State Representative Monica Bristow (D-Alton) is hosting a gun rights update a week from Thursday in Godfrey. Her plan is to keep area residents up to date on the latest legislation in Springfield, and has enlisted a representative of the Illinois State Rifle Association to speak at the event.

Bristow tells The Big Z the best way to fight against what have been described as bills that erode gun rights is to keep in touch with her, or whomever your elected representatives may be.
