Illinois State Rifle Association Blasts Gun ‘Control’ Supporters In Crain’s Opinion Piece

“A group of civil rights activists on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against three Chicago suburbs to force them to take stricter gun-control measures to stem the flow of weapons into the city’s crime-ridden neighborhoods…”

-Reuters, July 7, 2015

I just got finished reading an opinion piece this morning on the Crain’s Chicago Business website that was written by Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. Pearson and the ISRA threw down the gauntlet at gun “control” supporters in Chicago and elsewhere in the state who keep pushing for more restrictive laws, despite the fact that criminals- as the term suggests- don’t follow such laws when they need to get their hands on a firearm. Instead, law-abiding Illinoisans and their ability to effectively defend themselves against the bad guys are impacted. Pearson suggested gun “control” advocates turn their focus to “crime control” instead.

A sensible recommendation, especially when you consider Chicago was recently ranked dead last in federal prosecution of gun crimes and it’s routinely-reported in the local news these days that yet another criminal found guilty of a firearm-related crime went on to commit more of the same.

Pearson wrote:

Like all people of good conscience, Illinois’ lawful firearm owners abhor the violence taking place in our communities. After all, we and our families live here too. That being said, we are not going to accept the role of scapegoat for failed social policies. We will not accept a brand of politics that prefers to heap rules on people who follow rules rather than holding those who do not follow the rules accountable. We never will agree that gun control is an acceptable substitute for crime control…

It’s a good read, which you can view in its entirety over on the Crain’s website here.
