miss the largest gun rights rally and Second Amendment lobbying event in Illinois history!

We need thousands of Illinois gun owners, hunters, sportsmen, and those who simply wish to defend their right to keep and bear arms to gather at the Prairie Capitol Convention Center – doors will open at 10:30 AM with the program set to begin at 11:45 AM. We will march down Capitol Avenue, rally on the Capitol steps, and then proceed inside to lobby legislators to make our presence known. There will be no mistaking that Illinois gun owners intend to stand up and speak out for our right to keep and bear arms in the state of Illinois! This will be one of the most important days of the year for Illinois gun owners!

    1. For those who want everything that is wrong with the Illinois gun laws to be fixed with one piece of legislation, get over it already. It won't happen with one bill. It took a long time for our gun rights to be stripped from us and it will take a few years to reign them back in. Politics operates by a 'give and take' set of rules. We are making progress on restoring many of our rights and this year we may actually get a vote on the floor for CCW. No matter how you feel about how the ISRA came down on an issue that you may not agree with, you should be a strong enough gun rights advocate to join the rest of us pro gun, second amendment, and CCW supporters in our rallly in Springfield on March 10th. If you don't, you are helping the anti gun supporters and legislators that hope you won't show up. We have the God given right to protect our lives against those who would take it from us. The goverment has no authority to legislate that right away from us. The ISRA is one of the most important gun rights organizations we have here in Illinois. Along with other great pro gun groups, the ISRA helps organize the IGOLD rally. This rally is for us, and every gun owner should be in Springfield to show solidarity and our belief that CCW needs to be passed in Illinois….THIS YEAR!! We are very close to getting this done. Now is not the time to nit pick everything ISRA does or doesn't do that meets with your approval. Get off your butt and be in Springfield. Be a part of the solution not the problem!

    2. I have been a supporter of IGOLD since day one but here is the reason I will not be there this year nor will I help with funding.

      Last year 7000 people attended IGOLD.

      They told their State Reps “DO NOT SUPPORT ANY GUN CONTROL”, 2 days later the gun lobby looked the other way and allowed HB5832 to be past in the Illinois House, a bill that mandates 1-3 yrs in prison if caught with a loaded firearm without a valid FOID card.

      Toward the end of the session the gun lobby supported a bill SB3421 that made a subtle change in Illinois law that actually saved the FOID card by allowing the State to seek federal grant money to up-grade the computer system used for the FOID card data base.

      The up-grade now allows Illinois to interface with federal data bases that include the Veterans disarmament list, no fly list and terrorist watch list.

      These list are now part of the disqualifiers for the FOID card.

      Thank You Illinois Gun Lobby you will receive NO money from me until the FOID card is Repealed.
