ISRA Alert: Stand Up to Cook County!

ook County has been trying to crush gun owners right s for years. Even after Illinois passed the Concealed Carry law which preempted local ordinances Cook County continued to pass ordinances in violation of state law and our Second Amendment Rights. For example:

  • Cook County updated their semi-auto ban.

  • Cook County enacted an ordinance that required every firearm transfer be recorded with the Cook County Sheriff's Office. This included the parties names, make, model, and serial number of the firearm. This is clearly registration.

Cook County's attitude is that if you want your rights, sue us for them. Well, there are other ways we have to redress our grievances! Cook County is seeking statutory authority to reduce their pension responsibilities. If they do not get that authority from the State of Illinois their budget will be severely impacted. Too bad!

Call your State Representative and State Senator and tell them to OPPOSE the Cook County pension deal until they leave our Second Amendment Rights alone.

If you do not know who your State Representative or State Senator is, the Illinois State Board of Elections has an interactive search page here: www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx

If you already know who your State Representative and State Senator are and just need the contact info, you can find that here: www.ilga.gov/house & www.ilga.gov/senate.
