Illinois residents are encouraged to attend the Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day (IGOLD) on March 11, 2009, which is the annual event where we gun owners make our voices heard in the state capitol. This would also be a great time to respectfully discuss the ISP’s unlawful FOID card delays with legislators who are in a position to end that abuse of police power:
