Here’s something to brighten up your weekend, unless you’re Rahm Emanuel or Father “Snuffy” Phleger!
Guns Save Life is known for it’s popular and ever-growing monthly grassroots meetings in several cities in downstate Illinois. With consistent regular turnout between fifty and two hundred fifty people at our meeting locations, it’s a good time. We have featured speakers each month, a technical presentation about a particular firearm or type of firearm, a gun drawing and great fellowship with like-minded gun owners just like yourself.
The meetings are educational and fun. We sometimes say “history comes to life” with some of our speakers, while others provide remarkable insight into mindset issues, the firearms industry, and opportunities to grow and improve your skills as a responsible gun owner.
Here’s a video documentary about Guns Save Life.
We’re bringing our fun and exciting monthly meetings to Chicago by summertime. We’ve identified some leaders already willing to help spearhead the new meeting locations, and we’re looking for a few more good people to help. We’re looking for folks both north, south and west, potentially to run three separate GSL meetings each month in Chicagoland.
We’ve identified several volunteers thus far and are looking for a few more good men and women. If you’re interested in helping out in some capacity, or can offer logistical support, contact GSL’s President Bear St. Pierre at 217 480-2327 (217 480-BEAR) or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our goal is to have the leadership committee set up, a (gun-friendly) meeting location identified and to promote the inaugural meeting by summertime. Why bring GSL’s style of activism and public education to Chicago? Yes, on a per-capita basis, there’s not (yet) a high rate of gun ownership among Chicagolands millions of law-abiding residents. However, there are many hundreds of thousands of gun owners in a small geographical area and we want to help them educate their friends, neighbors and most importanly, elected representatives on the proven benefits of firearms ownership.
We’ll see you soon, Rahm.
