The Illinois State Rifle Association hosted the annual Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day event on Wednesday, April 6th. Turnout was thin, but full of determination and dedication to the cause. In short, we’re tired of Illinois political leadership turning violent criminals out of jails and prisons to re-offend, then blaming guns and gun owners for their criminal acts.
I arrived at about 10:35 or so. Parking was not a problem, which was a clue that we weren’t going to have a massive crowd that we’ve enjoyed in previous years.
I didn’t find many news stories about the event. Obviously if Moms Demand Action had put this on, they would have had extensive coverage to further the legacy media narrative supporting gun control and keeping poor folks on the gun control plantation. But we can’t complain about what’s “fair” because life’s not fair. The Center Square did cover it.
