As what usually happens when gun control doesn't function in an echo chamber of censorship, they get outnumbered and lose.
In this case, Niles, IL was debating a permit for a gun shop in an industrial zone. Bloomberg supporters have a conniption fit because it would be 'within walking distance' of some schools/parks then try to play some of the standard parlor tricks w/ the debate. Well the main committee punted it to 'zoning' which held their meeting last night. PuSH'ers were outnumbered 3-1 at least.
According to the ISRA, the anti-gun folks used quite a bit of nonsense as well as attempting to smear the owners of the shop in order to spread the usual fear-mongering, going on about kids wandering through the store and range. They even tried to get Todd Vandermyde, NRA lobbyist thrown out of the meeting.
So tell me again how it's a conspiracy theory that the anti-gun groups will try and get rid of gun shops after mandating 'universal background checks'?
