A missive from the McHenry County Right to Carry Association:
Nik Clark, president of WisconsinCarry.org starts his letters to his members: “Greetings in Freedom”. Thanks, Nik.
Two members of MCR2CA were at the gun show on February 17 at the Woodstock VFW and manned a display table with information about membership and the upcoming Massad Ayoob training. We welcome the new members who joined us that day. Welcome aboard!
This Friday, February 22, the Illinois House Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing in Chicago. If you want to attend, be at the Michael A. Bilandic Building, 160 N. LaSalle St., Room N-600, well before the 10:00AM starting time. Tuesday’s hearing in Springfield was packed. Arrive early. Will you be going? Gus Philpott, MCR2CA Secretary/Treasurer, will be taking the 7:23AM Metra from Woodstock.
Review the names of the Committee members. Decide how you want to dress to impress them. Will a suit or “business casual” be appropriate? We want them to hear us, not just see us. If you go, take something to hand each of the 16 members, whose names you can find here: www.ilga.gov/house/committees/members.asp?CommitteeID=1192&GA=98 If you go, give us feedback on who is favorable toward the laws that are good for gun owners and whom we need to educate more.
Saturday-Sunday, February 23-24. Visit us at Booth 309 at the Great Outdoor Expo at Woodstock North High School.
Are you an expert “salesperson”? If so, the McHenry County Right to Carry Association is in need of your expert help. As you probably know, MCR2CA has a booth for two days at The Great Outdoors Expo this weekend. We need to get our message out more than ever. If you are able to lend a hand signing up new members at the show, please contact MCR2CA president Mickey Schuch @815-690-0248. The board members will be in attendance both days as well.
