It's obvious to me, that we should have heard from a spokes person from the Armed Females of America,

They ruined a good article with this ridiculous "word from their Sponsor". Where was the Armed Females when it was time to fight against those laws in Morton Grove, Winnetka, Oak Park and Evanston?

The NRA will probably be involved when the villagers start to try to change the law again. Will the Armed Females contribute as much time and energy?

Thanks for your predictable (and hopefully unpaid) pro-NRA statement. Did you ever consider that the Armed Females of America didn't exist when these laws were passed? I looked and couldn't find out the exact date of their founding, but I never heard of them until at least the time of the infamous MMM - meaning that they almost certainly didn't exist in the early 1980's (when Morton Grove passed its handgun ban).

I would hope that the NRA would provide some impetus to jumpstart the effort to get these (unconstitutional) laws changed, but if that's been done in the past I've never heard about it. NOW, by the way, would be an excellent time to begin that process, while this case is still in the news. As for AFA - yes, I would expect them to be very involved. In fact, I'll bet that they will put in more time and energy - per member - than the NRA. Take a look at their website, and tell me if you honestly think that they are less pro-gun than the NRA. Just to give you a preview: AFA is in favor of repealing all federal firearms legislation, back to and including the '34 NFA (which the NRA helped to craft, as it did the '68 GCA). 'Nuff said.

Just so you know, I've been an NRA member in good standing since 1989, and I've never been an AFA member or contributor. I didn't write this comment to bash the NRA, but to get you to see that reflexively defending the NRA at the expense of other pro-gun organizations isn't always right.
