Illinois Counties Supporting the Second Amendment!

Friday, November 16, 2007

There is a growing movement to support the Second Amendment in Illinois at the county level, which has been advancing for many months.  Currently, 60 of the 102 counties in Illinois have passed resolutions expressing support of the individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms that is guaranteed by the Second Amendment.  

In general, these resolutions proclaim support of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and opposition to efforts to restrict that right that have been proposed in the Illinois General Assembly.  While these resolutions are mostly symbolic, they should be noted by state lawmakers in Springfield.  Clearly, the majority of elected officials at the county level, as well as their constituents, support law-abiding gun owners, even if the leaders of certain influential counties, such as Cook County, may wish to see infringements on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms continued, or extended, throughout all of Illinois.
