URGENT ALERT - YOUR ACTION NEEDED

OAK PARK TO CALL FOR NATIONAL BACKGROUND CHECKS
THAT ARE ALREADY SHOWN TO BE INEFFECTIVE

STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS - BE THERE TONIGHT JUNE 15TH

WHAT: Village of Oak Park Special Board Meeting

WHEN: Monday, June 15, 2015, 7:00 PM

WHERE: Village Hall, 123 Madison St. Oak Park, IL

The Village of Oak Park is once again ready to make a sweeping gesture against your gun rights, this time nationally. Fresh off their loss of their handgun ban and the introduction of state preemption, Oak Park is set to introduce a resolution calling for nationwide background checks on all transfers of firearms.

Illinois already runs regular background checks on FOID holders, and requires a separate background check on all transfers, with no effect on the crime that plagues Chicago and nearby suburbs like Oak Park. Instead of recognizing the value of good police work under their Police Chief Tanksley, Oak Park would rather send a message to Washington that additional futile and ineffective measures are needed nationally because they are not working in Illinois.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS

  1. Plan to be at the Oak Park Village Hall, 123 Madison St. Oak Park, IL , tonight, June 15th. You should plan to be there by 6:30 PM so that you get a good seat. If you can speak to the press or address the board, be sure to point out the ineffectiveness of Illinois' background checks on crime in Oak Park and Chicago.

  2. If you are an Oak Park resident, your attendance is especially important.

  3. Be sure to wear IGOLD, ISRA, or NRA shirts or hats to show your support for the 2nd Amendment.

  4. Please pass this alert on to your friends and family and tell them to be at the Oak Park Village Hall on June 15th at 6:30 PM.

  5. Please post this alert to any and all Internet blogs, bulletin boards, or social media sites to which you belong.

REMEMBER - GUN CONTROL IS A DISEASE AND YOU'RE THE CURE
