  1. How many knew about this? How many went? Seen on Facebook: K Michael Hockenberry: PLEASE SHARE, your local FFL's need your support ATTENTION ALL FOID CARD HOLDERS IN THE PEORIA AREA. Tomorrow, September 18, the ISRA (IL State Rifle Association) is hosting an apology tour event at American Legion Post#2 at 110 E McClure St. at 10:00 am Guest Speaker is ANTI-GUN State Senator Dave Koehler. Senator Koehler was the leading voice in shutting down IL dealers. The ISRA has endorsed Koehler to either make money to fight his policies or they agree with him. Senator Koehler needs to understand, he is the problem, a politician that says one thing (he's pro gun) and does the opposite (votes anti-gun), is called a liar. The ISRA leadership has sided with the politicians and shut off their members right to vote, they now nominate and elect themselves, the members can do nothing. Dave Koehler and The Illinois State Rifle Association are anti police, anti Veteran, and do not care about your gun rights. If you are an ISRA member, how many times do you receive an email or letter asking for money to fight legislation? The answer is all the time, but sadly the ISRA is endorsing the politicians that vote for the laws they ask for money to fight. State Senator Dave Koehler's voting record is as follows. ANTI GUN VOTES 01/24/2017 Gun Dealer Licensing Certificate Rules.....CO SPONSOR This has closed over 1200 dealers in IL and creates a gun registry. Forces dealers to keep a register for the purpose of allowing the ISP to search for individuals by name or FOID number, giving a list of all firearm purchases 04/27/2017 Requires State-Level License to Sell Firearms...voted YES This made only the FFL's that transfer pay for a license, gun smiths and manufacturers are exempt. More proving the bill is only for registration of person, not the tracking of firearms 03/18/2018 Establishes Age Limit of 21 for Purchase of Rifles.....voted YES if it weren't for 18 year old's with rifles, we would not have a military. This is also anti military as military personnel under 21 cannot purchase a rifle in IL. 05/30/2018 Authorizes Courts to Confiscate Firearms without due process...voted YES This is the red flag law, ANY VETERAN screened (not diagnosed, just checked) for PTSD is qualified to have their firearms confiscated 08/26/21 Creates a gun registry of private firearm sales....voted YES This forces both parties of a private gun sale to register such sale. the seller to register the sale to the State Police and the Buyer to register with a dealer to be registered in the State mandated registry All of these State laws are contradictory to Federal Law ANTI POLICE...PRO CRIME 08/26/21 Police Reform bill...voted YES This is why crime is spiking and Police officers are leaving in droves. Police departments are not getting as many applicants and are dealing with record retirement levels. This bill also weakens the LE unions 05/30/2019 Authorizes Incarcerated Persons on Bailable Offenses to Receive a Credit....votes YES 05/30/2016 Amends Chicago Police and Firefighter Pension Plans...voted YES 01/12/2021 Prohibits Cash Bail Among Various Other Criminal Justice Reforms...voted YES Criminals are no longer required to pay bail, they just get let go. LAST but not LEAST, Koehler voted for Pritzker's budget Please pass the word, especially if you are an ISRA member

  3. https://archive.aweber.com/awlist4894361/PC_1A/h/ISRA_Informational_Alert_.htm Did anyone here go to this meeting in Sparta? Does anyone know any one who went? Asking for a friend.
  4. Well, if there was a plan like that, they should have gone neutral on HB1091, instead of HB592. Don't attribute to cleverness what you can to ineptness.
  5. Aunty Sara gave those guns away 11 years ago, remember? Before she got sick.
  6. As bad as those comments may seem, word is they are deleting comments that seem worse.
  7. Things to consider that attach at odd angles: 1. The ISRA sometimes works in the background and apparently writes these "competing" anti-gun bills. It's all quiet until it's not. Barb Wheeler noted when interviewed that the ISRA helped with her version of the bump-stock ban. https://patch.com/illinois/crystallake/rep-wheeler-il-rifle-association-work-together-bump-fire-stock-bill 2. Let's say HB562 passes, and the ISRA is in court over some aspect of the FOID: Doesn't their tacit acceptance of the legislation hurt their stance or testimony in court over the civil rights aspect of the FOID card?
  8. ISRA didn't just fail to oppose it, they socialized it and de facto supported it, all the while saying they were neutral on it. Richard will not get fired. Three directors left the ISRA board in 2020, probably under the same worry of liability that surely must plague NRA Board members about Wayne. The ISRA board is not willing to rein in Richard. Richard will have to decide to leave, either the office or his mortal coil.
  9. Just like laws prohibiting CCW that may sill be on the books in your community (eg Elmhurst) , there may also be laws on the books prohibiting you from walking around.
  10. However, I joined a few minutes late. Did Richard talk about the Brown case?
  11. This are serious topics and Richard laughs like a hyena, Call me a liar.
  12. Chicago files suit in civil court in cook Co against a gun store in Indiana. LOL sure, make noise.
  13. I found the announcement about the announcement on the ISRA's Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/ISRAgroup/
  14. https://archive.aweber.com/awlist4894361/BSUfl/h/ISRA_Alert_March_22_2021.htm The Illinois State Rifle Association has been asked to partner with the Firearms Policy Coalition of California and the Second Amendment Foundation of Washington (who we have successfully partnered with in McDonald v. Chicago and Ezell v. City of Chicago, among others) in pursuing the potential challenges: Federal FOID Challenge - Anywhere within the State is fine. We are seeking both male and female Plaintiffs, so anyone who is interested in participating in such a challenge should contact us. 18-20 Year-Old Carry Ban Challenge – Anywhere within the State is fine. We are seeking Plaintiffs who either have a FOID card, or who have their parents’ consent/sponsorship to get one. The participant must also have the ability to lawfully acquire a handgun. Cook County Assault Weapons Ban - Any ISRA members who reside in Cook County who are interested in participating in an effort to change this law and overturn some incorrect Court decisions should contact us. Please contact Laura at 815.635.3198 or email laura@isra.org as soon as possible if you are willing to participate.
