Illinois --(Ammoland.com)- Supporters of the Second Amendment battle to defeat the Chicago handgun ban know and revere Mr. Otis McDonald, the lead plaintiff in the landmark case which is bringing about change in gun laws all across the nation.
What many may not know is that this quiet, unassuming gentleman is a stalwart Democrat who has turned to Bill Brady, the Republican candidate for Illinois governor, in order to preserve and protect what he and the other three plaintiffs in the case fought so hard to win.
When incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn pushed for a ban on all semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns and proudly announced he would ban any concealed carry bill that made it to his desk, Mr. McDonald knew he needed to do something to protect the rights he and the other plaintiffs had fought so hard to regain.
He decided to publicly endorse Sen. Brady for governor.
Mr. McDonald says he believes Sen. Bill Brady will stand behind his pledge to preserve and protect the Second Amendment.
Sen. Bill Brady has long been a friend to Illinois gun owners, speaking often at Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day. When hundreds of women gathered at the Governors office to demand their right to protect themselves it was Bill Brady who met with them because Pat Quinn wouldnt even come to the door. Sen. Brady has said he will not only sign a Right to Carry bill but will work hard to make it happen.
