    This is an email I received today...







    Dear hunter9mm,


    I have to quickly tell you where this idea came from. I'm probably
    not the genius you thought I was. If you know a little about
    anti-gunners, you'll know they are ALWAYS trying to pass "one gun a
    month" laws. Pretty self-explanatory - you can only buy one gun, or
    one handgun, each month.

    The excuse is to stop "gun trafficking" although everyone knows
    criminals don't get their guns from gun stores and dealers. It's
    really just a foot in the door law. Next it's one gun a quarter,
    one gun a year, or one gun period.

    That's not what I want to tell you about, though. Today I want to
    tell you about a man from Illinois - a very unique man - a once
    valuable asset to the self-defense movement. His name is John Birch
    and his website was
    http://www.concealcarry.org. Concealed Carry, Inc. to
    be exact.

    Based in Oak Brook, surrounded by some of the most factually
    ignorant and sheepish people around, close to the heart of the beast
    of a city Chicago - famed as the murder capital of the country for
    some of recent years, John Birch and Concealed Carry, Inc, started a
    stir.

    John knew how to say exactly what he thought without mincing words,
    and he had a talent at ******* people off on a regular basis. His
    real strong suit was getting media attention. Media attention that
    brought new allies to the gun rights battle.

    John, with his FFL license, decided that to him One Gun a Month
    meant something truly more noble - finding a person in need in
    dangerous Chicago who could benefit the most from a FREE PISTOL.

    One has to dig into the web archive to see John's handiwork, but
    there it is. Media attention galore! National and even
    international media attention. What did it do? Raise awareness of
    the issue in Illinois.

    The political and legal climate wasn't quite ready for such a move,
    however. Concealed carry hadn't made it to as many states, the
    Supreme Court had not yet ruled that yes the 2nd Amendment does
    protect an individual right to own and carry weapons for personal


    protection. There wasn't as much "container carry" in Illinois, and

    certainly no Open Carry events to my knowledge up in Wisconsin.

    But now, things are quite different. In Illinois, county-by-county
    concealed carry is being acknowledged by county resolution. Some
    counties have even pushed to get legislation passed to allow people
    to carry. Police organizations and other highly-influential orgs
    are publicly supporting concealed carry.

    Wisconsin has passed it not once, but twice! Only to fall short one
    and then two votes short of overriding anti-gun bigot
    Gov. Jim Doyle's veto.

    If you didn't see the survey over at ICarry.org, I'll tell you the
    results have come in so far exactly as I expected. It's time to
    call in the troops. The slow-to-act gun owners across Illinois and
    Wisconsin needn't be fearful of being on the "losing" team any
    longer.

    Hopefully this was interesting to you. Hopefully we can honor the
    memory of the original One Gun a Month giveaway with our own. If
    things go well, it will have to be one gun for each Wisconsin and
    Illinois. Then perhaps a third gun for out-of-state supporters.


    Thanks for taking a few minutes to read this. Huge thanks goes to:

    BulletStop Gun Shop for helping to make this all possible!!!

    Scorpio

    I can only assume that most members here know about ICarry.

    I think your asking me about my point??

    That would be that they are giving away a gun-a-month to INCLUDE Wisconsin residents.

    I figured there aren't too many members that would turn down a free gun. :celebrate
