Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh is now on the United States Supreme Court.  It is not over and what the Brett Kavanaugh episode has revealed is the length the left will go to destroy anyone or anything they don’t like.  It has been leaked that the anti-Kavanaugh forces were financed by dark money.  Dark money comes from a lot of places; most typically, it came from anti-American billionaires who live here or elsewhere in the world and foreign governments.  The Clinton Foundation scandal is an example of dark money and how it is used.  The Wall Street Journal revealed that George Soros has twenty front groups supplying protesters in Washington, DC.

For years, Hillary Clinton has been screeching about a vast right-wing conspiracy.  I have never been able to find such a conspiracy.  For one thing, the right-wingers are too stubborn and uncompromising to engage in such a thing.  If this was a vast right-wing week-long convention, by the time they agreed on the agenda, the placement of the podium, the uniform style of footnoting, the font to be used on the power point and printed material, it would be Friday night and they would all be headed home.

I have just returned from the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) and I am pleased to inform you that the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) has won the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCKRBA) Affiliate of the Year Award.  The ISRA has won this award for 10 of the last 11 years.  As I reflect on this honor of why the ISRA has won this prestigious award, I found the answer to be because of the dedication of our members, Staff and Board of Directors.  Let me give you a few examples of what those words actually mean.

Gun owners, get active!

Gun owners, get active!

By John Meacham, ISRA Member

As I read an article with the headline “RNC internal poll finds GOP in danger due to complacent Trump voters: report” on thehill.com, I was reminded of what Illinois State Rifle Association leaders told those of us who attended a regional meeting in Marion Tuesday of last week.

We conservatives in general and law-abiding firearm owners in particular are all too often our own worst enemies. We are too often too apathetic or uninformed to bring our full power to bear against our very real foes.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - September 20, 2018

The media seldom mentions the 2,000,000 or more times a citizen uses a firearm in self-defense.  Many times, these incidents are unreported and if they are reported, they go unmentioned or appear deep in a newspaper.  Sometimes there is just no avoiding reporting a good outcome when a legally armed citizen uses a firearm.  Such was the case last Thursday when Cicero, Illinois police officers engaged a suspect who was firing at them with an automatic weapon.  Officer Luis Duarte was hit several times during the shootout.  Suddenly, an armed citizen got out of his car and fired at the suspect, hitting him once, which ended the gunfight.  The Cicero, Illinois Superintendent of Police and Town President Larry Dominick praised the citizen for intervening.   The name of the armed citizen has not been released.  
Cicero is in Cook County.  Cook County has 89,779 Illinois Concealed Carry Licensees and 598,205 FOID card holders, as of last week.
