Thousands of Second Amendment Supporters Will March on Springfield, IL

USA -(Ammoland.com)- Mark this important date on your calendar. If you need to reserve a vacation day before the end of the year – DO IT NOW!

Because several pro-Second Amendment legislators lost in the recent statewide election, we will have an uphill battle when the General Assembly returns to Springfield for the new session in 2017.

Anti-rights legislators will be more determined than ever to disarm law-abiding citizens.

We know disarming innocent people does not make us safer. We know gun free zones are killing zones. It is important we lobby our legislators and Gov. Rauner.

It is important that we voice our opposition to any further restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.

It's important that we voice our support for:

  • Less restriction on where we can carry, so we can better protect ourselves and our loved ones.
  • Reducing the cost of concealed carry licenses, which is too high for many to afford.
  • Reciprocity with other states in order to protect ourselves when we travel in those states.

Even if you have already received your carry license, this is NOT the time to sit back and become lax! Those who have taken the training and gone through the licensing process are crucial to the fight and we need you to stand with us and be heard at IGOLD!

Save the date! Be there!

Wes:
Penna. constitution parallels the U.S. constitution. We are also an open carry state but I would not suggest it.

Illinois Constitution
SECTION 22. RIGHT TO ARMS
Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

So why do I need a carry permit?

Politicians stock and trade focuses on power, or more specifically remaining in power. America has allowed itself to be subject(ed) to the monopolistic two-party paradigm. While it is true that the two parties have purposefully drifted to the extreme ends of phyilosophies, branded as “conservative” and “liberal” (whatever these really mean), they agree 100% in writing legislation branded as “campaign finance reform” which restricts access to the ballot for all outsiders, citizens of less than wealthy means, and generally honest people who arent willing to sell their souls to the wealthy or powerful lobby groups. They also refuse to enact… Read more »

You can flood these communist people with all the faxes and emails you want. Illinois is a communist/socialist armpit just as NYC and large cities in the communist state of californication. Not until people with half a brain vote (in great numbers) in the state of Illinois will anything positive happen. Sorry about your luck bulldanggers HAHAHA.

John, you and a hundred million more wonder WHY FedGov fail at reeling in the states when they infringe upon our very clear right to arms. WHY is this? Because for generations WE have let them. And that is changing. But some states, Illinois amongst them, refuse to acknowledge this fact, that the right to arms accrues to ALL residents of ALL states equally (remember that 14th Article of Ammendment… it confirms this). Funny thing I noticed in the article.. SAVE THE DATE….. but nowhere do I find WHICH DATE…….. or are folks to simply show up on any random… Read more »

I do not understand. The constitution gives the states to legislate issues not designated to the federal government. The amendments are federal territory and not to be legislated by the states. The federal government should not allow the states legislative authority on these issues. In response to the second amendment the federal government should enforce the directive inherent to the amendment “shall not be infringed”. Simple.

Aye , but the lawyers are in the details. Simplicity does not spawn litigation and money for lawyers. If the waters can be muddied than its all for the better for tyrants and lawyers.
