Rockford Non-Event

From IllinoisCarry:
The speakers were a local SA, a local judge, a law professor, and a guy from ICHV. Overall like dodgeboy said it was a very fair and balanced presentation, mostly fact based, with the SA waxing eloquent on some quotes from the founders and history for a few minutes at one point. The law professor was first and the longest, and walked through the law point by point. I got the impression he might be an anti, but to his credit, his presentation was completely fact based, and he did a fine job overall. The SA was clearly a proponent of CCW, though he was also fair, bringing up both supporting statistical studies, and non-supporting statistical studies in his speech. The judge asked several questions to the other three which to me it seemed he should already know, so I think they were rhetorical for the sake of presentation. 
And the reason for the ISRA Alert?  
The guy from ICHV didn't have much to say. He clearly had his tail between his legs.
I'm sure in a canned event, he would have had a lot more to say regarding how CCW holders are just killers in waiting.  Instead he faced this:
I think the crowd was mostly pro-2A people. At least a half dozen NRA hats including myself, and I saw a few igold shirts too, among other 2A clothing.
The only time gun control can survive is in areas where they are the only ones speaking. When it comes to open debate/discussion, they lose.

Good to hear that parts of Illinois still have some sane people.

Back when I lived there (pre-1980) Chicago wanted to run the whole state, pulling very long strings leading to Springfield.

I'm sure they're still trying, but at least people in other parts of the state appear to be waking up and fighting back.
