DO NOT PUT YOUR FAMILY SECURITY ON THE BACK BURNER
EVENTS IN PARIS ARE JUST A WARM UP EXERCISE
YOU MUST ARM AND TRAIN YOUR FAMILY TO ENSURE SURVIVAL
People around the world were treated today to a brutal spectacle having its roots in political naivety, ignorance of history, and wholly misguided immigration policy. Does that sound familiar? It should, because it aptly describes not only to the French government, but the sitting U.S. administration as well.
If you are of the mind of, "...it can't happen here" then you are sorely deluded. The apparatus to launch a Paris-style bloodbath is already in place here in the United States. All these determined terrorists are waiting for is the go-head from their higher headquarters.
We may be only hours or even moments away from the news that dozens if not hundreds of Americans - just like you and your family - are laying dead or dying in a heap on the floor of some sporting, shopping or entertainment venue. We may be only hours or even moments away from hearing about how the police are looking for "...a few extremists" responsible from the carnage.
It's not a question as to whether this is going to happen here, because it will. The real question is whether you are prepared to stand and protect what is yours. Are you prepared and able to defend yourself and your family? When the inevitable moment of truth arrives, are you willing to stand and fight or will you be content to play dead - hoping desperately that it is not your day to die?
The survival of you and your family is not mere fodder for some analysis of the war on terror - it's a cultural imperative. As an American, you are very fortunate that you have a formula for survival and it's called the Second Amendment. However, the power of any right is directly proportional to how vigorously it is exercised. Left unattended, the rights you enjoy under our Second Amendment will wither away.
To better the chances of survival for you and your family, the Illinois State Rifle Association urges you to do the following:
Make sure every person in your family holds a FOID card and that all eligible family members hold Illinois concealed carry permits.
Assemble a family defense arsenal consisting of one or more semiautomatic rifles such as the AR-15; one or more 12-gauge pump action shotguns, and one or more semiautomatic handguns. If you do not have a family defense arsenal, this is a good weekend to begin putting it together.
Be sure that you and every member of your family have had sufficient training in the use and field servicing of the weapons in your family defense arsenal.
Be sure that you have sufficient quantities of the proper ammunition on hand to defend your family.
Resolve this weekend to get yourself and your family into a physical training regimen. Your physical conditioning may be the difference between life and death during a Paris-style attack.
Encourage your extended family and friends to develop plans for protecting self and family from the threat of terror our government takes so lightly.
You have to understand that this is not a battle you can hire someone else to fight for you. When the time comes, you may very well find yourself standing nose to nose with a guy intent upon obliterating you, your culture, and everything you hold sacred.
Are you prepared?
