A communication from Mickey Schuch, President of the McHenry Count Right to Carry Association:
With this most recent terror attack on our servicemen in Chattanooga, we are joining in support of our State Representative Barb Wheeler who has recently called on Governor Rauner to take immediate action to defend our National Guardsman.
Here is an excerpt from her release.
“By prohibiting the arming of our personnel in public facilities, we are making it nearly impossible for our service members to defend themselves”.

In my opinion it’s ludicrous that the very people who swear an oath to defend our citizens and our borders, even to their death, are not allowed the basic right to defend their own life while on duty.
Sadly we have yet another example of the complete fantasy of gun free zones.
Those that oppose our second amendment will point to gun crime statistics, but never admit to you or themselves that the instrument, i.e. the gun, does not walk into a store and commit the robbery, nope it is the human owner of that instrument that chooses to inflict savagery on others.
Why is this so hard to grasp?
It’s high time we begin teaching personal responsibility as the cornerstone of good citizenship, this is a fact not my opinion.
The contradiction of this or related mindsets is a chief eroding factor in our society.
That said, the only way to combat illegal force and violence is with immediate and decisive counter violence against the illegal aggressor.
This is the basis of all real world training.
It has been this way for all of time.
There is nothing new here besides the equipment, from cave dwellers to the present.
We must be decisive now, for our enemies are not deterred by gun free zone signage.
Here is the front window of the recruitment office.
Notice the sign, they are only obeyed by the law abiding.
The gun-free zone myth is an asinine example of ignorant and dangerous politics.
Contact your state rep and senator. Request that they stand with what Representative Wheeler has requested.
Here is a link to Governor Rauner’s contact page to hear your opinion.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the servicemen we lost.
Thank you to all service members living and gone from us.
We must be vigilant and prepared.
Remember to be aware, implement action when needed and protect life and liberty where you are able.
