The Silencers are Deafening

What if they gave a gun raffle and nobody came?

As readers of this blog are aware ...
Please Pass the Guns and Butter
The Lake County Republicans are hosting a 2nd Amendment Dinner and Gun Raffle fundraiser in Kildeer on Friday.  The controversial event has resulted in a media firestorm and at least one high-profile no-show:
Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor, a Republican, said Thursday evening he would not attend, sponsor or contribute toward the 2nd Amendment Dinner.

Will anyone from the Lake County GOP be in attendance? Your LakeCountyEye notes at least one willing participant:
Larry Falbe, president of the Lake County Republican Federation, an independent group that raises money for Republicans including the local party organization, supported moving forward with the fundraiser. "I would think that canceling the event would suggest there's something wrong or something to be ashamed of for having this kind of dinner that is supporting people who believe very strongly in the 2nd Amendment," said Falbe, whose group bought a sponsorship.

Sharpeyed operatives will observe there is a $75 ticket price to get in the 2nd Amendment Dinner and Gun Raffle. Which may be beyond the means of anyone who draws a blogger's salary. Particularly a blog that hasn't published anything since 2013.

Your LakeCountyEye notes however, that tickets are reduced to $50 for "Joe Walsh Volunteers". Do not be surprised if you see Mr Falbe after all!
