I'm planning on going Tuesday. Anyone else from Chicago going? This will be a first for me. What can I do? What does testifying involve? Evil thrives when good men do nothing. I want to do something but I'm not sure what. Any advise will be helpful.

I'd go with you, but there is no way I can get off work for any of those dates. Thanks for posting and trying to do something.

Good luck. Sorry I can't help ya, I'm kind of far away.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
