Save the dates if you support the Second Amendment

February 17, 2014 

Readers who are proponents of the Second Amendment are requested to mark their calendar with the following dates: March 5 and March 18.

March 5 is the annual Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day. Participants will visit their district legislators in the Springfield Capitol.

March 18 is the primary election. This is the day that voters should exercise the opportunity to vote. Of specific importance is the election of candidates for senators and representatives to represent Illinois in Washington, D.C., and here in Illinois the office of governor, etc.

Mark the calendar and read, listen, evaluate and vote.
