It is important that gun owners be there at these meetings to voice their opposition by addressing the board. No matter where you live, you should plan on attending the closest meeting to you. Bring a friend or two. Wear your IGOLD hats and t-shirts. If you see members of the media, approach them and tell them that you are a law-abiding gun owner who is sick and tired of having others carelessly work to destroy your rights. Be sure to arrive early to ensure that you gain entrance to the meeting.

Special Note - Highland Park: The Highland Park meeting is now higher profile, and is expected to be packed with anti-gun zealots sent by the 10th Congressional District Democrats, an organization long dedicated to removing your right to keep and bear arms. Please attend this meeting if you can. Get there at least 1 hour early, please.

Veterans: Are you a veteran of our armed forces? Your oath and your prior service to our country gives you a unique vantage point to speak from. Please attend these meetings and provide feedback to the local officials.

Please be aware of what's going on in your community. If your town was not listed here, please contact your local city government and inquire about the next council meeting and the latest agenda.
If you hear of more local attempts to pass an "Assault Weapon Ban" in another community, please contact the ISRA office at 815-635-3198 or send an email to the ISRA Hotline (hotline@isra.org) and pass along the info. Alert members have helped ISRA to keep you informed.
