Sorry but this posting is late this month! This meeting has already occurred    

We will have Dave Lombardo for our guest speaker this month. Dave will be talking about lawsuits and trials dealing with firearms, how they work and what it's like to be called as an expert witness.  This is sure to be an interesting evening so come out and join us.  And, don't forget to bring a friend!



WCGR Gun Giveaway

       Will County ISRA member, Thomas Bryze, was the name drawn for the WCGR Gun Giveaway last month. Unfortunately, Thomas  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.


May Meeting


  Jeff Gregorec was our guest speaker last month. Jeff strongly stated you must have the mindset to not be a victim. That requires you to not be in the white code of alertness. You should always be in the yellow code. You should be at ease, but always be looking around and be aware of anything that is not perfectly normal. If you see something that looks somewhat abnormal, you need to go to orange code and be aware of a specific threat. If the situation escalates, you need to go to red code and react to the threat.

 If you are carrying a concealed weapon and it is grabbed, you must strongly pin his hand to the gun and move toward the center of the body and fling them away. They will have no choice but to follow; even a small woman can fling a larger man this way. more


Thank you to everyone who attended!


Chairman's Comments


   Well, the liberal, anti-civil rights gang (if it's not the rights they like) is strongly at it again. Mark Kelly, former astronaut and husband of former Arizona Representative Gabby Giffords, is parading all around the country trying to rid of us of the Second Amendment. Their group has invaded Illinois with six highly-paid, professional lobbyists trying to get HB1016 passed. It is probably one of the most strongly-worded bills to come out of committee in Illinois in a long time. They are attempting to make it almost completely impossible for a gun store to sell guns and stay in business in Illinois. I talked some about the details last month. Even with all the money and clout they threw at getting the bill passed, we were able to stop it from being passed…for now. We are grateful to Rich Pearson and the rest of our great lobbyists and to our great Illinois State Rifle Association members who took the time to call their representatives and to submit the witness slips more
