ISRA Calls for Nationwide Boycott of AON Insurance Products
CHICAGO, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following
was released today by the Illinois State Rifle
The ISRA is calling upon all lawful American firearm
owners to stop doing business with AON Corporation and
its subsidiaries. This call for a boycott comes after
published reports disclosed that AON is bankrolling a
fundraiser for the political arm of the nation's most
radical gun control organization. Not only is the
fundraiser being financed by AON, it is also being held
in a posh club atop AON's Chicago headquarters.
The October 4th event, which AON will hold on behalf of
the "Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence," will raise
money to fund the Brady Campaign's efforts to impose
severe restrictions on citizens' 2nd Amendment rights.
Such restrictions include bans on civilian ownership of
handguns, target rifles, and popular hunting firearms.
The Brady organization also seeks to shutter small
firearm retailers and prohibit law-abiding citizens from
using firearms to protect their homes and their
"By financing the Brady event, AON has delivered a slap
to the faces of millions of law-abiding firearm owners,"
said ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson. "With
AON's financial muscle behind them, the Bradys will
redouble their efforts to vilify and marginalize the
nation's lawful firearm owners and, ultimately, push for
the banning and confiscation of lawfully acquired
rifles, pistols and shotguns."
"Many of the nation's firearm owners hold personal and
business insurance policies with AON," continued
Pearson. "Many others who own small and medium-sized
businesses employ Hewitt to manage their employee
benefit programs. I'm calling upon the nation's firearm
owners who are AON/Hewitt customers to reconsider who
they choose to do business with. There are plenty of
other insurance companies and employee benefit managers
out there to choose from who are not in bed with the
people who are trying to take guns away from lawful
citizens. AON cares more about collecting premiums than
they care about respecting constitutional rights. Gun
owners should give AON the boot, today!"
The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful
and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a
century, the ISRA has represented the interests of
millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.
