Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday, April 11, 2013 the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence held an anti-gun “rally” at the State Capitol.
But they didn't quite hit the mark – with less than 200 in attendance,(including Media) it looked more like a school field trip!
IGOLD 2013, an estimated 8000 marched in support of the Right to Carry and other Second Amendment issues. That day stands as proof that Illinois citizens support the Right to Carry and do NOT support more gun control! If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the IGOLD photo posted below is worth 8,000+ words!
ICHV claims they represent the “95%” of Illinois residents that want stricter gun control….So, if we look at the numbers….their less than 200 person turn out somehow represents 95% of the people of IL and our 8000 person turn out only represents the remaining 5%….Their numbers make as much sense as their rhetoric!
(Editors Note: The pitiful rally received extensive media coverage, almost as many media as protesters, but at IGOLD 2013 the Media was a no show.)
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.
