ALTON, Ill. – To help keep Metro East residents aware of new legislation, laws and proposals that would affect the rights of law-abiding gun owners, state Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, is partnering with the Illinois State Rifle Association to host a gun rights update.

 “As a staunch supporter of Second Amendment rights for constituents, I have fought against the new restrictions the legislature has enacted on law-abiding gun owners in Illinois,” said Bristow. “However, it is important that everyone who owns a firearm is aware of the new changes that the New Year brings, and I want to ensure my constituents stay updated and know how these new pieces of legislation will affect them.”

 Bristow’s Gun Rights Update will be on Thursday, February 21 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. hosted in the Trap House of the Alton-Wood River Sportsmen’s Club, located at 3109 Godfrey Rd., in Godfrey. A representative from the Illinois State Rifle will be in attendance to discuss recent legislation and answer questions. An RSVP is encouraged.

“I hope to use this update to not only educate residents about the new laws facing them, but to also hear their suggestions on how we in the legislature can better protect their Second Amendment Rights,” continued Bristow. “I will continue to oppose legislation that creates an onerous burden on lawful gun owners and small firearms businesses in the state.”
