As many of you are likely aware, there has been an effort in Illinois to pass resolutions in support of the Second Amendment at the county level for more than a year. Although two counties passed resolutions in 2003, the real effort to promote this program began last March, while pro-gun activists were traveling to IGOLD (Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day) in Springfield.
Currently, 82 of the states 102 counties have passed resolutions supporting the Second Amendment. In Lake County, there is a petition drive to promote passage of a resolution, which has already collected approximately 3,000 signatures.
In light of the recent Supreme Court of the United States ruling that the Second Amendment protects an individual right, many of the 20 remaining counties, including Lake County, should be interested in showing their support of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't
pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for,
protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend
our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it
was once like in the United States where men were free." -- Ronald Reagan
