We will be needing tactical self-defense tongue depressors to hand out at the upcoming town hall meetings (might be as many as 5-6 town halls Feb. 20-29) and IGOLD on Mar. 7.

We need volunteers to print out and apply 2/3" x 3 7/16" labels on 6" x 3/4" x 1/16" craft sticks.

The labels are available at most office supply places and the craft sticks are available at Wal-mart
and most craft supply places. The ones at Wal-mart come 300 to a box.

The ISP website has changed the url for the webpage advising women to use a hair comb, car key, or gagging yourself to vomit
so the old labels are outdated. A file is attached for making the labels.

We would like to have at least a hundred of these for each town hall and 1,000 for IGOLD. Please sign up here if you are
willing to volunteer. You will need to make arrangements to get them to us in time for the meetings.

I will never understand their attachment to that page. In their place I'd be deleting it.

I KNOW!!!! I think I first contacted them and expressed my outrage about 5 years ago and still it
remains. On the other hand, it sure helps in our efforts to show the Gov.'s total disregard for the
safety of women in Illinois

They are narrower than a regular label - I think they are called file folder labels??

I seem to remember my father saying something about a “sharp stick in the eye.” What if one end is cut into a point, people could have a multi-purpose defense tool. Vomit or poke them in the eye. Then again the IL AG would probably file charges of premeditated assault with a dangerous weapon against the intended victim.

I was just pming her the other day about IGOLD and possibly helping with selling buttons and what not. They went ahead and made arrangments for IGOLD but they're not able to commit 100% just yet but will know very soon.

Also from the driving section of the Illinois State Police "Above all, if there is no escape, do not resist."
........apparently the Illinois State Police have joined forces with Criminals for a Safe Work Place (CSWP)........ and Carjackers of America (CJA).

Can we put you down for a box of 300 then?

I just click on the ISP website....under the puke on yourself tactic, is this little piece

http://www.isp.state...lt.cfm#ASLTCONF

"If you must fight-

*Guns stolen from residences are a primary way of getting guns into the hands of criminals.

*Be aware of those times and places where there is a potential for attack and be prepared to defend yourself.
parking lots
walking at night
waiting for a bus
elevators
other you will learn to recognize"

what does the first sentence have to do with fighting off an attack? Blatant propaganda anyone?!

I wondered the same thing. If guns stolen from residences are a bad thing, then why not allow us to take our guns with us, outside the residence, so that we are "prepared to defend yourself".

Nope. The safest thing is to round them up and destroy them. Especially historical pieces - they don't have loaded chamber indicators.


I just had to say that because the other day I was shown a VERY old Government 1911 - Property US Army - that had been chopped into pieces . . . .

lest a criminal got his hands on it.

If the government was the one who chopped it to pieces a criminal did get their hands on it.

Do you still need tongue depressors? We can pick up a couple of boxes and bring them to IGOLD if needed.
"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possession and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"- Patrick Henry
