Petition Drive Fundraiser Concert for Illinois Libertarians

photoThe Chicago Libertarian Party Meetup Group

This event isn’t hosted by LP Chicago, but we wanted to spread the word, so we’re reposting it here…it promises to be a fun night!

Come out for an awesome night of fun while helping to get stuff done: meet our candidates and help support the Petition Drive to get them on the ballot in November!!

Jason Kluss will open the night with an acoustic set, and NatureDevil will take over for the later part of the night to rock out and bring the power. Throughout the night, there will be an auction to help raise money that goes straight to the Libertarian Party of Illinois for the Petition Drive. Prizes will be awarded, things will be for sale, and candidates will speak (and perhaps perform?) on stage for everyone. We will also have a notary on site to notarize any petitions you would like to turn in to a Petition Coordinator, who will also be on site. This date falls smack dab in the middle of the Petition Drive, so updates and information will be available to keep everyone updated on how we are doing. More information will be added as details get confirmed, but for now – this is an event you won’t want to miss.

Confirmed guests:
Julie Fox, candidate for Comptroller
Chris Michel, candidate for Secretary of State Alex “AJ” Cummings, candidate for Lt. Governor
Sharon Hansen, candidate for US Senate
For updates to this information, please see the Facebook event at: https://www.facebook….

Hope to see you there!

The Chicago Libertarian Party April Meetup: It’s Petitioning Season!

photoThe Chicago Libertarian Party Meetup Group

If you’re interested in Liberty, you are invited to join us for our Monthly Meetup. You don’t have to be a “member” of the Libertarian Party to attend. Here’s an opportunity to spend an evening with like-minded individuals discussing what’s important to us…freedom!

Every other month we have a business meeting which lasts about an hour, which you’re welcome to attend. After that, and on alternate months, we just get together to talk about what’s going on: in politics, books we’ve read, movies to see, events to attend, and how to spread the word about Liberty.

This month is not a business meeting, but a casual get-together. We are in the midst of petitioning for ballot access. Come hear what you can do to help get our Libertarian candidates on the ballot in Illinois. For more information, and forms to download, please see http://lpillinois.org…

Hilltop Restaurant is at Foster & California. We’ve got a private room, and there’s free parking available in the lot behind the restaurant. Attendance is free. There is a menu available if you’d like to order food, but they do not sell alcohol. You may BYOB if you’d like. http://www.allmenus.c…

Hope to see you there. Bring a friend, even!

The Chicago Libertarian Party February Meetup: Illinois Gun laws

photoThe Chicago Libertarian Party Meetup Group

Join the Libertarian Party of Chicago and guest Michael Ranger from Article 2 Gun Range in Lombard. For our February meetup, we plan to have an informal discussion about the recent changes to Illinois Law and how they affect you and firearm ownership. On July 9, 2013, Illinois became the last state in the country to allow the concealed carry of firearms and on January 5, 2014, the state police began accepting permit applications. To legally possess or purchase firearms or ammunition, residents of the state of Illinois are required to have a FOID (Firearm Owners Identification) card. The FOID card is NOT a “concealed carry” card. We will provide attendees with a FOID application and give general guidance to those seeking more information about acquiring or possessing a firearm or firearm ammunition within the State.

We will be meeting at Hilltop Restaurant, 2800 W. Foster Ave (Foster & California). We’ve got a private room, and there’s free parking available in the lot behind the restaurant.

Attendance is free. You do not have to be a “member” of the Libertarian Party to attend. Bring a friend, even! There is a menu available if you’d like to order food, but they do not sell alcohol. You may BYOB if you’d like. http://www.allmenus.c…

Whether you are an experienced gun enthusiast or simply looking for an introduction to the sport of shooting, staying informed on the legal aspects of gun ownership is the first step in exercising your second amendment right. Hope to see you there!
