Either way, whoever did write it didn't do much fact checking.
As Rep. Conyers pleaded for opponents of the legislation to speak up, a representative of the Illinois Rifle Association stood up....First of all, it's the Illinois State Rifle Assoc. (ISRA) not Illinois Rifle Assoc. I'm sure the shortening of it to IRA was purely accidental. Right?
...the IRA rep must have realized that the flagrant flaws in his logic would have been exposed.
Second of all, the rep wasn't from the ISRA, he was from the NRA.
The confusion is understandable though when even the statewide group outnumbers the gun controllers in the state by thousands, just like the NRA outnumbers the BC nationwide.
And they also want us to overlook the fact that all the incidents they mentioned occurred in BC endorsed gun free zones.
