ISRA Alert:
GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS

The good news is that rabid gun-hater Larry Suffredin lost his Democratic primary bid for Cook County State’s Attorney. His humiliating 3rd place finish should put the brakes on his aspirations for higher office for a while.

The bad news is that Larry Suffredin still sits as a commissioner on the Cook County Board where he’ll continue to push for a total ban on the sale and possession of firearms in Cook County.

Now that the smoke is clearing after the primary battle, we must continue to fight against the Suffredin county gun grab proposals. Your help is badly needed in this effort.


HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO HELP SAVE YOUR GUNS

1. Call the Cook County Commissioners listed below and POLITELY inform whoever answers the phone that you are a law abiding firearm owner and that Suffredin’s decisive defeat on Tuesday is a strong message from the people of Cook County that they do not support Suffredin’s gun control package. Politely tell the person on the phone that you would like to see commissioner from that district to vote against any and all gun control proposals that come before the county board.

2. Pass this alert on to all your gun-owning friends and ask them to call the Cook County commissioners as well.

3. Please post this alert to any and all Internet blogs, chats or bulletin boards to which you may belong.
