SPECIAL ALERT - YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED

GUN GRABBING COOK COUNTY BOARD ATTACKS LAWFUL FIREARM OWNERS - AGAIN

CONTACT: Richard Pearson, Illinois State Rifle Association, (815) 635-3198

WEB SITE: http://www.isra.org

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle officially announced today her intention to pass the county's first round of ammunition taxes during this Friday's county board meeting. This initial tax will slap a penny a round on rimfire ammo and a nickel a round on centerfire ammo.\ According to Preckwinkle, the tax is being levied on gun owners in order to "...improve public safety." As a gun owner, you know what a joke that is.

This week's tax on ammo will kick off what is certain to be a string of taxes on guns and ammo designed to suppress your right to keep and bear arms. The intent of this tax and those to follow is to make shooting too expensive for the average citizen.

Although there is probably little you can do to stop the Cook County Board from passing the tax, there sure is plenty you can do to let the county board know that you are displeased.
