    Boots on the ground and in the minds of your legislators.

    Make a difference - bring the family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Large participation sends a clear message.

    Your rights/freedoms are not a one day event. Consider joining the ISRA, Illinois State Rifle Associationi and get involved.

    Grape - ISRA is in hot water with their membership right now. They, like the NRA, have caved-in on this fiasco over bump-stocks. There are a couple of threads at Illinois Carry where posters are lambasting them for this problem an a couple of others.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we all saw things the same way? At least they seem enthusiastic and with somewhat of a common goal.

    While I don't always agree with the NRA, I am not ready to thrown them under the bus either.

    Good luck with the legislature and furthering your advances.

    This country was built with diversity, yet arguably is one of the best examples of unity....100% is not required
