Buckeye Firearms notes how an anti-gun demonstration in Ohio was organized by a convicted rapist, a fact conveniently left out by the media. It sort of foils a rapist's plans when his target is armed and able to defend herself. This past weekend, a small group of perhaps a dozen protesters gathered outside Dayton's Hara Arena to protest the sale of modern sporting rifles at Bill Goodman's Gun and Knife Show.
From the article: "We know that guns are being sold on the floor inside Hara Arena illegally" said Jerome McCorry. "No background checks no identification of any kind." McCorry said "AK-47s and M16s are not gonna be used for hunting, they're not going to be used to protect anybody. These are the weapons that are coming back and being used in mass murders and mass killings." [...] After reading the article, a Buckeye Firearms Association supporter decided to contact McCorry, the apparent protest organizer, to inform him about the inaccuracies in his statements about firearms (it isn't illegal for private individuals to sell a gun at the show without a background check, people aren't selling M16s or fully-automatic AK47s at Hara Arena, modern sporting rifles areused for hunting, gun shows are rarely used by criminals as a source for guns, rifles [of any type] are used in murders far less than fists or baseball bats, etc.). The supporter quickly found more than he bargained for. A simple Google search for Jerome McCorry reveals that the man trying to tell the public what weapons they should be allowed to own is a convicted felon.His conviction? Rape. A man who rapes women and is legally barred from having a gun is organizing anti-gun demonstrations. The Dayton Daily News has not noted this in their article and the local channel 7 hasn't made a note on their site, either.
