Right to Carry Town Hall Meeting
Monday, Feb.20, 2012
7:00-9:00 pm
Logan Square Auditorium
2539 North Kedzie Blvd # 15
Chicago, IL 60647



We have been working for well over a year to arrange a Right to Carry town hall meeting in this area of the city.
It has finally come together and we will need a lot of help getting the word out about this meeting.
A flier will be available soon and we will need volunteers to help post them throughout the neighborhood and community!!

Good job! And I'm glad you found such a great location.

For those of you who haven't been there, it's literally steps from the Logan Square blue line stop. It couldn't be more convenient.
Or if you really want to drive, street parking is not horrible if you're willing to walk a few blocks from a residential sidestreet.

And we were told we could use the parking lot next door also!

Close to me too, I'll try to make it. Are the flyers going to be available to print on the site? I can try to find some places to post some up.

Will there be any local politicians who were invited, and if so, will they be attending?

Local politicians are always invited! Whether they attend or not varies from location to location.

Logan Square is in the 35th Ward. Alderman Rey Colon voted for the new Chicago Ordinance.

He feels the Supreme Court got it wrong on McDonald vs. Chicago.

Ald. Rey Colon, 35th, whose brother was fatally shot in 1979, said the justices on the nation's top court don't understand the reality of the inner city.

"I understand the right to bear arms, but I also understand parents crying in their sleep," he said.

Why is it that whenever a person has a family member fatally shot - they immediately become well-suited for a government position? I just can't see how they instantly become the most qualified person to represent the public. **sigh** I guess I just don't understand the reality of the inner city.

they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." — Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

My sympathy to Mr. Colon on the loss of his brother. 1979 was at the height of the some of the strongest gun laws in the nation. Well before most states had right to carry, after the enactment of the 1968 GCA. Three years after his brother's death, Chicago put their gun ban in place, to be in force for 28 years. If an out right ban didn't stem the tide of violence, how can anyone expect a registration scheme to have any effect??

What's that saying that attributed to lots of people? "Stupidity (or ignorance) is doing the very same thing and expecting a different outcome."

It looks like it's time to try something radically different re: Chicago and firearms.

Colon is a common name but if you Google "colon latin kings" it will show a lot of hits.

In 014, far too many parking courtesys are allowed for every church, play-church, church activity, you name it.

Now, so-called 'former' gang member, alderman Rey Colon, has destroyed the beauty of Logan and Kedzie Boulevards by covertly passing an ordinance to allow parking there.

I'll be arriving at least one hour before the start, and I have a stack of "49 States Are not Wrong" that I'll bring. I guess there's about 150 flyers in the stack.

The fliers are finally available! Please print and post everywhere in the Logan Square and surrounding area

Are we going to have a lot of support at this meeting? I am hoping to attend. I haven't seen anything in the news or in the paper regarding this town hall meeting.

We hope to have a really good turn out. Lots of people and several organizations are posting fliers all around the area.

All the media have been contacted but cooperation from the media is not something we have been able to count on
in the past. Maybe now that Illinois is officially the only state left without a carry law the media will
decide to air/print this.

We just don't know.

Awesome! Great job putting this together! It's so amazing how even in the Redeye they do a store about thieves, and there are only a few people that comment on the fact that there isn't a CCW right here. I will make sure to find you and introduce myself.

I doubt there will be much chance of actual news coverage, but maybe we can catch the attention of John Kass at the Tribune. I've enjoyed his pieces on RTC.

God Speed to all of those presenting and hosting at the Logan Square Town Hall tonight.

It may prove to be the most important Town Hall of the year.

Watch Fox Chicago tonight for their report on tracing guns used in Chicago crimes and watch all of the Chicago TV stations for coverage (if they even pay attention)
