Event Description

What's up with Conceal Carry in Illinois? While many thought it was a "done deal", the "central planners" who run our state have other ideas. Meanwhile, thugs continue to assault and kill citizens of Chicago by the score. In light of this, we look forward to our guest speaker for our July meeting, Mr. Andre Queen, President, Fidelity Security & Investigative Services, Inc. Mr. Queen is the Chicago area spokesperson for "Illinois Carry", a grass roots organization in Illinois focused on bringing lawful concealed carry to the citizens of Illinois. Mr. Queen is a member of the National Rifle Association, the Illinois Rifle Association and the Citizen's Defense League of Chicago. He will bring us the latest information on the status of our 2nd Amendment rights in Illinois.

Mr. Queen's twenty-eight years in law enforcement includes public and private sector work. His investigative casework has included everything from homicides to auto theft, and includes civil as well as criminal investigative work. Mr. Queen's specialties include retail investigations and operations, skip tracing, fraud investigations, missing persons and fugitive investigations.  Among Mr. Queen's accomplishments include being a certified NRA Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor, a certified TASER ECD Instructor, a Force-on-force Safety Instructor, a Certified MILO Instructor, a certified Weapons Retention Instructor, and a retired auxiliary Deputy Chief of Police Services. Mr. Queen has testified in court proceedings in Illinois regarding firearms as an expert witness. He is a member in good standing of the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA), the International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI), the National Association of Investigative Specialists (NAIS), as well as other professional organizations and associations. 

Also at our July meeting, we will offer tips on emergency preparedness and special products we've found to help people to be prepared for disasters: natural or man-made. Come prepared to share you own tips on preparedness!
