Ever wonder what the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action is all about?

Here’s your chance to learn about the nation’s premier civil rights lobbying group first-hand.  Come out and meet the NRA-ILA’s Illinois liaison Shannon Alford on Thursday, March 3rd at the Peoria GSL meeting!

She’ll be our special guest speaker and will discuss the NRA-ILA and its lobbying work, give us a picture of what’s happening in Illinois (and nationally) and answer questions.

She’ll also be on hand ahead of the meeting for you to meet her, get to know her and ask questions.

The meeting is free and open to all.  You don’t have to be a GSL member to attend. 
(Hint:  Bring your appetite.  Childer’s has great food for $10 for salad, food, drink, dessert, etc., all inclusive.)

Also on deck for the Peoria GSL meeting on Thursday, March 3rd:

Susan from Peoria Skeet and Trap
GSL President Bear St. Pierre
GSL’s Executive Director John Boch to deliver his E.D. report

And, as is our custom, we’ll have tech time, which at this point is To Be Determined.

Our monthly gun draw gun may be the Rock Island Armory Tactical 1911.  How sweet would that be?!

  1. I’m all in. Can’t wait to ask her what’s going on. Ditto for Mr. Boch and Mr. St. Pierre. Ya think anyone will be there from ISRA or Illinois Carry?

  2. The more I learn about GSL, the more I love this group.

    They’ve gone from a rag-tag bunch of local activists and gun enthusiasts, kicked out of ISRA so many years ago, to in many ways the leaders of gun rights activism in Illinois!

    The best speakers, monthly meetings in a bunch of cities across the state from top to bottom, a first-class monthly newspaper, a highway sign program that dwarfs anything done by any other state or local group to promote gun rights silently and assiduously, each and every day. The volunteers are plentiful and wonderful, and the cause couldn’t be more noble.

    Great job to all who contribute to make GSL a model gun rights organization. We’ve got a lot to be proud of and at the same time, we’ve got lots of work to do.
