    KOTOWSKI & BLAGOJEVICH PLAN AMBUSH OF GUN OWNERS ON JULY 9TH

    Governor Blagojevich and State Senator Dan Kotowski are planning to ambush gun owners on July 9th by calling for a special legislative session on so-called “gun violence". It is expected that Kotowski will introduce legislation that would result in the banning and forced confiscation of most of your guns. The hope is to ramrod this legislation through the General Assembly while the public is distracted by failed budget negotiations.

    Senator Kotowski is quickly establishing himself as the most dangerous anti-gunner in the nation. He is using every trick in the book to find a way to take your guns away from you. He doesn’t care if you are a hunter, target shooter, or trap shooter. He wants to take your guns away from you. He is obsessed with the notion of a gun-free Illinois. He is obsessed with the desire to humiliate you and strip you of your guns.

    If you cherish your gun rights, this is what you must do:

    1. On Monday, July 9, call your state representative and your state senator and politely tell him or her to focus on passing a budget, and to leave your guns alone. Tell the person who answers the phone that you are a law-abiding gun owner and that you are sick and tired of being blamed for the lawless deeds of criminals.

    2. Post this information to any and all Internet bulletin boards or blogs to which you belong.

    ISRA has listings of phone numbers for Illinois State Representatives and Illinois State Senators.
    Need to find out who your Legislators are? Check the Illinois Election Board.

    Remember: gun control is a disease, and you are the cure.

    Please make contact with your legislators. I am tired of this crap and hoped we were done for a little while. I guess I was wrong.

    Yes call-especially if your guys or gals in Springfield are less than "A" rated by the NRA/ISRA.

    The problem is WHEN you call on this what bill is being refered to? The sound of the alarm from ISRA went out but staffers usually want the bill number to note. Does anyone have more specific data or a proposed short title?

    county board defiance..

    I wonder what the Boards who have passed preserve
    the 2nd Amendment resolutions would do with this!!

    Do I sense the beginning of a major confrontation?

    Can anybody explain what's in Kotowski's background that would
    cause him to be this rabid about guns?? (or is he just being
    the paid front-man for Daley's machine??)

    THANKS!
    Steve

    (Seriously reconsidering moving back to Illinois.. NE Missouri looks a LOT better right now!)

    Kotowski was the chairman of Illinois Council against Handgun Violence before he was a state senator. Obviously motivated to get elected so that he could further his own misguided agenda. One trick pony.

    kotowski history

    Thanks, that's step one in reverse.. Now I'm curious how/why he took
    that job (or did he found the Council)..

    Histories like this can be very enlightening.. and useful when
    countering rabid focus like his..

    THANKS!
    Steve

    Looks like, per the good folks on Illinoiscarry.com who watch the statehouse, that Gov. Blago tried to revive the magazine ban in a special session today.

    Left a message with the "good" Senator asking that he focus on getting a budget passed rather then turning law-abiding gun-owners into criminals.

    I'll let you know when the State Police stop by to question me......
