Gun Rights Town Hall

Join us for a discussion to see if it’s possible to find middle ground on an issue as polarizing as gun rights, especially in light of mass shootings in America & ongoing gun violence in our communities. We will also discuss the “Fix The FOID” Act (SB 1966), a bill that aims to strengthen gun licensing laws in Illinois.
