State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, and representatives from the Illinois State Rifle Association will partner to offer a free gun rights seminar to review Illinois law and assist residents with Firearm Owner Identification Card applications.
The event will is scheduled 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26 at the Streator American Legion Post 217, 218 W. Main St. This event is open to the public.
“Every day, Chicago politicians are actively working to make new laws to restrict law-abiding citizens’ rights,” Yednock said in a press statement. “I proudly voted against the legislation that would revoke peoples’ FOID cards, and Illinois should be focused on helping people with mental illness while cracking down on repeat offenders.”
“Rep. Yednock has protected the rights of responsible gun owners, and I am glad to partner with him to help local residents understand their rights,” said Richard Pearson, Executive Director for the Illinois State Rifle Association, in a press statement. “With Second Amendment rights under attack by Chicago politicians, Illinois needs more leaders to defend peoples’ rights.”
