Findlay, IL 62534
Formerly chairman of Take Back Illinois, 2nd Amendment Committee
Presently dedicated to KEEPING CHICAGO THE HELL OUT OF MY BACKYARD AND GUNSAFE
Projects: Preparing for IL legislature committee hearings that will happen 2 months from now on firearm legislation.
I own most of the evil firearms that Chicago is trying to impose it's will upon the rest of the state by introducing legislation to ban them. I rarely have time to shoot them, I feel you have to fight the soft war before you can practice for the Hard War.
Turnons: People who are willing to stand up for their rights and make the sacrifice to do so.
Turnoffs: 99.995% of the IL gunowners who do nothing.

The ISRA has been in existence for 104 Years......If your not an ISRA member....WE NEED YOU NOW....more than ever. The high capacity magazine ban passed the state Senate and was sent to the House just last week. We have 2 Lobbyists in Springfield that we support through memberships and contributions. The money of course helps....but we also need YOU. We need the number to put behind the Lobbyists. Out of 1.2 million gun owners in IL.....ONLY about 15,000, belong to the ISRA. When one of the Lobbyists walks into a lawmaker’s office, we NEED the lawmaker to KNOW that they speak for a VERY large number of IL gun owners. Just $25 a year, $37 for a family (kids 19 and under). Please go to www.isra.org today. PLEASE help us help you. Do you want to see what we are all about? If you are in the Joliet area, the Will County chapter meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month (this month the 16th) at "Sara's Place" (a restaurant, on IL-6, close to the Empress) at 7 pm. Open to all, not just ISRA members. We also have an Open House at the ISRA range in Bonfield, IL on June 9th, find details on the web site.....www.isra.org
