Convicted Rapist is Leader of Ohio Anti Gun Movement
According to Buckeyefirearms.org, one of the organizers of an anti gun protest at a gun show in Ohio is, in fact, a convicted rapist.
In an interview with Dayton Daily News Jerome McCorry made the following statements. “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.”
First off we just want to point out that private sales are still legal in most states, none of the weapons in question are fully automatic, no rifle used in a mass shooting has ever been linked to a gun show, the AR-15 is currently the most popular hunting platform in the USA and murders with rifles account for less than 400 deaths a year. OK, now that that’s out of the way.
According to Buckeyefirearms.com, the same Jerome McCorry who has given multiple interviews in the media over the years advocating for stricter gun control is in fact the same Jerome McCorry who is listed in the sex offender registry as a convicted rapist.
The Dayton Daily News made no mention of McCorry’s criminal past.
