Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day (IGOLD) 2009

Last year the over 2000 showed up in Springfield, and got almost no coverage from the media.  This year they seem to be getting at least some.  Chiefly from the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and CBS2 Chicago.  But the downer event this year is a House committee approving anti-gun bills including gun rationing and an assault weapons ban, and the Illinois Senate rejecting the concealed carry bill.

I guess that’s way to at least get the Chicago Tribune to at least mention the rally: passing an anti-gun bill while it’s happening.  Unbelievable.  Keep your spirits up Illinoisans, the Land of Lincoln will be free again.  True, this is a slap in the face to every Illinois gun owner to do this while you’re there lobbying, but now you know what to do come election time.
