The Illinois General Assembly has a great impact on our ability to exercise our Second Amendment rights. It's important that we express our feelings on pending legislation to our representatives in the Illinois General Assembly. We may choose to stop by local offices, make calls or write letters and emails to the officials that have been elected to represent us.
Another option is to file a "Witness Slip" online on the my.ilga.gov website. Visit the website and create a personal account. This will allow you to create witness slips indicating your stance to support or oppose legislation. Illinois State Rifle Association and Illinois Carry are good sources of information on legislation in need of a witness slip and will normally send email notifications to members for distribution. I receive these notifications and will pass them along when possible. You can also sign up with IllinoisCarry.com to receive witness slip notification. Registration at IlinoisCarry.com is free.
But it's important to get your ILGA account set up in advance. Once your account is set up and you have created a witness slip template; filing a witness slip is quick and easy. It's also important to get signed up because when slips are needed they are often needed fast.
Please consider signing up and submitting witness slips. It's a quick, easy way to make your opinion known and help protect our Second Amendment rights.
