IGOLD : Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day Wed. April 6, 2016
Article first appeared at Ammoland.com
Ammoland.com – Mark this important date on your calendar. If you need to reserve a vacation day before the end of the year – DO IT NOW!
This may be one of the most important IGOLD events so far. Since the San Bernardino terrorist attack, anti-rights legislators are more determined than ever to disarm law-abiding citizens.
We know disarming innocent people does not make us safer.
We know gun free zones are killing zones. It is important we show our legislators and Governor that we oppose any further restrictions on our Second Amendment rights and that we support:
- Less restrictions in where we can legally protect ourselves and our loved ones
- The carry licensing fee is too high for many to afford
- The 16 hr. training requirement is excessive, especially when compared to our neighbors in Indiana where no training is required.
- We need reciprocity with other states in order to protect ourselves when we travel in those states.
If you have already received your carry license, this is NOT the time to sit back and become lax!
Those who have taken the training and gone through the licensing process are crucial to the fight and we need you to stand with us and be heard at IGOLD! Save the date! Be there!
Your New Year Assignment!
Your assignment, should you be willing to accept it, is to contact your State Representative and State Senator and express your concerns about: restrictions in the carry law, further attempts to enact firearm/magazine bans, or attempts to make purchasing, owning, or transporting firearms more difficult for law abiding citizens. Contact your state legislators at the State Capitol and at their home office.

The IllinoisCarry forum was started in April 2004. The idea was that Illinois needed a central location to communicate ideas and information regarding 2nd Amendment issues in Illinois. There are many organizations in Illinois working to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. Working with these groups IllinoisCarry has become the central location for information and Action Alerts. IllinoisCarry will not endorse political candidates. We simply provide information so voters can make informed decisions. Our goal is to join the other 48 states that allow their citizens to carry concealed firearms. We encourage you to register on our forum and join the fight for your 2nd Amendment Rights in Illinois.
