The Republicans and Democrats who are vying to be the next Governor of Illinois recently answered a series of gun rights questions. I would encourage every IL gun owner to read those responses and keep them in mind when voting. The Illinois State Rifle Association’s response to those answers can be seen below:
ISRA-PVF URGENT ALERT:
JIM RYAN DECLARES WAR ON LAW-ABIDING ILLINOIS GUN OWNERS
In an Associated Press wire story released yesterday, Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Ryan pledged to sign a ban on “Assault Weapons” and promised to veto any “Concealed Carry” legislation that reaches his desk.
In making these pronouncements, Jim Ryan was very clear that he would wholeheartedly support legislation that would result in the ban and confiscation of most of the guns in your safe. You would have two choices – either surrender your banned firearms to the police, or the police will be kicking down your door to take them. Ryan could not have made the point any clearer.
Ryan was equally clear about your right to defend yourself. By pledging to veto concealed carry legislation, Ryan is telling you that he would rather see you unarmed, being beaten and humiliated by a gang of hooligans than to see you with a gun in your hand. Ryan also has a message for your wife, your mother, your daughter, your girlfriend. That message is that he would rather see her laying dead in an alley with her pantyhose knotted around her neck than to see her with a gun in her hand. Ryan could not have made the point any clearer.
Just as he did in the 2002 gubernatorial race, Jim Ryan has proven himself to be cut from the same cloth as Chicago Democrats such as Richie Daley, Barack Obama, and Rod Blagojevich.
Any gun owner who would vote for Jim Ryan has to be out of his or her mind.
Please forward this alert to all your gun owning friends.
Please post this alert to any and all blogs or bulletin boards to which you belong.
Please make a promise to yourself, right now, this moment, that you will not let yourself be pushed around and lied to by guys like Jim Ryan.
