We need to say NO
To all Gun Violence Presvention Activisits: NWSOFA -Indivsible has issued an alarm regarding a renewed effort to make McHenry County a Gun Sanctuary County (GSC).
What has happened: At the McHenry County Board’s first official County Board meeting with the new board members, a large group of county residents signed up and spoke at public comment concerning the Illinois legislature bill HB5855, the Protect Illinois Communities Act. Pam Althoff is the new Law & Govt Chair and Mike Shorten is the Vice-Chair. It seems they are both willing to have this topic on the next Law & Govt agenda. This happened two years ago and due to public comment and board member’s opinions, right minded county board members were able to keep it off the Law & Govt committee agenda, but this is a different board with different leadership.
The Ask: “We need people to speak at the Law & Govt meeting in January to state that the majority of the residents DO NOT WANT McHenry County to become a gun sanctuary county. Someone stated that 68 of the Illinois Counties are now gun sanctuary counties. We do not want Mchenry County to be the 69th!!
The best way to combat the public comment from those who want the gun sanctuary county is facts, statistics and personal stories.” – Wee have speakers lined up at this time.
Fill the room with ours and other GVP groups…. be a presence.
