ISRA Annual Sighting-In-Day

ISRA Annual Sighting-In-Day

10/19/2019

The ISRA Annual Sighting-In-Day (SID) will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019, from 9:30-3:30.  The ISRA Range offers this event every year as a public service to the community.  Aside from sighting-in your firearms, we provide this service in the interest of firearm safety.  We check in all firearms and make sure the ammunition is correct, sights are mounted properly and make certain you know how to operate your firearm.  While Sighting-In-Day is designed for hunters, we have many people who have purchased a firearm but have never fired it.  They are also welcome to come spend the day and see our Range.  This is a chance for the ISRA to meet the gun owning community.

Agenda for Lobby Day - Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Agenda for Lobby Day - Tuesday, October 29, 2019

10/29/2019

The Illinois State Rifle Association will sponsor a scaled down version of IGOLD on Tuesday, October 29th.  The venue for the meeting is the Howlett Building Auditorium which only holds about 500 people.  The purpose of this event is to stop in and see your State Senator and ask them to vote NO on SB1966.   If it passes the Senate, the Governor will surely sign it.  As long as you are there, take time to go see your State Representative.  If you are unable to be present, please call your State Senator and State Representative from your home or work.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - October 17, 2019

by Richard Pearson

The first Veto Session is scheduled for October 28th, 29th and 30th.  Monday, October 28th, is the day to gather all legislators.  The realization will start on Tuesday, October 29th.  The mini IGOLD will be held on Tuesday, October 29th, 2019.  We will begin in the Howlett Building Auditorium at 9:00am, give a legislative update and overview of our goals, and a briefing on lobbying the Legislators before heading to the Capitol to lobby.  The Howlett Building is on the south end of the Capitol Complex.  You will need to enter through the east entrance of the Howlett Building or the east entrance of the Capitol Building.  The east entrance of the Capitol Building may be easier because they have more scanners.  These are secured entrances so be prepared to go through a security check.  It would be a good idea to bring a Ziploc bag to put your keys, wallet, pens, and change in when you pass through security.  This will make it easier on both you and the security guards in order to keep things moving.  Please leave your pocket knife in your vehicle.

SAF Seeks SCOTUS Review of Important Illinois Carry Case

10/11/2019

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation has petitioned the Supreme Court of the United States to review a case challenging the State of Illinois’ ban on concealed carry by non-residents, asserting that without high court review, “virtually all Americans will be deprived of their full Second Amendment rights while in the State of Illinois, based on nothing more than their state of residence.”

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - October 10, 2019

by Richard Pearson

Most of us meander through life changing gradually as we meet people and entertain new ideas.  Every once in a while, we meet a person or an idea in life that causes us to take a sharp 90 degree turn in our life.  We may not even realize it right away until we view it through a perspective of our own history sometime later.  This can be a teacher, someone we work with, an acquaintance or just anyone.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - October 3, 2019

by Richard Pearson

Somehow 2019 seems to be flying by.  Archery deer season has already started.  Most places still have plenty of crops in the field and things may be tough for bow hunters but that may help the gun hunters.  Harvesting has begun but the places are spotty.  Much of the corn crop was planted late so it is common to see a brown field next to a green field.  Add to that, the problem of very wet conditions so everything will be localized.  Deer will be moving, particularly at night, when the moon is up.  There is a full moon on the 13th so a week either side of that date will be dangerous.  Be careful when you drive.
