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.

In the heat of all the anti-gun activity in Springfield, it is important to remember the Illinois State Rifle Association is moving forward on the litigation front.  I am pleased to announce the suit against Cook County and their so-called assault weapons ban is again moving forward.  The case known as Wilson v Cook County will be argued before the Seventh Circuit on April 4th, 2019.  For those who might not recall, the Seventh Circuit is a Federal Court with the next stop being the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).
