2018, 33rd Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference

If you are interested being one of the movers and shakers of Second Amendment rights in Illinois and the nation this is where you want to be. The Second Amendment Foundation sponsors this event each year. This year it's being held at The Hyatt Regency O’Hare on September 21, 22, & 23rd in Chicago.

Legislative Update HB2354

July 16, 2018, Governor Rauner signed into law HB2354, which provides a mechanism for law enforcement, family, dating partners and roommates of Illinois gun owners to notify law enforcement if they believe a gun owner is a danger to themselves or others.  HB2354 allows law enforcement to temporarily remove the firearms from the accused person.  The legislation is based upon similar bills passed in Connecticut and Indiana that have reportedly reduced firearms related suicides in those states.  The legislaton does provide for the ability to challenge the order. Time will tell if the fears of abuse are founded.

Legislative Update SB3256

Governor Rauner also signed SB3256 into law. This is the bill that changes the purchase waiting period for long guns from 24 hours to 72 hours. That now makes the purchase waiting period for all firearms in Illinois three days.

ISRA on HB2354 and SB3256

Richard Pearson is the Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. The ISRA and Director Pearson fight for our rights every day. Read his comments on the rationale behind these two bills and how they might affect your Second Amendment rights in Illinois.

New Camera System

The club's security camera system has been upgraded with new HD cameras and recorder. An additional upgrade to the new system is the ability for the club's elected and appointed officers to access the live camera feeds and playback search function without having to physically be at the club. 

So there is no confusion, this means that while you are at the club it is possible that you could be viewed by a club officer if one happens to be accessing a live camera feed while you are there. This is not meant to be intimidating, just think of it as having a remote officer on duty at any given time.
