At the HYATT in CHICAGO???? Why would a gun rights organization book a convention in an enemy hotel in an enemy city?
I hope some participants vote against a similar meeting next year.

My thoughts zactly! Why in the world would anyone, especially POTG, want to contribute in any form or fashion to a marxist stronghold that not only welcomes criminal invaders, but protects them too? Personally, the thought of giving one dime to any business, or in taxes, makes no sense at all! Especially when the city of Indianapolis is nearby! And the State of Indiana is far more welcoming to us than Illinois.


I already asked the BoD of the NRA to shun all hotels, cities ad states that do not abide by the 2A, inasmuch as it is the enforcement provision protecting the other nine provisions of the Bill of Rights. Lt Col. Robert K. Brown (AUS, Ret.) of the NRA’s Board of Directors has conveyed my message. I urge ALL members of pro-2A organizations to light a fire under the seats of their respective board of directors’ members to enact a resolution to boycott all enemy hotels, cities and states!
