Can you spare $35 to help us defend the 2nd Amendment?

That’s right. All it takes is $35 to become a member of the Illinois State Rifle Association, the Land of Lincoln’s premier defenders of our 2nd Amendment rights.

The stakes are higher than ever as gun grabbers from Chicago continue their assault on our 2nd Amendment freedoms. They are shamelessly using national tragedies to push their agenda and their allies in the news media are doing all they can to help them.

The Illinois Rifle Association continues to stand for our 2nd Amendment rights, but we are only as strong as our membership. The more members we have, the louder our voice is in Springfield.

NOTE – All sales final. Once joined, you will receive an ISRA membership card and ISRA member decals via USPS.

If you value your right to self-defense,
won’t you join us?
