IGOLD was a big success last Wednesday. ISRA members, club
affiliates and members of other Illinois organizations
rallied in Springfield in a tremendous show of solidarity.
Now is the time, especially if you have strong feelings
about the fight we continue to face in Springfield and in
Cook County this year, to carry last week’s momentum
forward and attend the ISRA Annual Meeting this Saturday.
We’ll have a legislative briefing, and one from the ISRA-PVF,
as well as the “Shooter’s Showcase”, where you can meet
with experts from various disciplines. Of course, there’s
the Annual Meeting itself, and our Annual Banquet with
guest speaker Bob Barr.
If you’re an ISRA member, now is the time to take your
place among your fellow members, to stand with us. Show us
your face, share with everyone what’s important to you. If
you’ve never been to the ISRA Annual Meeting before, the
first time that I attended was a sea change for me. The
officers and directors were no longer just a list of names
in the newsletter, having met and talked with them, they
were now very real to me. I left knowing that I was not a
membership number on a mailing list, this was my
organization and I was an important part of it.
If you’re not an ISRA member, we welcome you to come and
see who we are: concerned gun owners, your brothers and
sisters in arms. If you like what you see, you’re welcome
to become part of our organization.
I urge you to drive to Naperville and attend the
ISRA Annual Meeting.
