Illinois - Downstate Democrats Betrayed By Senate Leadership

Thursday, March 20, 2003

Senate President Emil Jones has betrayed the downstate democrats. By walking lockstep with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, he has left the downstate democrats who elected him to his leadership position open to criticism from gun owners. If the anti-gun agenda promoted by Senator Jones succeeds (click here for information about SB 1195), gun owners in southern Illinois will have to think twice before voting for a candidate who will keep Jones in his leadership position.

Find your Senator on the list below, call him today and tell him to tell Senator Jones to back off of his anti-gun agenda! If you are not sure who your senator is use the "Write Your Legislators" box to the right.

P.S.--A number of Senators have reportedly received inappropriate phone calls. When you contact your Senator be sure to be passionate but polite. Do not insult the Senator or any members of the staff. Name calling does not gain us anything, and can be very hurtful to our cause in the long run.
