As this morning dawns clear and blue in Chicago, representatives from the ISRA, IllinoisCarry, the Second Amendment Sisters and others are wrapping up preparations for the third annual Second Amendment Freedom Rally (SAFR) scheduled for 11:00 a.m. at the James R. Thompson Center downtown.  Forecasts predict highs between 77 and 79 degrees with clear blue skies, likely the best weather SAFR has ever enjoyed, but the real news is the level of promotion and news coverage of this year's event.  News outlets from as far away as Japan plan to send American bureau reporters and producers, while Chicago's WLS 890 AM radio station plans to broadcast Cisco Cotto's popular morning show live from the plaza (after his show, which can be heard live here, Cotto will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the planned two-hour SAFR.)

It's not too late for all you Chicagoans out there to make it to SAFR, especially if you work downtown.  Even if you only stop by on your lunch hour between 11:00 and 1:00 p.m., you'll still be able to say you were there!

For more info: Tune into WLS 890 AM or check out for details of the event.
