Last night’s Guns Save Life monthly meeting in Rantoul was a great time as well over two hundred fifty members and guests attended in a gathering of the faithful.
We showed support for Connecticut gun owners facing felony arrest for failing to register their guns (gee, does that sound like something that might have happened in the 1770s?), heard from a former Miss America seeking the Republican nomination for a Congressional seat, a political representative of a candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, and some young people who organize the Ford County Young Guns Program. We sent the Young Guns away with $250 sponsorship for their upcoming fundraising dinner.
The highlight of the night was Paul Lewis, a survivor of the Iranian Hostage Crisis in the late 1970s. He gave a first-hand account of what happened. You could have heard a pin drop as the audience listened to his recounting of the incident.
A first-time attendee and new member, Mr. Hillard of the Tuscola area, won the gun.
If you didn’t make the meeting, you should come out next month to one or more of our monthly GSL meetings in cities across Illinois. They are a lot of fun, upbeat and educational.
