WCGR Gun Giveaway

        Will County ISRA member, Harold Highland, was the name drawn for the WCGR Gun Giveaway last month. Unfortunately, Harold was not present so we will draw another name this month. Remember, the winner must be present, be an ISRA member, have a valid FOID and comply with all local, state and federal laws.


July Meeting


 We had an interesting open forum meeting last month. Some of the top subjects were all of the recent police shootings and Black Lives Matter. Terry Kreimeier said he sure wouldn’t want to be a policeman in this day and age, where police are open targets just because they represent law and order. Police are vilified…until they are needed.

  Candidate Gary Good spoke about the need for good, honest candidates to represent us.  Illinois legislative issues affecting gun owners were discussed, as was the upcoming presidential election and how the eventual winner and new Supreme Court Justices will affect our rights.  Thanks to everyone who came to the meeting!


Thank you to everyone who attended!


Chairman's Comments


    I will start off with some great news. The first gold medal for the Olympics this year was won by the United States and was won for shooting! It was won by 19-year-old Ginny Thrasher. She was a first-time Olympian and she won it for the ten-meter air rifle event. She started shooting only five years ago, so being so successful for her first time at the Olympics is quite an accomplishment. Being that the USA won the first gold medal, you would think that it would be all over the news. But, surprise. It was mentioned, but in extremely short sound bites…and I just can’t imagine why. Maybe it does not fit the mainstream media (liberal) agenda that a young, pretty girl would actually shoot a GUN!

 Our world in the United States is being turned upside down quicker in the last several years than since it was founded about 240 years ago. Our moral fabric, including religion and ethics that the country was founded upon, is now considered wrong and heaven forbid if you don’t do and think what the press says is “politically correct”.
