Gun Owners Prepares To Rally in Springfield


This year’s Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day is going to be a celebration, according to one of the organizers.

 

Valinda Rowe from IllinoisCarry.com says the annual lobby day will focus not just on pending legislation and court battles but also on past successes.

 

Rowe says she has personally been involved in lobbying lawmakers to bring about concealed carry in the state, and though she says it’s not a perfect law, the first permits being mailed out over the weekend means this year’s I-GOLD will be upbeat.

 

Thousands of gun owners from across the state are expected to converge on Springfield with a rally at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Wednesday morning and then an early afternoon march through the streets of Springfield to the capital building to lobby lawmakers.
