More Illinois counties embrace freedom

In the process of composing yesterday's post, I realized that it had been quite awhile since I had posted an update about the county-by-county spread of resolutions condemning Chicago-style trampling of the right to keep and bear arms. As it happens, rather a lot has gone on in the month and a half since the last update.

Jackson (Dec. 12th), Cass (Dec. 13th), and Ogle (Jan. 15th) Counties have all passed resolutions of support for the Second Amendment. That makes 64 counties (of 102) that have taken a public stand against the disarming of Illinois. Additionally, Clinton County's board will vote on the resolution next week (Jan. 22nd), and Macon (also Jan. 22nd), Peoria (Jan. 31st), and Moultries (Feb. 6th) Counties have scheduled committee votes, which will hopefully lead to votes by the whole board.

This brings the map to this:

As always, the place to stay current on this movement is the Illinois Pro Second Amendment website.

The people of Illinois are speaking, but are legislators listening?
