Fifty-sixth county rejects 'gun supervision'

Once again, I have fallen behind the good news about the pro-rights movement sweeping the state of Illinois, county by county. Last time I talked about this, there were fifty-five counties that had adopted the resolution affirming the commitment to the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment, and condemning the Chicago-style attacks on it.

As of of last Wednesday, Tazewell County made it fifty-six (by a not-too-shabby 20-1 vote). As mentioned before, Jackson County will have a committee vote on it a week from Tuesday (Nov. 6th).

Our map, therefore, looks like this:

Don't forget to check in with the Illinois Pro Second Amendment Resolution website for the most current updates.

It seems that our "gun supervision activists" are pursuing an agenda that lacks popular support (to put it mildly) over most of the state.

Keep fighting the fight man! We're winning, but we can't give up.

...and thanks for the link. :)

Thanks, Clay--it will be a long fight, but we'll win in the end.

As for the link, I was just reciprocating, so thank you.

If you get all of the counties signed up, the only one that will count is Cook. Sorry to say Governor Bolonvich is owned by Chicago and is only going to represent it's interest. Elect a pro-gun governor that isn't a crook and you might have a chance.

Sad but true.

Anon, I agree that Cook County rules the entire state. I still think that this resolution goes along way in exposing their lie that the people of Illinois overwhelmingly favor more draconian gun laws.
