More Illinois counties pass Pro-Second Amendment resolution

In the barely over two weeks since I last visited this topic, four more Illinois counties have passed resolutions reaffirming the counties' commitment to the Second Amendment, and condemning Chicago-style attacks on the right to keep and bear arms.

On Monday (Nov. 12th), it was Ford County, passing the resolution unanimously. The next day, Vermillion, Grundy, and Marion Counties followed suit (Marion County, you might remember, is where the resolution ran into some problems, at one point).

Bond and Jackson Counties have the resolution on the agenda for the near future (full board vote in Bond County set for next Tuesday). The updated map thus looks like this:

That's an amazing sixty out of one hundred-two counties that have embraced liberty, and rejected citizen disarmament. The good folks at Illinois Pro Second Amendment Resolution show us real grassroots in action.
