    I have written a letter of thanks to the citizens of Pike County. I would love it if we could all send them a note telling them how much we appreciate their resolution. Enough letters like that, and it will make the news again. More press on it, and a mass positive showing of support for it, will help push other local governments to pass similar measures that they may already be considering.

    Here's the address for the county courthouse (the best mailing address I could find):
    ATTN: Pike County Board
    Pike County Courthouse
    100 E. Washington Street
    Pittsfield, IL 62363

    My letter:
    Dear citizens of Pike County, Illinois:

    Thank you! Your resolution against enforcing state laws that violate the right to keep and bear arms is an inspiring move. I hope that your example will lead other counties, across the nation, with citizens who have been rankled by the ever-encroaching gun laws, to enact their own resolutions against the violation of individual rights.

    I wish you the best of luck with the ensuing political struggle. I will be cheering for you and encouraging my local officials to learn appropriate representation as demonstrated by your county board members. As Mr. Mountain said, “As an individual, it doesn’t mean much.” But fires start small, and with effort we may turn lanterns into entire states ablaze with the light of liberty.


    Please also write a letter of thanks to the Pike County Board, and pass this around on other forums to increase awareness!

    Note: Postage goes up to 41 cents on May 14th
