A message from Mickey Schuch, President, McHenry County Right To Carry Association:
Who else is tired of yard signs and political phone calls? I know I am.
We are less than 2 weeks away from a monumental change to our local, state and federal governments.
Changing up our Governor’s office will be a huge upset to the Whitehouse and just as important it will be a huge success for those that respect our constitution here in Illinois.
Have you gone out to vote yet? The NRA has issued their ratings on candidates. Here is the link. https://www.nrapvf.org/grades/Illinois/
Some folks have told me Bruce Rauner has been non committal on gun control questions.
Here is what I know, Quinn wants all guns gone as do his supporters and donors, enough said.
Quinn, Madigan and their whole crew are very much in favor of repealing our concealed carry law and as you read this they are feverishly pushing for new “assault weapons” bans. GO VOTE!
We are estimating that some of these races will be so close they will go down in the history books. In order to prevail, every single vote counts. GO VOTE!
Lets talk locally. We have a sheriff race here in McHenry County that has been much publicized these past couple of years.
I personally met all three candidates months prior to the primary election. I asked all of them how they felt about the 2nd amendment and our personal right to carry for self protection (this was prior to passage of the bill here in Illinois).
My personal feelings had me endorsing Bill Prim. He was the only one that was unequivocal in his response. His belief coincided with mine and I chose to support his candidacy and continue to do so.
We also have an independent candidate running.
His response to my question was to tell me I was not a schooled attorney and as such would not understand the nuances of the Constitution.
He went on to tell me that many people falsely interpret the Bill of Rights and the second amendment in particular.
It does not spell out that we citizens have a right to own and possess weapons for defense of self and home, it was for militia work.
At that point I asked why he thought I would possibly endorse or help in his candidacy as the very premise of our organization is to promote and proliferate the freedom he just had explained (in his opinion) was non existent. H
is response was that I was not a constitutional attorney and it would take too long to explain it to me.
For the record I am not an attorney.
I am a simple carpenter, God fearing family man and a true blue believer in the amazing experiment that is these United States.
Ultimately there is no freedom without the most basic of rights, that being to exist, breathe and if need be defend oneself and family from predation and violence.
Every living creature has instilled in it a hardwired desire to live to the next sunrise.
This is our right.
The founders knew that men would twist the truth and attempt to reinterpret the very fabric of our society for their own causes.
This why each generation must have some who embrace the cause of liberty and will take up the mantle to defend her.
If not, then God help us.
It is our Duty to protect our freedoms. We do this in a huge way by voting for those that stand for right.
GO VOTE! Are you starting to see a pattern here?
No political figure is the savior of all our ills and no man or woman is perfect but there quite simply are two types running for offices.
There are those that seek to change and erode the fabric of our laws and customs and there are those that wish to rebuild and repair that which has been damaged.
You cannot do both. GO VOTE!
Early Voting is open. Here are the McHenry County locations. https://www.co.mchenry.il.us/home/showdocument?id=34211
Tell your friends, neighbors, family and whoever will listen to please go vote between now and November 4th. Folks say “I don’t know who to vote for.” I’m sure you can offer some advice.
I told you a few years back that we could move mountains and we have.
Let us finish together what we started.
I truly believe we are making huge impact on things to come.
Our 2nd amendment freedoms will continue to be repaired here in Illinois and this election cycle is vital for continuation of these repairs.
I believe in our cause of freedom, I believe in you and I know you will do whatever it takes to do your part.
If anyone would like to discuss any of this further I will make time to talk with you.
