Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- 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.Richard Pearson
