I believe it would be helpful to post a list of pro gun candidates and the phone/email/physical address of their campaign headquarters so all the people reading here could contact the campaign staff and volunteer to help. Helping someone to get elected goes farther than just letters asking someone to vote for or against something. It certainly goes farther than just sounding off on this and other forums.

 

Some may be able to write checks to the campaign or talk others into writing checks. Others are not in that position but volunteering to walk precincts, or make phone calls, or just sort stuff will be remembered. You might even help someone you like win instead of lose their race.

 

I'm sure Illinois Carry can supply those lists and make them a sticky here.

Marilyn Smolenski is running for the 55th district in and around Park Ridge trying to unseat a long time anti-gun Machine politician.
She needs your help.

https://marilynforstaterep.com/

She is a very pro 2A candidate and an entrepreneur who makes and sells CCW cloths and accessories for women.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

Mark has a post that might be good starting point for identifying the candidates, non contested races, etc

Republican Gordon "Jay" Kinzler challenging Deb Conroy (D) in 46th State Representative district.

Conroy is endorsed by GPAC and Giffords. She has had multiple terms and it is time for her to go do something else.

CONTACT THE CAMPAIGN
EMAIL: info@kinzlerforillinois.com / BY MAIL: P.O. Box 5581 Glendale Heights, IL 60139 / BY PHONE: (847) 834-4136

CAMPAIGN OFFICE ADDRESS

EDIT: So I read there is a video of Team Conroy removing Kinzler yard signs. And I've seen Dem mailers screaming about how Kinzler is worse than Trump! Maybe he's got a chance.

Marilyn Smolenski is pro gun and running against Madigan lackey Marty Moylan in house district 55, which includes Des Plains, Elk Grove, Park Ridge and part of Chicago.

If you’re in Chicago or near northwest Cook County this is a great campaign to help.

We are canvassing this weekend and next.

PM me if interested; I am involved in the campaign.

Just walk into any campaign office and introduce yourself and say I'd like to help. 

 

I've done it before and everyone in the room stuffing envelopes, making calls and such will stop what they're doing and just stare at you in shock.  The person in charge will probably ask what you'd like to do.  I knew what I wanted to do and it was to put up yard signs for people who had requested them.  Got a list of addresses and loaded my truck full of signs and put them up for a couple of days.  Was over 15 yrs ago and my guy lost, but to this day the guy still appreciates me walking in off the street and offering what I could to help.

 

Walked into Oberweis's office in the Gov. primary race and got walked into his office to meet him and was given a title(unpaid of course) before I left.  Might still have the nice magnetic name tag they gave me.  I was an extra in one of his commercials too on the dairy assembly line.  Was called back by his personal asst. to help in his first State Rep run, but declined since I'm not in his district.

You can lend a hand in any district. We can use your help if you are interested and want to help a race that is winnable.

I went to a dinner/talk event for Republican candidate Tonia Khouri in the 49th District this evening.  Tonia is running for the vacated seat held by longtime Republican, Mike Fortner.  I can emphatically say that I endorse Tonia.  I specifically asked her about 2nd amendment rights (she is a NRA and ISRA member and a concealed carry licensee) and without hesitation promised me (haha, politician promises :fear:  ) that she would not vote for any limiting gun registrations such as magazine size limits, "assault weapon" bans, etc.  Her subsequent response was that those gun regulations will do nothing as they don't address the source of the problem!  *finally someone that gets it*

 

If you are in the 49th district, make sure you get out and vote for Tonia.  Not only is she a solid proponent for 2A issues, she is an overall fantastic conservative candidate who I believe can help right the ship in Springfield.  We need many more like her.
