Illinois: Attend the Second Amendment Freedom Rally in Downtown Chicago on Friday, July 11!

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

In response to the U.S. Supreme Court's historic Heller ruling that upheld the Second Amendment as an individual right and struck down the D.C. gun ban, Governor Rod Blagojevich was quoted as saying; "I want express my extreme disappointment with the decision issued today by the Supreme Court," and, "I am an advocate for common sense gun laws." 

The Supreme Court says we've been right all along, but Governor Blagojevich thinks he knows better.

To show Governor Blagojevich where his gun-owning constituents truly stand, please join featured speaker, Dr. Suzanna Hupp, and NRA-ILA Grassroots Division Director, Glen Caroline, at "The Second Amendment Freedom Rally" in Chicago on Friday, July 11, 2008!  Sponsored by the Illinois State Rifle Association and IllinoisCarry.com, this historic event will allow all law-abiding gun owners to stand together, in the heart of downtown Chicago, and celebrate the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision formally recognizing the Second Amendment as an individual right!
