OPPOSE SB0233 Amendment 1
Witness slips and phone calls to your Illinois State
Senators are needed.
Senate Bill 0233 is a shell bill so Amendment 1 becomes the bill. Please note: the title of the bill is “Safety
Tech” but that no longer matters,
only the Amendment matters. SB0233
A1 makes it a civil rights violation if a local government DOES NOT license gun
dealers. This is a terrible bill in other respects as well so the whole
bill should be opposed.
Please call your State Senator immediately.
We are currently waiting for an additional shipment of the limited edition 2017 IGOLD lapel pin. These very popular pins are not due to ship until the middle of May. Please be assured you will receive your pin(s) as soon as we receive them. We greatly appreciate your patience.

It is with great regret that I inform you of the passing of Otis McDonald. Otis was 79. I have always considered Otis as one of those people who lived everyday bravely and was not a hero because of one event but was a hero every day of his life.

CHICAGO, April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association regarding the passing of Otis McDonald:
It would have been understandably easy for Otis McDonald to just kick back and enjoy his golden years. Nobody would have blamed Otis one bit for wanting to savor the intangible riches that a long and eventful life has to offer – time with family and a good chuckle or two with friends. It would certainly be fair for one to ask why the heck a man in his seventies would want to launch a challenge against the hallmark achievement of one of the nation's most powerful political organizations.
Accessories to (Your) Murder
When it became inevitable that Illinois would finally enact concealed carry, leaders of the pro-self defense movement began preparing for the political and legislative backlash that was sure to follow. After all, the gun-grabbers had invested a lot of money and political capital into stalling Illinois' efforts to become the 50th state permitting citizens to defend themselves. Oddly, some within the anti-self defense camp believed that, pass or fail, Illinois' concealed carry efforts would be the catalyst needed to spark a nationwide repeal of concealed carry laws.
So here we are in late March and the anti-CCW barrage is well underway at the Illinois Capitol. Gun-grabbing legislators are tripping all over themselves to introduce legislation to eliminate advantages concealed carry gives the citizen over violent muggers, murderers, robbers and rapists. Once again, the gun-hating left has made its expectations abundantly clear. The gun-haters expect citizens to learn to live with and accept criminal behavior rather than expect criminals to conform to society's norms.
Here is a taste of just some of the anti-self defense legislation introduced during this session of the Illinois General Assembly.
