A Terrible Irony
Nothing said here should be taken as criticism of either CCRKBA or the folks in Illinois valiantly fighting to reclaim their state from the Chicago political/criminal machine (see, e.g., the latest outrage by Blago, Daley, et al., including the peaceably-named "einsatzgruppen"...uh, make that "special action groups"...uh, sorry, "elite tactical teams").
Anybody who can make this meeting should do so.
But click on the screenshot above and look at the second line of the notice:
Don't be armed in any way -- flashlights, knives, etc.
Heckuva of a commentary on the state of American freedom and the RKBA in this post-Heller environment, wouldn't you say?
At a public meeting to support a resolution backing the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution in the fifth most populous state in the Union, attendees must fully disarm themselves, even to the point of removing their flashlights, before the government will allow them to enter the meeting area.
Think about that, good and long and hard.
Is it any wonder why our governmental masters and their bullyboys at the local, state, and Federal levels sincerely believe that they can do whatever they wish without any fear of a peasant uprising?
Do you blame the overlords and their thugs for that belief?
