Guns Save Life has worked closely with the National Rifle Association's staff to put together a plan for this fall's mid-term elections. In fact, we publicized a general overview of our multi-point election strategy plan almost two months ago. It is coming together quite nicely.
Points three and four involved educating our people on how to more effectively lobby their own legislators one-on-one and how to get more active helping our friends in elective office. Of course, we're deferring to the experts on these points and they're coming through for us.
Here's a sneak peek at the announcement. Further notifications, via email, texts and possibly US Mail will begin going out in the coming days and weeks. We're encouraging the other gun rights organizations in Illinois to publicize and promote this event as well, so feel free to forward the information!
We'll see you at SCHEELS on Wednesday, September 12th! (Yes, we know that's the night of Charleston's GSL meeting. For those in the Charleston area, we'll take notes and share this information with you following the event.)
