I thought the law was if you were open carrying you had to have a FOID and IL will not issue FOID to non-residents.October 30th - Zion, IL - OPEN CARRY EVENT @ 1st Class Firearms
One of ICarry.org's members and volunteers has organized an event in Zion, Illinois at 1st Class Firearms - http://www.1stclassfirearms.com
We are planning on collecting toys for Toys 4 Tots - seeing as how the holiday's are approaching and there are many kids who could use a little happiness and compassion for Christmas.
Someone is working on a flyer right now, and it will be posted as soon as it's finished. Otherwise, there is more discussion about this event over at this thread: http://www.icarry.org/ftopict-3951.html
The event should be well-attended, and everyone is welcome. Pro-gun organizations are welcome, political candidates, Wisconsin citizens, and anyone who wants to be part of open carry pioneering in Illinois. Our last event in Loves Park, IL (Rockford) was a wonderful success, with approximately 75 or so people open carrying throughout the day, lots of fun deals, raffles, a shooting contest, and much more. We don't know what all activities will be available at this event, but it's sure to be just as successful as the last.
Hope to see you there!!!
I hate to use this word too extensively; but again my fellow carriers we have a morale obligation to support our brothers in Illinois, who toil endlessly against the oppresive laws in their state. this event is within reach of many in southern Wisconsin. Let's get some members down there to show our support, and appreciation for all that our brothers have done in Illinois to help us in Wisconsin. I am planning to attend, and bring my children with!
