Quote of the day—Richard Pearson

Whatever the case some kind of concealed carry will come to Illinois. Some believed it would never happen. Many of our good members have passed away waiting for concealed carry to come to Illinois. I was thinking about them today. I could see their faces but I have to tell you I could not remember all their names. We should all be grateful for their efforts and remember that freedom comes at a dear price. In any case, I hope they are looking down on us and see that concealed carry come to Illinois. I also wonder, not just today, but often, how many lives were wasted because we did not have concealed carry in Illinois. I hope those people are looking down on us and are comforted by knowing many lives will be saved and others will not have to suffer the untimely death they suffered.

I also remember the endless string of enemies we have faced in our quest for concealed carry and our seemingly endless efforts to preserve the Second Amendment in Illinois. Many of those enemies will see Illinois get concealed carry first hand.

Many of our enemies have passed away also. I hope they are looking up and see concealed carry come to Illinois.

  1. Can’t wait to see the updated USA Carry gif with IL turning from black to red.

  2. Nice little touch there: “I hope they are looking up”. Up, not down. Indeed.

  3. What’s sad is all those Victims of Gun Violence over the years who were denied the RKBA and had to face down Evil w/o the best tools available to give them a Fighting Chance. May they R.I.P.

    And may all those Illinois Politicians who perpetuated their Anti-Gun Crimes have to face the same Dilemma!

    So the next Big Battle: How do we turn the “May Issue Volksrepubliks” into “Shall Issue?” Illinois set a BIG precedent.

    Keep the Sleeves rolled up, there’s still a lot of work to be done.
