I really hope to see lots of you guys there!

Also, please sign-up to talk. Even if you dislike public speaking, just saying something like "I support the opening of the gun range. I think it's a positive thing for your community's economy" helps a lot. 

 

WHAT:  Niles Illinois Village Council Meeting

 

WHEN:  Tuesday, 22 July 2014, 7 PM (be there at 6:15 to get a good seat)

 

WHERE:  Niles Council Chambers, 1000 Civic Center Drive, Niles, IL

Remember the last time there was a time to add comments before a board of some kind. All the pro-rights crowd got the so-called 'choice' early spots, and the anti's glommed onto the last few speaking slots.....

 

 

Guess who's lies were still in the board's minds without being refuted just before the vote.

 

DO NOT claim all the early slots for comments. Grab a bunch of the last slots to be able to show the anti's for what they are, liars.+

Lee Goodman will be there, I got this from him today:

 

Stop the Spread of Suburban Gun Shops

 

C0untZer0,

The residents of the Village of Niles, Illinois need your help to keep a gun peddler from setting up shop in their town. They have been voicing their opposition as the application to allow guns to be sold near a school has worked its way through the bureaucracy. This Tuesday, July 22 at 7:00 pm, the village board is scheduled to take a final vote on the application. 

Please attend the meeting to show your solidarity with the people of Niles who do not want their town to become a hub for gun trafficking. The facts are clear – the more guns are available, the more people will be shot. A gun store anywhere is a public safety hazard to every nearby community. 

The meeting will be held at the Niles Village Hall, 1000 Civic Center Drive, Niles (at Oakton & Waukegan). Please show up early to get a seat.

I hope to see you there.

Lee Goodman

Too bad the opposition is a minority in town Lee Goodman. Please stay home and worry about your own town . We got this. We want it and we need it.
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Had to give my 4 year old the bad news that I won't be able to attend his swim lesson. I hated doing that as I'm the only one that gets in the water with him after class because mommy is taking care of the baby.

I have a 3 Page outline for my testimony, complete with visual aides, reports, graphs, etc to discredit the anti's.

It's indoors. It has a diving board. That's the part he loves most. He's 4 and just learning how to dive head first of the board.

No yelling at the board members if they're taking notes on their laptop and don't appear to be listening intently to what you are saying... :)

I can't make it because of a rather significant conflict of interest, but I have a small piece of advice: be nice, be reasonable, and be respectful. Some of the players in the opposition are a lot more reasonable than you would suspect and aren't really antis.
