MEETINGS ON THE 3rd
WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH 7PM at
Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) FORMS
This month, instead of having a speaker,
we will have an open forum. These sessions are usually very informative
and give you, our members, a chance to ask questions, share some of your
knowledge and make suggestions of what you would like the WCGR committee
(and the ISRA) to focus on in the future. Come on down and enjoy an
evening with us...and don't forget to bring a friend!
WCGR Gun Giveaway
Will County ISRA member, Michael Dougherty, was the name drawn for the WCGR Gun Giveaway last month. Unfortunately for Michael, he was not present so we will draw another name this month. Remember, the winner must be present, be an ISRA member, have a valid FOID and comply with all local, state and federal laws.
Last month, our speaker talked about the guns used in WWI and many other very interesting things about the War. Some interesting tidbits that you may not know about are that Winston Churchill was the Secretary of the Navy during WW I; the Italians changed sides during the War. In the Middle East, the borders were drawn and Iraq was formed.
The Mad minute was
a term used when firing at least 15
Amazingly, none of the major media covered this: a hospital in Darby, PA doesnít allow anyone to carry a handgun on its premises, even if that person is a licensed CCW holder. Well, it just so happened that one of the workers there, Dr. Lee Silverman (a legal CCW permit holder), decided to defy their rules. He told no one so it wasnít until a patient, who had armed himself and gunned down a case worker, was approaching Dr.Silverman with intent to kill. After the patient opened fire on Dr. Silverman, the good doctor pulled out his gun and fired, hitting the gunman three times. The police chief said he is positive the doctor saved many lives that day and that the assailant would have just kept walking down the hall, shooting, until he ran out of ammunition. The district attorney also stated that if Dr.Silverman had not defied the hospitalís policy of bringing the handgun to work, the doctor and others would now be dead. It is amazing to me that almost all the major media, and far too many politicians, defy common sense and try to push their anti-gun agenda, rather than allow individuals to save lives.more
