  1. We had some first rate soeakers in 2009.
  2. Pfhleger was there picketing the NRA which was not a sponsor of SAFR 2009. We made sure that the Chicago media would not get any photos of him without getting some of Mark The Sign Guy's signs in the same photo . One of the few time the his minions in the Chicago media did not plaster his protest photos all over the paper.
  3. He did show up in a big black SUV with darker out windows that was driven by people did look like they carrying - this was before the FCCA was passed.
  4. What we did get was Fadder Pfleger and 3 of his stooges picketing us! It was pretty funny.
  5. Priceless indeed. A close second was when Plegher picketed us.
  6. SAFR was started because there were people complaining about the trip from Chicago/Cook County was too far to go to Springfield where the legislature is so we started holding a Second Amendment Freedom Rally in downtown Chicago. There is a HUGE amount of coordination that goes into putting on a rally, especially when dealing with a bureaucracy that is antagonistic to your cause. After holding it for 2-3 years it was just not as well attended as IGOLD. There was frequent criticism of the Chicago media that IGOLD was not covered or only got a passing mention because “ It should be covered by the downstate papers”. When we held SAFR in Chicago the media ignored us anyway. It was too easy for the Chicago politicians to ignore us too so we wond up preaching to the choir. SAFR was just not as effective as IGOLD.
  7. We did this a few times, the last time I believe was 2010. We held it at the Thompson Center across from City hall. We even marched around the City Hall/County Building. Otis McDonald was one of your featured speakers. One of the reasons it was dropped IMHO was because there were just as many, if not more, downstate supporters than Chicago supporters.
  8. I just ran across this on the Book of Faces. Anyone know more info? The photo says April but the title says Oct 15.
  9. This is some really good information. Thanks to the devoted member who put this together.
  10. The one in Countryside is in Crook county. You have to add the Preckwinkle Tax per round into the final price. Probally why they have ammo in stock.

  12. I’d love to see him visit a monthly meeting at the Aurora Sportsmen Club in Waterman. THAT would be interesting.
  13. I was a 1911 fan for… well decades…until I gave in and bought a Glock. Most Glocks can best be described as butt ugly compared to a deeply blued or stainless 1911 but they go BANG every time and I’ve never had one that was fussy about what it’s fed. I believe Ray O’Herrons in Downers Grove is a blue label dealer. Im a fan.
