WOW CAN YOU DIG IT!

WOW CAN YOU DIG IT!

By Don Bekeleski

                                                                                                 Wow, Can You Dig It?!

Everyone knows Patrick Henry best for, “Give me liberty, or give me death.”  But the American Revolution’s greatest orator also said, “The great object is that every man be armed" and "everyone who is able may have a gun."

It makes great sense because an unarmed people could become slaves to the government. In other words, don’t trust a government that removes your right and then we should do something legally to stop its governing.

LOOK AROUND YOU

LOOK AROUND YOU

By Don Bekeleski

                                                                                                    LOOK AROUND YOU

It’s Christmas time but somehow not the same as the ones before!  There are a lot of people that have lived in the fifties, sixties and seventies that now look at the world situation and a rumbling feeling in the pit of their stomach bothers them every day. Ask any of them and they will answer yes.

Those were years when America was a great place to live. People went to work and actually enjoyed driving to and from work. It gave them time to think about what they were going to do when they got home or maybe on the weekend.

IT HAS PROVEN ITSELF & WHERE ARE THE NAYSAYERS!

I AM SURE YOU ALL RECALL WHEN WE WERE TRYING TO PASS CONCEAL CARRY IN THIS STATE AND ALL THE NAYSAYERS WERE SCREAMING THAT THERE WILL BE BLOOD IN THE STREETS!

People would be shooting each other over parking spaces and there would be shootings over everything, because every CC holder will think he or she is a cop.  Now that we have a few years behind us with conceal carry the law of the state, none of that has come true!

A FEW THINGS THAT NEED FIXING

A FEW THINGS THAT NEED FIXING

By Don Bekeleski

A FEW THINGS THAT NEED FIXING 

There are a couple things I wish would get fixed soon. One is to get rid the ridiculous tax on ammunition that the Cook County board has put on ammunition in that county.  There is a bill in Springfield “HB 4348” introduced to eliminate this. It can’t happen soon enough. Cook County does everything it can to discourage gun ownership.  Every one that I talk to told me they were not buying ammo in Cook County anymore.  They have placed 5 cents per bullet on all larger ammo than 22 cal.  They have placed a one cent tax on every 22 cartridge you buy.  People said this is ridiculous and I agree.

ISRA-PVF and ISRA FEDPAC release their combined 2016 Sportsman's Election Guide for ISRA members

Dear ISRA Member:

Today the ISRA PACs for state and federal elections released their combined 2016 Sportsman's Election Guide to ISRA Members.

The guide indicates which candidates are most closely aligned with Illinois firearm owners on important issues. 

"Endorsed" candidates have a sustained legislative record of support for the right to keep and bear arms. "Preferred" candidates are either new candidates, or candidates who have a legislative record that is generally supportive of gun rights. In cases where "No Preference" is indicated, the directors have determined that both candidates are equally good, equally bad, or not enough is know about the candidate's position on gun rights to make a determination.
