The Rockford Tea Party is hosting an open carry event at the Bullet Stop Gun Shop in Loves Park, IL. Sunday June 17th 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

I believe this will be the THIRD open carry event in Illinois history. So I'm excited about that. And I don't even have to travel very far (10 minutes ) to attend!!! Very cool indeed!!! I know the owner of the Bullet Stop personally, and I've spoken to the police chief of loves park in the past, so anyone interested in coming does not need to worry about arrests or anything else. The last time, when ICarry.org had Illinois' first open carry event at the Bullet Stop, the only cop I saw there was a guy that came in the morning to get work done on his AR. Other than that we had like 75 people open carry that day and no police presence even. So come out, I'm sure there will be food there or something, and have a good time with the family.

Here is the facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/events/447494098610914/

Here is the event description from facebook:

Second Annual True Grit event will also be an Open Carry Event with Bullet Stop Gun Shop and the Rockford Tea Party together again hosting a 2nd amendment Rally on Sunday, June 17th from 2-4 pm at 2100 Harlem Road in Loves Park.

At this event we will have a petition to sign that seeks County Board Approval to pass a Conceal Carry Ordinance Locally. The last time it came up for a vote was in 2008, and it was defeated by the majority Democrats and RINO's. This time we have the advantage of seeking a vote on this before the November Elections so that every elected County Board member to include the Chairman will have to cast a vote that will give us all a clear view of where they stand on our God given rights to keep and bear arms. We hope you will attend and sign this very important petition.

Constitution of the State of Illinois
ARTICLE I
BILL OF RIGHTS

SECTION 22. RIGHT TO ARMS
Subject only to the police power, the right of the
individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be
infringed.

This will be an exciting event with the Bullet Stop Gun Shop standing up and defending our Rights Given by God to keep and bear arms.

Both I and my wife attended the very first one and really enjoyed it. Have to say however, if/when CCW is approved, I will have to purchase a lighter gun, for I sure don't want to be carrying this 45ACP all day.....darn thing is heavy.
Anyway we have 3 unrelated events going on in June and I will find out if their is a conflict......sure hope not. Thanks for the notice. With so many anti-gun petitions circulating through Springfield, which can be a total downer for so many right to carry citizens in ILL. I'm glad it has not diminished our resolve and we still can have events such as these.
