Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day - IGOLD, has seen huge success since its inception. At IGOLD 2008, over 2500 sportsmen, hunters, shooting competitors, and most importantly of all, supporters of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms joined together in an overwhelming show of unity and marched down Capitol Avenue to the State Capitol in Springfield to individually lobby their legislators, urging them to protect Illinois citizens' right to keep and bears arms.

All Illinois gun owners are invited to join in IGOLD.  Get there anyway that you can!
