Illinois: Make Your Voice Heard for Gun Rights in Lake County!

Friday, June 27, 2008

As many of you are likely aware, there has been an effort in Illinois to pass resolutions in support of the Second Amendment at the county level for more than a year.  Although two counties passed resolutions in 2003, the real effort to promote this program began last March, while pro-gun activists were traveling to IGOLD (Illinois Gun Owners’ Lobby Day) in Springfield. 

Currently, 82 of the state’s 102 counties have passed resolutions supporting the Second Amendment.  In Lake County, there is a petition drive to promote passage of a resolution, which has already collected approximately 3,000 signatures. 

In light of the recent Supreme Court of the United States ruling that the Second Amendment protects an individual right, many of the 20 remaining counties, including Lake County, should be interested in showing their support of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. 

If you wish to help with this effort in Lake County, there are several things you can do.  First, you can sign a petition supporting the passage of a resolution.  There are several companies in Lake County where you can find petitions, including Bass Pro Shop, Smoking Gun, 1st Firearms, The Outdoorsman, Vintage Firearms, The Adventure Store, D & J Guns, and West Insurance.  You can also go to http://www.pro2aresolution.com for information on the efforts in Lake County, as well as the effort across Illinois.  Finally, you can contact members of the Lake County Board and urge them to support passage of a resolution supporting the Second Amendment. 

Information on Lake County Board Members can be found at http://www.co.lake.il.us/board/members.asp.  Please do what you can to promote this effort.
