Gun sales are breaking records month after month. The number of new firearm owners grows by the thousands not only in Illinois, but everywhere. These new gun owners understand that what we are seeing in the streets may soon come to their front door. Everyone needs to get their head out of the sand and get ready. The new gun owners need training and so do a lot of the old gun owners, by the way. Every instructor, NRA, USCCA, and Concealed Carry, needs to be offering and advertising classes right now. These people need your help and you need to be stepping up to the plate. The ISRA is developing a list of instructors throughout the state. If you are an instructor and want to be on that list, please get you credentials together. We will be calling for them around July 1, 2020.

The Minneapolis City Council is leading the way on defunding the Minneapolis Police Department. There are a few other cities following behind. These police departments will be replaced by some form of community public safety committee which will reflect the values of the community. What does that mean? That means the mob will run the show and, so far, they have only shown the willingness to destroy, not build. They shout and complain but with no experience or even desire to maintain order. This idea and these people are trouble and they want to be trouble; if they succeed we are headed for a dark future. What will happen if the police are defunded is that a vacuum will be created. The mob says the police roll will be filled by the so called Public Safety Committees and Social Workers. What that means is that if you or someone in your family is robbed, beaten, raped, or murdered, the social worker will commiserate with you or tell you how sorry everyone is and the perpetrators will get a good talking to if they are ever caught.
