URGENT ALERT – YOUR ACTION REQUIRED
FREEDOM UNDER FIRE THIS WEEK IN SPRINGFIELD
Contact Your Representatives and Complete "Witness Slips"
The Illinois House Judiciary Committee has announced a pair of hearings on proposals to eliminate 2nd Amendment rights here in Illinois. Information on these two committee hearings is as follows:
1. Tuesday, 19 February, at Noon in Room 114 of the State Capitol Building, Springfield.
2. Friday, 22 February, at 10:00 AM, Room 600, Bilandic Building, 160 North LaSalle St., Chicago
During each of these hearings, committee members will be debating just how they plan to eliminate private firearm ownership in Illinois. They will certainly be discussing means to ban and confiscate 85% of the firearms currently owned by Illinois citizens. They will also be discussing how to confiscate magazines holding more than 10 rounds. Other topics of debate will also include “universal licensing and registration,” shutting down gun shows, and restricting concealed carry.
It is critically important that law-abiding firearm owners flood both committee meetings. Otherwise, anti-gunners will take control of the meetings with disastrous results for freedom loving citizens. Be sure to get to the meeting rooms at least a half hour early to ensure that you get a seat. Be sure to wear IGOLD shirts and hats. If you see members of the media there, approach them and tell them you are a law-abiding gun owner and you do not support further gun control.
If you cannot attend either of these meetings, they please complete an on-line witness slip for each meeting by going to these two sites:
Contact your representative in the Illinois House and urge him or her to join you in not supporting any further gun control in Illinois. This is especially important if your representative has changed since the last election.
