“Chicago ( add: whose Mayor is a founding member of MAIG) and Evanston as municipalities are opposed to national regulations,” he said.Seems the two positions are contradicting, doesn't it?
“They are for the right to locally regulate the possession of firearms and are not in favor of a national standard.
And when Dennis "What People?" Henigan of the Brady Campaign, states:
" The core of the gun lobby's strategy is to use fear tactics to keep gun owners in a constant state of agitation so that they can be activated to oppose even modest gun law reforms."He's not talking about statements like this, right?
"Despite Evanston’s repeal of the ban, Tisdahl supports keeping guns out of the hands of citizens.
“Evanston is very interested in limiting handguns and banning handguns,” she said.
...we need to get guns out of the hands of young people and all citizens.”
“The Heller decision was rather murky,” she said. “Hopefully there will be several avenues for gun control advocates to chip away at the decision and manage to regain some local control of weapons.”
But, remember, when the NRA and other pro-rights groups talk about gun control advocates wanting to ban and/or confiscate guns as their ultimate goal, it's just using 'fear' and 'paranoia'.
