As many of you know, in addition to his role here at TTAG, John Boch is also the executive director of Guns Save Life, the central Illinois gun rights advocacy group. Among other duties, John spends a lot of his time in Springfield lobbying for gun owners’ right to keep and bear arms. No small feat in a legislature dominated by Chicago-area anti-gun crusaders.
This morning, John got up at OMG-dark-thirty for a Fox & Friends interview. Did GSL’s weekend expedition to Chicago catch a Fox producer’s eye? We thought using Windy City money to send downstate kids to NRA shooting camp was plenty newsworthy, but Fox wanted to talk about “assault weapons.” Specifically, the city of Deerfield’s new law outlawing the sale and possession of scary black rifles.
That’s right, Deerfield residents have only a few more days to either turn in their guns or move them outside city limits. Guns Save Life, along with the NRA, is suing the city over the gun grab. Here’s John’s interview . . .
We hear Dana Loesch will be talking to John this evening on her NRA TV show this evening, too. Keep and eye out.
