ISRA Thursday Bulletin - April 25, 2019

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) maintains the JPFO Gun Confiscation Clock. The clock now shows 12 minutes to midnight, a loss of two minutes.  The reason for this is the introduction of H.R. 8 and HB 1112 in the United States House of Representatives.  Last week I referred to the anti-gun pushes in the traditionally pro-Second Amendment States.  This is what happens when gun owners take things for granted.

The Gun Sanctuary County movement which started in Effingham County, Illinois has now spread throughout the country.  In Washington State two more counties have declared themselves Gun Sanctuary Counties.  Here in Illinois, Carroll County has now joined the ranks of the resistance.  More are pending.

In my last Thursday Bulletin, I spoke about our most recent Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day (IGOLD) but failed to mention one quite impressive element.  One of our faithful members, Joyce Lindelof, 91 years young, not only attended IGOLD, but marched to the Capitol along with many of you.  Joyce has been an active ISRA member for many years.  We can all learn a lot from her dedication to our Second Amendment rights.  Thank you Joyce and we hope to see you next year!

IGOLD 2019 is now nestled into the history as one of the best we have ever had.  I want to thank all those who attended, the fabulous volunteers, staff, bus sponsors and organizations who helped make IGOLD 2019 a great event.  Our keynote speaker, David Keene, did a wonderful job and will be a tough act to follow.  This year’s March to the Capitol was a spectacle to behold.  The March was a sea of gold that seemed to flow down Capitol Avenue.  We were aided by beautiful sunny weather and temperature in the 60s.  There is no question that things went well for us this year.

In only six days one of the most important events in the Legislative Session will occur, Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day (IGOLD).  This is the best chance for law-abiding gun owners to show how important our Second Amendment rights are to us.  IGOLD could not come at a more opportune time.  I expect legislation to begin to move in a few weeks.  Now is the time to show legislators how dedicated we are to preserving our Second Amendment rights.

On Sunday, March 10, 2019, a pro-Second Amendment Rally was held in Effingham, Illinois, with 1602 people attending.  I have never seen a rally this large and enthusiastic outside of IGOLD.  It is very important that everyone possible attend IGOLD on Wednesday, March 27th.  The rally in Effingham is indicative of what is going on in Illinois outside of Chicago.  When HR0101 came up, the resolution to separate Chicago from the rest of the State, the cheers were long and loud.  It is not that Downstaters hate the people in Chicago, it is that they hate being ruled by Chicago politicians and their country bumpkin attitude toward the rest of the State.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - March 7, 2019

When any event happens where lives are lost, we all wonder what happened, could this have been prevented, who didn’t do their job, was the system at fault and a variety of immediately unanswerable questions.  Such was the case in the Aurora shooting a few weeks ago.  Answers to these situations are complicated and don’t pop up like your morning toast.
