Illinois Gun Owners Must Wake Up and Act
Hey, Illinois gun owners! Wake the hell up and get moving!
This news came from the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA). A recent ruling from the 7th Circuit Court means Constitutional Carry of a firearm becomes state law unless the Illinois legislature passes acceptable legislation. Well that upset the Democrat power brokers in Illinois.
Mike Madigan is Chairman of the Illinois Democrat party and speaker of the Illinois House. That makes Mike a god, and this god is not happy. He’s ticked off because the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Illinois legislature must bow to constitutional authority and join the other 49 states by allowing citizens to carry defensive firearms. The speaker plans to introduce his own version of a concealed carry bill early this week where the only people who would be allowed to carry would be.. nobody. Although the details of Madigan’s concealed carry bill (HB1155) have not yet been released, those close to Madigan say the bill will be the most restrictive concealed carry legislation in the nation.
One insider termed Madigan’s proposed bill “the closest thing to no-carry at all.”
(Reminds me of southern Democrats after reconstruction and the 14th amendment. R)
What Illinois residents must do to to stop Madigan’s insulting bill-
1. Beginning first thing Monday morning, call your state representative and politely tell them that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you oppose Madigan’s insulting HB1155 and that you would like them to vote against the bill.
2. Pass this alert on to all your friends and family members in Illinois and ask them to call their state representatives as well.
3. Please post this alert to any and all Internet blogs or bulletin boards to which you belong.

Man, it must make a local god angry when he finds out he can’t make it rain.
