For such a nice guy, Mr. Terstegge sure seems to have a lot of people interested in his life and scrutinizing his every move. Seems like people who have no involvement in this and little if any direct knowledge of the issue would be better served by minding their own business.

Sullivan gets NRA endorsement

2 years, 6 months ago by Bob Gough

State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) today received the endorsement from the National Rifle Association.

Sullivan and Todd Vandermyde of the NRA appeared at Quincy’s Clat Adams Park this morning to discuss the endorsement and second amendment issues.

“I cannot stress enough how important it is that we have a strong pro-gun, downstate voice like John Sullivan in a leadership role in Springfield to advocate for Second Amendment Issues,” said Vandermyde. “John Sullivan’s leadership has been critical to blocking anti-gun legislation.”

Sullivan pledged to Vandermyde that he would work to bring a Concealed Carry vote to the Senate floor, but Vandermyde said there are lawsuits in play that the NRA is supporting that he hopes will force the issue.

“People want to cut out Chicago and have different laws, but when you’re talking about constitutional rights, they don’t change because of the zip code,” Vandermyde said.

Vandermyde said he believes support in the Illinois House and Senate for the issue is growing, but it still doesn’t have the support of Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago).

“President Cullerton is a long time supporter of gun control measures and Illinois' current law on concealed carry,” said Cullerton spokesperson Phelon Rikeesha. His stance reflects the position of the majority of those living in his district.”

“Second Amendment rights are a personal issue for me, and I’m grateful for the support of the NRA.” Sullivan said.

Sullivan’s opponent, Republican Randy Frese of Paloma, also issued a news release regarding the NRA today, saying he received the group’s highest rating.

“As an avid sportsman and advocate of gun rights, this rating is important to me.  I am a proud member of the NRA and, as senator of the 47th District, I will staunchly defend my constituent’s gun right,” Frese said.  “My first bill that I pledge to file will be for conceal and carry to be a right in Illinois.  Law abiding citizens should have a right to protect themselves, their family and their property.  I will advocate on their behalf and on behalf of the NRA in the senate.”
