So the ICHV, w/ zero membership, only surviving by grants from the Joyce Foundation, gets an award for 'Community Empowerment' for presumably getting a law passed that has no consequences for not following it.
And who gave them the 'award'? Why Cook Cnty States Attorney Anita Alvarez who has stated she believes 'No-one should own a gun'.
Now compare that to the Illinois State Rifle Assoc. (30K+ members) which is about to receive the NRA (4M+ members) Association of the Year Award for the umpteenth time for getting a (admittedly not perfect) CCW law finally passed in IL, winning countless lawsuits against Chicago, etc. etc.
Which award plaque do you think will end up in a garage sale for $1?
