ISRA Convention In Springfield

I'm not liveblogging, so I have to be quick while my pants are in the dryer before I run out the door (if I time this right, I'll have the pants on before I get outside.)

  • I got a chance to meet up with several of the crew from IllinoisCarry.com last night. That was a good time!
  • I'm really looking forward to the legislation seminar today. We all agreed last night that we've never seen the kind of neutral, if not positive coverage of CCW in the press that this year has brought. The Sheriff's Association endorsement of the idea has been a big boost. I'm not predicting that it's going to pass this year--yet--but we're going to have a fight about it. I'm a lot more comfortable predicting that there will at least be a floor vote on at least one good CCW bill this year, which means a lot of fence sitters will have to go on record.
  • In addition to the ISRA convention, I'll also be at the New Berlin gun show just outside Springfield today, working at the Sangamon County Grassroots table. Stop by and say hi.
  • I met more than one person last night who was clearly drunk on celebrity. One lady was leaning in very close and regaling me with stories. It was almost embarassing. . . . of course, the celebrity they were so excited about was Richard Simmons. Say what you want about the man, but he was apparently singing into cell phones for people in an elevator in Springfield, Illinois. You think Obama did anything like that for people when he was in the same hotel the week before? Well, OK, maybe that's for the best, but still, Richard Simmons.

I went to the New Berlin gun show today. The place was packed! The paid admission for yesterday was 1,090. I scored three 50 cal ammo boxes a holster for my cz70 and an IGOLD sticker. I had a great time.
