The nation is divided.
 
Washington is divided.
 
Illinois gun owners must not be divided.
 
Whether you like the results of the election, dislike the results or are somewhere in between, if you're a gun owner in Illinois this is the time to find each other again - to find each other in the common casue of protecting and preserving our rights.
 
If you're already here, stay where you are.  We still need   The legislature will be back in less than a week.
 
If you're not part of us, join.  We need you too, perhaps now more than ever.
 
We've been through hard times in the past.  This is nothing new. Let's re-ignite the flames of passion we once knew so well, and get things done.

Let’s go.

You guys let us know what you need us to do. I hope it’s more than just writing letters.

We’re up against the proverbial wall. I know several retired teachers who have CCLs but voted Democrat because of the pension issue in Illinois. My union offers CCL classes and pushed the straight D ticket. The power of urban areas across the country will keep us in battle mode forever. What’s the next legislative step in Illinois?

DuPage County at one time was one of the most the most Republican Counties in the US. No longer
They Democrats moved out of Crook to escape the crime and corruption and brought the corruption with them.

Three local Republican politicians cast their lot with Madigan and cast anti-gun votes this last session. Two of them even took campaign donations from the Moms and bragged about it.

Nybo and Olson both lost. Curran kept his seat even though his D opponent is the niece of Cullerton
I guess the antis gave Nybo and Olson their money but not their votes.

Im stuck here for a minimum of another year; maybe two but long term I won't live in a ban state. If an AWB or mag ban is passed I can't put down roots in a ban state is the bottom line.

 

Until then im going to call me legislators even more, e mail more and be more involved than ever before

Yes. Sad day in our state and nation today. Years of quagmire ahead; but we've been there before. Bright spot is R holding Senate. Hopefully the courts will be stacked by the end of Trums first term.

I can remember when you couldn't find a Democrat in DuPage....

The town is starting to really bleed and over 10% of my income is for real-estate taxes, you can guess my opinion on that.

I was surprised at the number of gun owners that I know that don’t vote. They will complain all day long about losing their gun rights, but they won’t vote .SMH.I am not going anywhere for the foreseeable future, so count me in.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

I have a bunch of AR stuff that I want to get rid of.  The key word there is "want"....not "forced".  (10.5" 5.56? Never again,  20" 5.56? What's the point?)

 

I also have some AR stuff that I have ZERO plans on getting rid of.....so we are about to be in for a ride.   Buckle up....

Can't leave for awhile as there are a couple grandbabies on the way and whole family is here and imminent retirement will allow me to ply the ding-a-lings against the 2nd amendment on the phone and in person for pro-2A results. I am in!

I'm not gambling on winning any of the short game battles in Illinois, as I only see that going anti-gun and likely faster than it has in a long time...  But with a Republican president, Republican Senate and Conservative Supreme Court, my hopes are that the long game battle is won in the courts and Illinois politicians arrogance creates pro-gun precedence across the nation...

Our little town just added 50 low income housing units to be opened in 2019.

Hmm wonder how much that will dilute the vote in a red leaning city of 3000 in 2020 after they are filled.

Lost all my stuff in a boating accident and have a boat in my barn to prove it lol

Still will fight these anti freedom bills in any way legally possible.

Speaking of downstate...

It's time to flip the seats we can control.

That's what turncoats get. They took campaign donations from Bloomberg, the moms get paid by Bloomberg to do his bidding.

You know something? Im looking forward to the ground fight. Ive gathered enough evidence via research and FOIAs to really hammer people at town halls. The Moms and their beta male husbands would be a blast to confront in a public setting. I have some great ideas how to showcase their hypocrisy and fake agenda (safety)

The Moms gave them money to buy their votes in the legislature. If their votes hadn't been for sale, they wouldn't have gotten any money. The Moms still have anti-gun votes in those seats in the next legislature, so they won either way.

While I am lucky enough to fall under the law enforcement exemption that's been in nearly all the scary gun of color bans that have been proposed, my Rights should not be greater off duty than those citizens without badges in their wallets.

There's talk of them offering buyouts for senior personnel at my agency. Kansas, where my FIL lives taxes pensions but it's looking better and better each day.
You will not 'rise to the occasion', you will default to your level of training - plan accordingly.

Despite their rallying around us at election time, honoring only 8 hours of Illinois' 40+ hour law enforcement class towards a 16 hour requirement shows the contempt that our elected officials hold us in.

Here's how Bloomberg's Everytown say they did it, got an email from them.

Wow, we did it. We had 1.2 million conversations with voters at the doors and on the phones and together, we elected gun sense majorities in the U.S. House of Representatives, key governorships, and statehouses!

When we said that we would throw out leaders who were bought by the NRA, it wasn't an empty threat — it was a promise. We made a promise that if our leaders didn't enact stronger gun laws, we would throw them out. And that's just what we did: in red, blue, and purple states across the country, Gun Sense Candidates turned into a Gun Sense Majority. Your countless hours spent canvassing and knocking on doors, talking to your neighbors, and phone banking potential voters have resulted in a surge of leaders who are committed to fighting for gun safety, winning their races at every level of government.

Thank you for all of your hard work. Watch our video, and see just how impactful YOU were in the midterm elections.

[VIDEO] We elected a Gun Sense Majority and these victories are because of you

Thank you for helping to elect a Gun Sense Majority.

Everytown for Gun Safety
