I made my call and everyone else needs to do their part to stop this madness and try and prevent these bans from going into effect. Call your state senator and urge them to vote against house bills 815 and 1263. They will be voting tonight!

These (Expletive Deleteded) just will not give up...
Well neither can we...

LATE BREAKING ALERT – NEXT VOTE ON SEMI AUTO BAN WILL TAKE PLACE SUNDAY
YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED
After getting nowhere in the Senate, the gun controllers have taken their
campaign to destroy your rights to the Illinois House. Earlier today,
Amendment #1 to SB2899 was introduced in the Illinois House of
Representatives. Sponsored by rabidly anti-gun Rep. Eddie Acevedo, the
amendment would do two things to you:

1. It would pick your pocket to pay for the confiscation and destruction of your own guns.
2. It would ban more than 50% of the rifles and more than 80% of handguns owned by Illinois citizens.

THIS BILL WILL BE VOTED ON BY THE HOUSE JUDICIARY 1 COMMITTEE ON
SUNDAY AFTERNOON – YOU MUST ACT NOW!
To help save your guns, please contact the following Representatives and
politely tell them that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you do
not support SB2899 and that you expect them to vote the amendment down.

1. Rep. Elaine Nekritz,. (217) 558-1004 and (847) 257-0450
2. Rep. John Bradley, (217) 782-1051 and (618) 997-9697
3. Rep. Jill Tracy, (217) 782-8096 and (217) 223-0833
4. Rep. Michael Connelly, (217) 782-8028 and (630) 579-4848
5. Rep. Dwight Kay, (217) 782-8018 and (618) 307-9200

URGENT ALERT – FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY
LISA MADIGAN FILES CHALLENGE TO APPEALS COURT RULING ON CONCEALED CARRY
As many of you have heard by now, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has filed a
challenge to last month’s appeals court ruling that struck down Illinois’ ban on concealed
carry. That decision was rendered by a 3-member panel of the appeals court. Madigan
has petitioned the full court of appeals to review the panel’s ruling.

We fully expected Madigan to file this challenge. We see it as a desperate attempt to
capitalize on the Newtown murders. We are confident that Madigan’s challenge will go
down in flames and the clock on the 180-day implementation of concealed carry will
continue to tick.

No action is required of you at this time. This alert is for your information only. Just
rest assured that the ISRA is prepared to meet this challenge and will faithfully represent
your interests before the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
WARNING: DO NOT make any calls to the federal judges or you might jeopardize our case.

If you would like to call Lisa Madigan and let her know that you do not appreciate her
efforts to leave you defenseless, go right ahead.

Please distribute this alert to your friends and please post it to any internet blogs or
bulletin boards to which you belong.

This is the letter I am sending to my Senators, Representative (US and
State Levels) and also to Ms. Madigan, Mr. Quinn and others as I deem fit.
If anyone wishes to use it as is or edit it for their own use, you have my
permission!

Senator Durbin,

I am writing this to you to voice my opinion as a Citizen of Illinois, Veteran of the US Navy and Desert Storm and as a voter.

From what I have heard in the news and on the internet; Senator Dianne Feinstein is proposing a sweeping gun ban. I am voicing my strong opposition to this and any legislation that would add any restrictions what so ever to firearm ownership. We, especially in Illinois, need to relax the current unconstitutional restrictions we have to date to allow all law-abiding citizens full access to firearms.

The Second Amendment was written to make clear that the private citizens of this Republic would have available the means to prevent Tyranny from oppressing its citizens. Any restriction of firearm ownership is a step toward Tyranny.

To quote the journalist, Tiffany Madison:

“As modern philosopher Roderick Long wrote, ‘Forbidding private citizens to own [common] guns while allowing police and soldiers to carry them is a violation of moral equality – a reserving of weapons to the powerful while denying them to the powerless.’

“For an administration determined to ‘equal the playing field’ and ‘promote fairness’, is it a contradiction to advocate removing beloved, legally-acquired firearms from citizens while civil servants are allowed to own them?

“Additionally, the Second Amendment does not safeguard sport or hunting. The intention of the Second Amendment was to provide the people with means to protect their rights against individual and organized aggressors both foreign and domestic. The Second Amendment is not a grant to the people, but a restriction on the federal government. To Americans familiar with history and the Constitution, suggestions otherwise are blasphemous.

Please support me, your constituent, in strong opposition to any new firearms restrictions of any kind.

Sincerely,

SPECIAL ALERT - YOUR ACTION REQUIRED

GUN CONTROLLERS PLAN RECRUITMENT AND ORGANIZATION RALLY



The gun control movement is on a roll in the northern suburbs. They will be holding a rally to recruit and organize new gun grabbers into their campaign to take your guns away from you.

IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ATTEND THIS RALLY!

As a patriotic firearm owner, you have a responsibly to defend our Constitution by challenging those who would tear down our Bill of Rights. If the gun controllers are left unchallenged, then they and their friends in Springfield will walk all over YOUR constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

EVENT DETAILS

WHEN: Sunday, January 20, 2013, 2:00 PM

WHERE: Wilmette Public Library, 1242 Wilmette AVE, Wilmette, IL

WHO: This event is being hosted by a band of gun controllers including Mark Walsh of the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence; Lee Goodman of Stop Concealed Carry Coalition and; Jennifer Bishop of the Million Mom March. These people are the real deal - the hard core top dogs of the gun control movement. These are the people leading the charge to raid your gun safe and confiscate and destroy your guns. These are the people who want to prevent you from carrying defensive firearms. These are the people who don't care if you or your family members are raped, robbed and murdered by violent criminals. They only care about one thing - disarming you.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRO-GUN PEOPLE

1. Plan to be at the Wilmette Library between 1:00 and 1:30 so that you can get a seat. At past events like these, the anti-gunners try to play a game claiming that the room is "full" so as to deny entry to pro-gun people. Our aim is to ensure that there are more of OUR people there than THEIR people.

2. Be observant of abuses of your First Amendment rights by village officials. Get the name and title of any official who attempts to suppress your right of free association, assembly and speech.

3. If you have an I-GOLD t-shirt, hat, or badge, wear it! If you have an ISRA hat or an NRA hat, wear it!

4. If you see members of the media there, don't wait for them to come to you. Rather, actively approach them, tell them you are a law-abiding firearm owner, and then tell them that you adamantly oppose punitive gun control laws being proposed by the organizers, Obama, and Emanuel. Make sure the media hears our side of the story first, and often!

5. Bring your children, grand children, and other young people with you. They are the next generation of patriots. Let them see how effective grassroots organizing works! If there is a question and answer session, have your children ask the organizers why they want to leave kids and their parents defenseless against criminals.

6. Be polite, but be assertive. Do not let the anti-gunners shout you down. Defend your 2nd Amendment with passion. If you have a smart phone, video as much of the proceedings as you can.

7. Remember, this is our Lexington, this is our Concord. Be prepared to teach the gun controllers a lesson in Liberty.

8. Please share this Alert with your friends and family - encourage them to show up at the rally.

9. Please post this Alert to any and all Internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you belong.

REMEMBER - YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PRESERVING YOUR FREEDOM - IF YOU DON'T DO IT, NOBODY ELSE WILL.

Yeah but don't hold your breath. Emanuel the *** is trying to push more through everyday. And periwinkle don't even want to talk about that ***. We need to keep on our toes and jump all over anything that comes up. Right now they are trying to push the 48 hour law that can make honest gun owners criminals. Not good.

The states with good gun laws all have one thing in common. They are states with big NRA membership. They have well organized state gun lobbies. :)
