I want to disagree heartily. We DO know what is in the bill simply by reading it, and any proposed amendments. There is absolutely no speculation, it is all black and white. We live in the information age.
We should get frustrated and we should harness that frustration as motivation to fight every single step of the way. Avoiding the discomfort of frustration is how we have been losing our rights for nearly 100 years. It’s time to tackle these bills head on. More gun owners should get frustrated. We should worry more about our rights and less about the super bowl or the kardashians.
I shared this hoping to inform the USCCA and get them on board fighting this. Sadly, the canned email reply I received from the USCCA said “they support lobbying groups like the crime prevention institute and second amendment foundation”. Both are great groups. However, neither of these groups is equipped to block this bill. I didn’t know CPI was involved with lobbying, and to the best of my knowledge SAF focuses on judicial matters, not so much on legislative. And when this bill passes, USCCA will lose thousands of customers in Illinois. Isn’t Illinois the second largest market for USCCA?
