Illinois! IGOLD

Itís time to personal lobby for protection of the 2nd amendment, in the Great state of Illinois. Last year we had over 3,000 freedom loving patriots show up at the capital building in Springfield. Just at the right time too. The critters inside were gaining support for an override of the governors veto of high capacity magazines. The support vaporized when us commoners showed up. However, this year, Itís going to be a rough ride, with all the new leftist joining with the old communist. The new Governor has already signed a anti-2nd amendment law. Registration of assault weapons & magazine bans are presently in committee. We need lots of folks to show up. I will be there with my family of 10. Will you join us?

Good luck.

With the new regime, I suspect everything will fall on deaf, hateful, totalitarian ears.

Maybe so, however, we still have a voice. I will not sit back and watch, I will resist. Now is the time for peaceful resistance. When one citizen calls or emails, his representative, he is seen as one vote. When one citizen writes a letter, that is seen as 1 to 10 votes. When one citizen shows up during the legislative session, and talks to their representative face to face, they are seen as representing 100 to 1000 votes. They do take notice when thousands of constituents show up at their doorstep! We have power in numbers. If we all do a little, we can make a difference. And who knows, if they donít listen, itís a good dress rehearsal for next time, we will show up armed!

I have always been impressed at the organization and activism of the IL Rifle Association, they always seemed to do tons more than the NRA.

It was one group I gave money to that I felt actually DID positive things.

Sincerely, good luck with the IGOLD day. I know there were big turn outs in the past.
