Today, more than ever, our Second Amendment rights are under attack. Anti-gunners seem only concerned with one thing, taking away our guns. It starts with a ban on certain types of firearms, then magazines and firearm accessories, then a total firearm ban leaving us unable to defend ourselves or our loved ones. Unlike criminals, we follow the law, securing a Firearm Owners Identification Card, attending classes for a Concealed Carry Permit, submitting to a criminal background check, and paying all the necessary fees. We play by the rules, but unjustly get blamed for all the acts of gun violence.
State Representative Avery Bourne is a strong advocate for law abiding gun owners and consistently votes against bills that would restrict your gun rights. If you feel as strongly as I do about preserving the Second Amendment, as well as all of our Constitutional rights, please join me in supporting Avery on November 6. A vote for Avery Bourne is a vote to preserve our Second Amendment rights. Additionally, do not forget to vote NO on the ballot measure asking if the Illinois Legislature should pass additional gun restrictive legislation. We must vote NO to send a message that we do not support more restrictions on guns.
I would like to encourage all voters to be informed before you go to the polls. Know how our legislators voted on issues important to you by going to the Illinois General Assembly web site at www.ilga.gov
