More Arrests of Good Guys and Girls in Illinois

I regret to inform everyone that there have been more arrests of law-abiding gun owners in Illinois the past two months.

One victim (a law-abiding GOOD GUY) is a handicapped man from Chicago. Chris Morley has cerebral palsy, walks with a cane, and has carried his unloaded pistol in a case for nearly a decade. He has used it to prevent at least 3 violent attacks. However, when he wasn't feeling well at work one day, his employer went through his personal belongings, found the pistol, and called the police. Morley is now being prosecuted as a criminal for owning and carrying a pistol ACCORDING TO ILLINOIS STATE LAW.

Another victim gun-owner shall remain nameless, but the young woman and Iraq war veteran was arrested on her way to a shooting range up in Wisconsin. She didn't quite make it over the border and she was pulled over, harassed, searched without cause, and then subsequently arrested for having an unloaded pistol in a case at the bottom of a bunch of junk in her rear storage area.

I get these calls on nearly a monthly basis. Calls, emails, and even one instant message. I'm so tired of hearing horror stories that I've decided to do something about it. Well, that and the fact that I have lived through horror stories myself and been persecuted for owning and carrying guns. Well, there's a way to put a stop to it.

The Gun Owners Fellowship is a nationwide initiative to protect gun owners by creating an effective network for fund raising. Members support one another if and only if the support is needed.

LIFETIME Membership is only $29.99 right now (introductory price ends in less than 2 months). No additional fees or dues. You will never pay another dime unless someone else in the fellowship really truly needs it.

Through 12/31/08 when the $29.99 promotion ends, we will be donating $10 per membership to Chris Morley's defense fund. Chris Morley has been an active player in the gun rights movement in Illinois and he deserves the help as much as anyone else. Chris is a small guy, walks with a cane, can't run away or fight off an attacker and he deserves the right to have a way to protect himself. The fellowship is putting its money where its mouth is and lending him a hand in this tough time. Chris lost his job and has since been unable to find new work because of the arrest.

Please don't delay -- check it out, see how it works, and we know you'll like it. Join the group -- the larger the fellowship gets the more effective it becomes. Join today.
Help us take back Illinois!

i am a IL resident. the ONLY time i have my gun with me, in the trunk of my car is to and from the gun range. you really just can't leave it there and allow it to collect dust. i would worry about that. not in IL. not with our state police!!!.... case in point; i have been ticketed for such things as DRIVING THE SPEED LIMIT IN THE LEFT LANE. that's right, pulled over and harassed by a state cop for abiding the law. when i went to court the judge rummaged thru the law book and could not see a valid reason for the ticket and dismissed it... i can't even IMAGINE if that particular cop had looked in my trunk and found a pistol. i'd probably have been arrested on the spot, just cuz.

the laws need to change here. gun owners are made to feel like criminals just for owning a gun. and the IL state police need to get the huge sticks out their rumps.

I don't drive in the left lane unless I am passing. I draw less attention that way. Less chance of being stopped.
