Second Amendment Freedom Rally in . . . Chicago?!!

You read that right--in Chicago. We did it last year, and despite there having been pretty short notice, turn-out was pretty impressive.

This time, though we're hoping for even better.

Second Amendment supporters will be coming from all over the state to celebrate the first anniversary of U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the DC vs Heller case. This historical ruling finally and firmly rules the right to keep and bear arms is an INDIVIDUAL right. Since that ruling several Illinois cities have dropped their ban on handgun ownership - Evanston, Wilmette, and Morton Grove which was the first city in Illinois to ban handguns. Oak Park and Chicago however still continue to deny their citizens this constitutional right.

We invite all who support the Second Amendment to join us in the heart of Chicago where law abiding citizens are still denied the right to own a handgun for personal protection.

Second Amendment Freedom Rally!
