Received today from the ISRA:
WE’RE SO SORRY FOR THE MISTAKE – In an earlier alert, we reported that officers with the Capitol Police had harassed members of the ISRA Lobby Team. Yesterday, the Chief of the Capitol Police detachment approached a member of ISRA leadership to clear the air. The Chief reported that the ISRA lobbyists were mistaken if they thought the officers were sent to harass them. According to the Chief, the police detail was charged with the duty of protecting two inert dummy rounds that were being used to support committee testimony on the Fifty Caliber Ban, one in .50 BMG and one in .30-06. UM…OK…as gun owners we can all appreciate the daunting task these officers faced in providing protection to a couple of duds – and we’re not talking about the Senate sponsors of the ban. Now that we have been assured that although the Officers were standing close enough to our lobbyists that they could feel their breath, they were in no way attempting to intimidate them. Chief, we'll give you the benefit of the doubt and ask our readers to please refrain from any further calls to the Secretary of State's office on this matter at this time.
Keep those calls going to the State Senators.
