Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- 1. Keep in mind that the Illinois General Assembly goes back into session on January 29th. After that, it will be Katie bar the door when it comes to anti-gun bills being introduced.
Please keep a careful watch on your email for alerts on legislative updates. We may need you to take action immediately to counter the trickery of the gun controllers in the legislature.
2. Gun shops and gun shows report very heavy traffic this weekend, in part due to last Saturday being “Gun Appreciation Day” and the general mood of the nation.
3. Thanks go out to everyone who attended the gun control meeting in Glenview on Sunday. It was good to hear that gun-rights supporters’ numbers were so overwhelming that the fire department had to restrict admittance to the auditorium. So many gun rights supporters showed up so early that gun controllers got locked out of their own meeting! We have heard from a few people who had never been to such a meeting in the past. They were shocked at the level of disrespect for the U.S. Constitution displayed by the gun-controllers who organized the event. One attendee compared the hatred for American traditions spewed by the gun-controllers to the rhetoric he heard from Taliban prisoners he guarded in Afghanistan.
Our people were shocked further by the unabashed lies and misconceptions about private firearm ownership that were pushed by the gun-controllers who spoke. The impression that one attendee took away from the meeting was that the gun-controllers hate law-abiding firearm owners more than they dislike the people who commit violent crimes.
Again, thanks to everyone who turned out for the Glenview event. The gun controllers need to understand that preservation and protection of gun rights is not a joke to us and that we will challenge them every time they attempt to attack the constitution.
