I'm heading to Springfield.

Iíve told a lot of people about this Illinois gun ban that I spoke about below. Some of the people are just blowing it off as, ďSame shite, different yearĒ. Sure, the anti-gun politicians try to ban firearms every year. This year has a different ring to it though, there has been quite a change up in the politicians in office and the bills they are trying to pass may actually make some headway. Iím worried that this time the bills have more then a snowballs chance in hell of passing.

After talking it over with Ktreva, Iíve taken two days off and I am going to head down to the Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day to show my opposition to anti-gun bills. I wrote a letter to Dave Syverson (My state Senator) and Chuck Jefferson (My state Representative) voicing my opinion. This time, I just donít feel itís enough. It is important for me to take the time and go to Springfield to be counted.

If there is anyone else that is planning on going or is interested in heading that way, let me know. I would love the company.

Spectacular. I wish I could go, too. Expect to receive a full report. You may check the IL State Rifle Assoc. website about the possiblity of riding a bus from somewhere near your location.

I'm royally pissed. I requested the 13th and 14 off and was denied almost before I had finished the paperwork. Seems March is going to be hellishly busy.
Fuckers. What the hell good are vacation days if the bastards wont let you take the damn things?
