Guns Save Life opposes “May issue” carry proposals for Illinois

WHEREAS, Guns Save Life is a civil rights educational organization, dedicated to preserving and promoting the fundamental right of all Americans to keep and bear arms for defense of self, their families, and their property, from attacks by criminals, and from any governmental usurpation of our freedoms; and

WHEREAS, The SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES has affirmed that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the individual right of Americans to keep and bear arms, and that this fundamental right may not be infringed by either the Federal or State governments, and

WHEREAS, the history of “May Issue” firearms carry permit laws, including the prior law of Illinois, proves that such laws are widely subject to abuse, corruption, racial bigotry, and un-equal application based upon the whims of government officials, and

WHEREAS, “Shall Issue” firearms carry permit laws, with objective standards, uniformly applied, which give NO “discretion” to officials who issue such permits to citizens who meet the standards, have proven to be fairly administered in more than 36 states which have passed such laws, while at the same time ensuring the public’s safety.

BE IT RESOLVED, that any “MAY ISSUE” firearms carry permit law proposed in Illinois shall be OPPOSED by the membership and supporters of Guns Save Life.

Resolved by the Officers and Directors of Guns Save Life.

John Boch
President of Guns Save Life

    I’m in complete agreement.

    Shall Issue is the only way to go. Hopefully this year?

    All “May Issue” means is that one person has the power to deny another person their Constitutional Right to carry. Too much power for one person.
