Event Details

It is important that we put our best foot forward and present the best image of Illinois firearm owners - friendly, courteous, and respectful of the other attendees and our surroundings.  Suggested attire is casual/business casual. The rally is outside on the plaza, bring sunscreen if you are so inclined. There is a food court in the downstairs portion of the Thompson Center if you need to grab a quick bite before or after the event. We have been instructed to keep the entrances to the Thompson Center clear and also that we stay out of the street and not cause a traffic hazard.

There are many ways to get to the Thompson Center via public transportation:  CTA Trains and buses, Metra, Amtrak.  Go to for more details.


Additional volunteers are needed for ground crew at the event, and will meet at 10:00 at the stage on the plaza.  Contact Don Gwinn if you can help out, send mail to:
