Illinois –-( Australia is the darling of the gun control crowd because, except for a few sport shooting activities, guns are banned.

Self-defense is unheard of for the most part. We can all see how well that worked out with the café shooting earlier this week.

This is another case of how “Gun Free Zones” kill innocent people.

On the national scene, the Senate has approved the very anti-gun Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. Most of his career has been focused on gun control. We will now see the office of the Surgeon General push the anti-gun agenda. The Surgeon General can direct a lot of government agencies and their funds to shove the gun control agenda down our throats. The only Republican vote was Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois.

The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (UNATT) takes effect on Christmas Day (Merry Christmas gun owners), but I don’t think it has much chance of passing the Senate.

The problem is some U.S. government agencies [and the Obama Administration] will treat the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty as if it has passed the United States Senate.

If you haven’t visited the ISRA website lately you should. The website is changing (for the better) with daily updates. The ISRA Academy has 24 classes listed so far. Please check it out.

I have to compliment the Illinois State Police (ISP) on a great job reissuing an ICCL because of an address change; one of our members made the change on Thursday, December 11, 2014, and his new card was in the Monday morning mail. Give credit where credit is due!

Thanks for being a member or supporter.

@Peter – I’ll enjoy my freedom of choice to own a gun while you ponder statistics. Maybe you can do a statistical analysis of Japanese air bag deaths in Australia vs ‘The Colonies’?


Wasn’t it gun free when it was a penal colony?


From Australia:

The US homicide rate is 10 times the Australian homicide rate.

Your advice” will be credible when your homicide rate is less than ours.
Until then you just appear ridiculous.
(when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail)


When the problem is a nail, wishful thinking and hoping really, really hard won’t solve it.


@ Peter
The homicide rate may be higher in the U.S., but I would rather have the freedom to use a gun
to protect myself and my family. If that is appearing ridiculous, so be it. I fully believe in the
Constitution of the United States, and firmly stand by the meaning of “Live free or die”.


The U.S. has x10 the population too


You can bet if the dictator has his way by the first of the year he will push an executive order proclaiming that this country no longer has the right to keep and bear arms. He is pushing for the same thing that Australia has, then he will turn around and turn his moooslime people loose on the country and we will see mass killings all over the place. The only thing we can do is watch what he does next and them do the opposite.
