As you may or may not know, Michael Bloomberg and the New York State Attorney General have been pressuring financial institutions and credit card companies to stop doing business with gun companies and those who use credit cards to purchase firearms.  In some cases, even firearm training schools have been shut off.  You are probably aware the National Rifle Association had its credit card program canceled by the hosting bank.

We actually don’t care what Michael Bloomberg or his financial thugs think.  The Illinois State Rifle Association is fighting back.  On February 1, 2020, the ISRA will launch an exciting new credit card for members only.  We are teaming up with Services Credit Union (SCU) to bring you a powerful financial tool to help you reach your financial goals.  The ISRA Credit Card is available to all active members of the ISRA and offers you:

I have been warning everyone about Michael Bloomberg and how dangerous he is to the Second Amendment and our gun rights.  Bloomberg has just announced he is going to pour a billion dollars into his presidential campaign.  I don’t think Bloomberg expects to be elected, I think he wants to reshape the United States which would include banning firearms to individuals like you and me.  He will pour hundreds of millions into anti-gun commercials.  The Executive Directors of the Texas State Rifle Association told me that in November and December, Bloomberg established 16 new offices in Texas.  This is not just rented space.  These offices are fully equipped and staffed and aimed at destroying the Second Amendment.  If that is happening there, it is happening everywhere.

The Illinois General Assembly officially started the Spring Session yesterday, January 8th.  We will not see much activity until the last week of January.  That does not mean there will not be a lot going on behind the scenes.  We can expect the introduction of many bills but nothing will actually happen until early February.  Over the last 20 years, there have been many changes in the lobbying world.  The ISRA Lobby Team has been preparing for this Spring Legislative Session.

For years, we have been reminding everyone that when things go bad you have between three to five seconds to respond.  The shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ proves the point.  The shooter was dead in six seconds.  Still, he was able to kill two people.  Nevertheless, many people were saved by the quick response of the volunteer security guards.  In such situations you have to be accurate and decisive.

Cannabis and Your Second Amendment Rights

Cannabis and Your Second Amendment Rights

by Ed Sullivan, ISRA Lobbyist, former Illinois State Legislator

In the New Year there will be a bevy of new laws facing Illinois Citizens. One new law that Gun Owners should pay close attention to is PA 101-0027, the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act. This new law allows Illinois citizens over twenty-one the ability to purchase and consume cannabis recreationally. Illinois citizens have had the ability to purchase and consume cannabis for medical reasons for five years. There is a difference between the purchase and use of Medical Cannabis and Recreational Cannabis as it relates to your lawful rights to own and possess a firearm in Illinois.
