    skinner or spinner or something else. I challenged him to tell me again how IL was gun friendly but after a week, no response..BTW, it is a 2% tax and we already, if you didn't know it, pay an 11% excise tax on everything related to hunting and fishing.
    How in the heck does our state let it happen.....three counties rule the other 99.......
    Go to IGOLD for one thing.
    Write and call for another.
    There is a link on this site to find your sentator and representative.
    Let them know, politely but firmly, how you feel.

    If you haven't figured it out yet......... Rahm, BO & Hilary WANT YOUR GUNS !!

    That way, they and all their Liberal Elite friends, who clearly have all the answers on how we peasants should live, can stay in control forever.

    GUM CONTROL........ It's Not About Guns, It's about CONTROL. And never, ever forget that.

    Stan,
    The 11% excise tax under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937 is one of the most significant achievements of sportsmen to preserve the outdoor sports. You sound like you oppose it?

    il shooter,
    They will see us! Thousands of us (8,500 last year if I recall correctly) will visit the capitol building and legislative office to personally call on our representatives & senators, as well as the speaker of the house and president of the senate. There is still time to get your bus ticket. Burn a vacation day. That's what I do and it's definitely worth it.
