IL State Rifle Association being little b*tches again

Updated: Jan 20, 2022

So the gun grabbers introduce this bill that criminalizes gun owners who have their guns stolen if they don’t report it quick enough. This bill is a stepping stone into a MANDATORY ”safe storage“ requirement in which it will be a criminal charge if you don’t lock up your gun separate from ammo:

And the ISRA’s lobbyist is neutral on the bill:

Last session, the ISRA helped push a gun control bill forward that is now law (strengthening the FOID card). As some remember, they also hijacked OUR WORK to benefit themselves (linked below)

Our article and investigative work dated 12/2/19

ISRA hijacked it 8 days later and dumped what they were sitting on in private. Why would they withhold this info and only dump it after we found it on our own (on a lunch break, mind you lol). It did lead to a federal lawsuit, btw:

Seriously, ISRA. Stop the BS and fight for IL gun owners. Enough of this “no position“ crap, and enough of helping strengthen gun control in IL. Further, as shown in 1969 when the FOID card was in its infancy, your gamble of supporting it failed miserably.

Several states have proven that the best defense of gun owners occurs when there is a strong state organization that is entirely independent of affiliation with the rights-sucking NRA. Arizona couldn't seem to get off the ground with issues like constitutional carry until AZ Citizens Defense League was formed independent of the state NRA association... then did things take off. AzCDL was able to tell the legislature, "WE represent the state gun owner, not some fly-in lackey from Fairfax," and suddenly problems whose solutions were "impractical" or "premature" according to the lackey started falling over like tenpins.
