UPDATED ADDITIONAL MATERIAL IN BOLD.
We are going to get a vote in the Illinois House on HB997, the “shall issue” carry bill once supported by the NRA, ISRA and GSL.
Well, actually, there’s going to be an amendment put forth [today] that will be very similar to HB997. There will be some minor changes but Todd Vandermyde believes we have to votes to get where we need to go [today]. It’s going to be close, so make those calls!
Prior amendments were offered, but not voted upon, and they will fall by the wayside.
ISRA has put out an email alert and we’ve heard from other sources as well.
Here’s the ISRA Alert.
HB 0997, the ISRA supported version of Concealed Carry will be coming up for a vote at any time. It is urgently important that you take action immediately.
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO GET THIS BILL PASSED
1. Call your State Representative and politely inform them that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm owner and that you want them to vote “YES” on HB0997. If you do not know who your state representative is, the Illinois State Board of Elections has an interactive search page here:
If you know who your representative is, you can find their contact info here:
2. Politely inform your representative that you OPPOSE any bill that is a “MAY ISSUE”
3. Be sure to pass this alert on to your friends and family and ask them to make calls as well.
4. Be sure to post this alert to any and all Internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you belong.
A big thank you to all who made calls this morning on the amendment for HB831. It did not pass, but could always get another amendment and get called again.
Your participation is making a difference!
