Otis McDonald

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.

Otis McDonald Did the Right Thing

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.

ALERT - SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

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.
