No heat at NRA press stunt.
Daniel Ruth reports:
Reporters entering the make-believe news conference were subjected to searches; even water bottles were confiscated, which might suggest some very fine vodka could have been discarded. It was the National Press Club, after all.
Still, it does seem a bit odd that the National Rifle Association, the purveyors of Big Fear, which wants everybody to be able to carry a gun anywhere they want, would suddenly go all weak in the knees over the remote possibility that someone attending Hutchinson’s Potemkin Village news conference might be packing heat.
The only threat the assembled scribblers posed to Asa Hutchinson was misspelling his first name with an extra “s”.
