Our own Margo
McDermed (State Representative 37th District) reported, through Ed Ronkowski,
that there are three pro-gun bills in the House. They are HB 481, concealed carry to be
allowed in rest stops; HB 482, concealed carry card allows you to buy ammo
without FOID card; and HB 482 would eliminate the waiting period for handguns
if you have a CC license.
Dave Lombardo stepped in as our guest speaker,
filling in for Kevin Michalowski of USCCA, who was down ill. Kevin will be our guest speaker in the near
future. Stay tuned.
Dave Lombardo spoke about home defense and
things to keep in mind when selecting ammo for this purpose.
There is an old saying that you should use the gun
with which you are most comfortable. Dave said this is pure “BS”. What if you
are most comfortable with a muzzle loader or a single shot .22 rifle or pistol?
Though they may be better than nothing, Dave said neither of those would be an
ideal weapon for home defense. more
Thank you to
everyone who attended!
