Gun Forum Moved to Glenview to Accommodate Crowd

The free public forum will focus on the issues of school shootings, gun laws and what should be done to prevent future massacres.

The New Trier Democrats will host a free public forum on gun control on Sunday at 2 p.m, entitled "Guns and Public Safety: Where We Stand After Sandy Hook."

The forum has been moved to the Glenview Police Station Auditorium, 2500 East Lake Avenue in Glenview, because organizers are prepping for “an anticipated larger audience,” according to an article in Wilmette Life. It was originally going to be held at the Wilmette Public Library.

The forum will focus on a variety of gun-related topics, including concealed carry laws, gun statistics, school shootings, gun registration and what's happening in Congress.

The executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association told Wilmette Life that members from his organization will attend the event.

I attended the event with my 8 yr. old Son, D.J. and we had a great time with our pals from Illinois Riflemans Association and Conceal Carry.com It was a great turn out, with over 90% attending, being from our Pro-Gun Groups. The Woman representing The New Trier Township Group was rude and nasty to me and my Son, but that was a good educational experience for D.J., to find out first hand, how the forces of Anti-Gunners treat other people. We did meet a nice young lady from Wisconsin, that thought she supported gun-control... we gave her a hug! Look forward to ther next event, hopefully, it will be warmer!
