The following press release was issued today by the Illinois State Rifle Association:
"If you watched the news you may have seen the exchange between California Senator Diane [sic] Feinstein and Texas Senator Ted Cruz. The most telling substance that came out of that discussion was Feinstein's attitude toward the Second Amendment and anyone who supported The Right to Keep and Bear Arms. There is no question the Feinstein is an arrogant elitist. She indicated she and her left wing posse would pass as many anti-gun bills as possible and if the Second Amendment advocates wanted their rights back they could take their case to the Supreme Court of the United States.
"One of the Founding Fathers described the United States Constitution as the chains that bind the government to protect the people from the government. People like Diane [sic] Feinstein is why the Constitution is there. Don't be fooled. People like her exist at all levels of government. The State Capitol is no exception. I know that some of you get tired of all the alerts but please remember the price of liberty is vigilance combined with action.
"The next two weeks the General Assembly will be in recess for Spring break. The ISRA will still be working for you."
Notice the statement of Sen. Dick Durbin!
