So Kathleen Willis was interviewed by The Center Square about her racist gun control bill to price gun ownership out of the reach of inner-city people of color. Just like the racists a hundred years ago did with Black Codes and Jim Crow gun control bills of that era.
She said “we worked very hard together with gun advocates.” Some people are asking who those advocates might be. Is it the Illinois State Rifle Association? Illinois Carry? Surely not the NRA, right? Someone else, perhaps?
I’ll tell you who she worked with. Jay Keller. Who, after the fiasco with the Illinois Firearms Manufacturers Association (remember Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms and the sellout of 2016?), has been picked up by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. I don’t have time right now to chase links down. You can use your own Google-fu.
I’ve cautioned the NSSF that exactly this would happen weeks ago. We had a couple of heated phone calls in fact as I pleaded the case for getting Keller out of the room when Willis’ “Gun Violence Coalition” team met, just as NRA, ISRA and Illinois Carry all got out and stayed out. Of course, the crazy cat woman never extended an invite to GSL. Go figure, right? I’m crushed.
Sure enough, Kathleen Willis in using the fact the Jay was/is in the room, literally and proverbially, to claim that she has the input, support and cooperation of “gun advocates” for her slimy, racist proposed legislation. It’s all to fool the people who don’t know any better… you know, those Illinois legislators who are agnostic on guns.
Doubt me about Jay being a party to the meeting(s)? Contact NSSF. Ask for Jake.
While Jake says Jay was there just to work on some “Fix NICS” initiative they have, Kathleen Willis could give a damn about fixing anything. All she wants is to pass more and more gun control. It never ends for this sad woman.
Dear NSSF: Will you finally end Jay’s participation in these gun control meetings?
