ISRA Thursday Bulletin - March 18, 2021

On Monday, March 15th, I sent out an alert postponing the 2021 IGOLD event.  I know you are all as disappointed as I am.  I know many of you say “Have it anyway.”  That is easier said than done. Springfield is essentially locked down not just for us, but every other group.  No one is picking on us specifically.  IGOLD has a sterling reputation because it is well organized, focused and disciplined.  IGOLD is the largest group that goes to Springfield and causes the least problems. That goes a long way in Springfield and everywhere else.  It has taken years to build a good reputation but it only takes moments to destroy it.  The next IGOLD is scheduled for April 6th, 2022.

As most of you know by now, the ISRA has filed the Luce v. Kelly case for the failure of the Illinois State Police to issue new Illinois Concealed Carry Licenses in the time prescribed by law.  The case was filed on Friday in Federal Court in the Northern District Eastern Division.  It will take some time before the State of Illinois answers the complaint.  The plaintiffs in the case are Nicholas A. Luce, Joseph R. Stacho III, David M. Rice, Jerry J. Robinson, Illinois State Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation.  We will keep you posted.

The bills are pouring out of the General Assembly.  Presently, we are tracking 175 bills and resolutions.  We will see a lot of movement on bills this week; however, we have learned the Illinois House has cancelled session for next week.  The Illinois Senate will be in.  One of the latest is SB2300.  SB2300 (Ann Gillespie (D-27 Arlington Heights) would put a 10% tax on so-called “assault weapons“ and “high capacity magazines”. This follows the pattern of ‘if you can’t ban them, tax them’ agenda.  Remember, the power to tax is the power to destroy.
