Citing a negative economy, the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (http://www.ichv.org/)has decided to close their Springfield office. They've had to lay off longtime employees, too. (See the pdf for the actual letter)

ICHV received the following grants from the Joyce Foundation (http://www.joycefdn.org/content.cfm/grant-list?rr=1&OrderBy=GrantName&OrderAsc=1&Program=Gun%20Violence&pageNum=1):


2004 - $300,000 To create a new network of state-based gun violence prevention groups.
2004 - $400,000 To educate the public about the risks of guns in the home and to enhance its media and communications presence (including on the Internet), its statewide organizing, and coalition building, and its funding and membership base.
2005 - $325,000 For continued support of its public, media, and policy-maker education efforts to promote firearm policy reform in Illinois.
2006 - $770,000 for For its public, media, and policy-maker education efforts to promote firearm policy reform in Illinois.
2008 - $290,000 For continued support of its public, media, and policy-maker education efforts to promote firearm policy reform in Illinois.
2009 - $350,000 For continued support of its public, media, and policy-maker education efforts to promote firearm policy reform in Illinois, and to integrate the activities of the Illinois Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence into the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence
2010 - $175,000 For general operations.


Over the last 6 years (the 2011 grants aren't out yet) the Joyce Foundation has given ICHV $2.6 million.

And this guy beat them (the guy on the right).

Imagine what we could do if the Calguns Foundation had one tenth the funding that the Joyce Foundation gives.

Please help CGF win this fight. (https://www.calgunsfoundation.org/donate.html)

We.

Are.

Winning.

Aww, this breaks my heart. Actually, does this mean I'm now expected to pay their unemployment benefits and welfare? It's not like they have a useful specialty.

There's always room for evildoers in the .gov.

Really? NRA was founded on elevating firearm safety and marksmanship. Nothing since 1873 has changed that.
