A message from Mickey Schuch, President of McHenry County Right to Carry:
It is time once again for ILLINOIS GUN OWNERS LOBBY DAY, otherwise known as IGOLD.
I am fortunate to be around many shooters,competitors, gun nuts, and concealed carry holders and it amazes me how many don’t have any idea that IGOLD exists and further more don’t really care.
This is the day that we communicate with the elected officials and provide them feedback on what is needed.
This is by far the largest event of its kind in our state and maybe any state. This is not for fun. It is in fact how things get done.
Hold on I’ll be right back……gotta grab my soap box………….
Don’t get mad at the message because I think I am on pretty solid ground here.
We have a small contingent of citizens that bear the load for the majority of the populous in the fight to protect, promote and restore the freedoms defined by the 2nd amendment of our sacred US Constitution.
This has never sat well with me, not when there are so many good people that share in our ideals.
That fact alone gets me hot but let’s go a bit further.
So many of the conservative minded gun crowd are the first ones to rant on their FaceBook page about people sucking off the system while “us” hard working folks carry them.
These finger pointers of social injustice are the same folks I never see doing anything to protect their beloved freedoms.
Do you see the disconnect?
These same people said we would never have concealed carry in Illinois, WRONG. A concerted and directed effort moved a mountain.
The above mentioned complainers are the same people I hear saying our CCL law is too strict or too expensive or too whatever.
Quit the wasted words, get up and make a difference in the world.
Don’t let another carry your load.
I was honored to be asked by Valinda Rowe of Illinois Carry to be the parade marshal this year.
We need volunteers to help direct the flow of people to and through the capital.
It has always gone off smoothly and safely and we will continue to uphold the high standards of this event.
If you are willing to step up and volunteer please email me.
If you can’t volunteer but our 2nd amendment and US constitution is sacred to you please attend and let your voice be heard.
I’ll attach a link with all the details at the bottom as well as my contact information.
Sometimes standing up for what you believe in really requires you to stand up.
We need you, your fellow citizens need you. Heed the call of Lady Liberty.
One more thing.
Our friends from Misson 22 will be attending IGOLD to pass on the message of hope.
They have been instrumental in the fight against veteran suicide.
The founders were members of elite US special operations units.
Just the sort of men you want on a mission that must be successful.
Check out the link below and support the cause.
I hope to see you in Springfield on April 6th.
Remember to be aware, implement action when needed and protect life and liberty where you are able.
