Right To Carry News
The powers that be are coordinating with the anti-gunners to deny Illinoisans any access to being able to protect themselves. Some of our friends over at IllinoisCarry.com gave us this head's up:
- I’m hearing from insiders that the anti-gun national and state groups are beginning to gear up to try to stop right-to-carry legislation. Specifically, the Brady Campaign hired Government Navigation Group to lobby for them about two weeks ago and registered Chris Carr. I don’t know much about Carr, but I’ve heard him described by another lobbyist as a “Blago retread.” GNG is owned by Paul Rosenfeld, whose name came up in the Blagojevich investigations, and it seems to specialize in lobbying one unit of government on behalf of another, as Byzantine as that sounds.
Now the rumor is that on Tuesday, there will be a press conference, probably in Chicago, at which Illinois politicians willing to go on the record against RTC will be trotted out. Apparently that means Anita Alvarez, she of the famous “I think there should be a law that nobody can buy a gun” interview.
If any of your readers or contacts get a chance to get to the presser and take photos, I have a use for them down here in Springfield if they’re willing to pass them along; we’d like to do a compare/contrast with IGOLD. Thanks!
As Mr. Gwinn notes, he'd like any photos taken from the press conference forwarded to his organization. The IGOLD (Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day) was a spectacular success, drawing thousands to Springfield for a rally, march, informational meetings and face-to-face lobbying with legislators. It will be interesting to see how few people show up in a metropolis the size of Chicago to support something that 49 states other that Illinois have already decided is a good idea.
