Executive Directors Message

Richard Pearson

The anti-gun crowd always advances their anti-gun agenda by touting some situation which, of course, can only be solved by more restrictive gun control measures.  It doesn’t seem to matter that what they are proposing won’t work or, even worse, will have deleterious effects on law-abiding gun owners. They are purposely misleading people with legislation that is supposed to do one thing when they know it does something else.   One great example is the Red Flag laws that swept through the Illinois General Assembly a few years ago.  Red Flag laws were introduced in almost every state legislature and passed in many of them.  In Illinois, the Red Flag law passed with veto proof majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.  The Biden Administration is now pushing them in Congress.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - April 8, 2021

Today, the Biden Administration will initiate actions in regard to what they term, ”the gun violence epidemic”. Translated this means they will attack legal firearms owners and their firearms.  High on the list will be ARs with arm braces and 80 % finished receivers that allow individuals to make their own firearms. These are referred to using the scary term “ghost guns”.  For the record, criminals do not make their own guns, they steal them or obtain them by illegal means.  As for those who use arm braces many disabled shooters use arm braces.  Other agenda items include Model Red Flag Laws, calling on the Justice Department to issue annual reports on gun trafficking and the nomination of David Chapman as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.  Chapman Is a devout anti gunner and is senior policy advisor to the Gifford’s gun prohibition group. This nomination puts law abiding gun owners in the crosshairs.  The battle is coming.
