A Tale of Two Rallies


March 3rd, 2013, The Joyce Foundation funded Illinois Council Against Handgun Ownership held a 'Springfield Social Media Event' to protest guns. Here was the turnout:

March 6th, 2013, The Illinois State Rifle Assoc. held their Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day (IGOLD), mostly promoted through social media.  Here was the turnout:

We had more people talking to individual legislators from their districts than they had total attendees. Hell, we had more people talking photos on the bridge than they had attendees.

Any questions on to where public support really lies?

Now the ICHO is planning a 'rally' on April 11th w/ 'buses from across Illinois' to demand gun confiscation.  I think more comparison photos are in order.

That Gun Control 'Conversation' ? Intimidation and Harrassment

Via ColionNoir, new spokesman for the NRA:
There are web sites posting my personal information, my moms address, my dads address, and other family members. Other than to be malicious and put people close to me in danger why would someone do this? These are supposed to be the peaceful people. I crack jokes but never attack people on a personal level. Ironically, now I really feel the need to arm my family and friends. #IsItBecauseImBlack?
The same tactic they use on CCW holders by publishing their names and addresses.  The same tactic that Ladd Everitt used when he tried 'outing' bloggers and posting names, home states and work.

They can't win on their stances so they use unethical and immoral tricks to jam through laws and harass advocates into silence.

Sen. Feinstein "Hunting Humans is Legal"

Seriously, this woman is in a position of power in this nation yet she's dumber than a post.
..it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines
So is there a bag limit on politicians and lawyers or are they considered 'vermin'?

Todd Vandermyde's IGOLD 2013 Speech

video
I missed about a minute of the beginning and there's a hiccup in the middle but otherwise the whole, cheer-inducing speech.  Yeah, my hands shake.

Chicago's Effective Gun Laws

While Chicago-crats are spending countless hours and millions of dollars trying to make the rest of the state just as safe as their city, this rare, one-off occurrence happened
 COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A classroom full of first graders in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood narrowly escaped injury this week when two bullets pierced a classroom window.
Now obviously this was a former 'law abiding citizen' who had his mind taken over by the gun, right?Now, police say they have the teen who fired the shots...Jamison, of the 8800 block of South Jeffery Boulevard, is charged with aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm near a school.Pettis, of the 2100 block of West 77th Place, faces three counts of unauthorized use of a weapon by a felon, having a firearm and ammunition without a valid license, and possession of an unregistered firearm.
So some gangbangers shooting at another gangbanger in a city where crime is running rampant. But remember,  WE'RE the ones who need to be controlled and have more onerous laws to disarm us.

Quote of the Day: Mary Shepard Edition

“If being beaten and left for dead is what it took to help this cause, it was worth the pain.”

She's a stronger person than I.

  Todd Vandermyde No Bad Bills. No Compromise. Don't like it Gov. Quinn?  To **** bad. (video later)
The dastardly John Boch of GSL giving insurrectionist tips.

OFf to the march. More updates later.

The march and more:

Just how disgraceful is the state if Illinois?  The flag flying over the capitol was shredded. 

Rep Halbrook talking to voters.  There were about a dozen in the group. I then spent about a half hour talking to him.  FYI, he was wearing an IGOLD sticker.
 Me w/ Valinda Rowe and Mary Shepard. My geek-out moment for the day.  Especially when she asked for one of my cards w/ my site on it.
 Sen Chapin Rose in his natural environment. He's been one of our strongest proponents of CCW.

 Me and State Treasurer Dan Rutherford. His job is easy since the treasury's empty. ;)


Update:  Hell has frozen over.  Coverage in the Chicago Tribune. More at Illinois Carry. ISRA FB page. GSL

'Common-Sense' Confiscation in Illinois

Think they want 'reasonable compromise'? Try again.
Beginning 300 days after the effective date of that Act, makes it unlawful to knowingly possess a semi-automatic assault weapon or semi-automatic assault weapon attachment.

Including any form of AR-15. 

This is called confiscation.  There is no debate.  There is no 'compromise'.  This is the reality of 'gun control'.
