All you Illinois gun owners ready to flood Springfield with mail?
This is a multi-gun organization program.

Dear Illinois Gun Owners,

You are invited to participate in a historical event in Illinois gun owner history! As you know, when the General Assembly adjourned for the holiday break on March 30 many anti-gun owner bills in the Senate were scheduled for a third reading deadline and a vote. Senate President Emil Jones saw fit to extend the deadline on these bills until May 31st and the House deadline for third reading and a vote is April 27th. This means when the General Assembly returns from their holiday break on April 18th the battle for Illinois gun owners' rights will pick right up where it left off . . .

Here's the part about participating in a history making event: MI-GOLD which stands for "MAIL ILLINOIS" - Gun Owner LETTER Day!!! Nearly 1,500 Illinois gun owners attended IGOLD - Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day at the state capitol back in March but many, due to work and family obligations, could not attend. This is a MI-GOLD every gun owner in Illinois can take part in!!

The goal: For the legislators listed below to find THOUSANDS of postcards and letters from Illinois gun owners waiting for them when they return to Springfield on the 18th. There are over a million FOID card holders in the state with over 250,000 in Cook Co. alone. Can you imagine all those folks sending several thousand pieces of mail to be hauled into these legislators' offices??!!

The letters and postcards do not have to be eloquent essays on the finer points of the Second Amendment.
These cards can simply state:

Please oppose any further restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.
Please support our right to carry for personal and family protection.
Vote no on banning guns - vote yes on right to carry.

So grab your pens and paper or a couple dozen postcards, send these folks a message, time your mailing to arrive at the capitol on April 18th!! REMEMBER: Be polite, be persistent, be firm. Let's leave a positive impression of Illinois gun owners.

Please forward this to all the gun owners you know! Let's make this a another day these legislators will remember - a day they heard from Illinois gun owners!

Sincerely,
Valinda Rowe
