05/02/2003 Archived Entry: "NRA has Free State Project member arrested"
WHEN I FIRST HEARD THAT THE NRA HAD ONE OF ITS OWN CONVENTION ATTENDEES ARRESTED for passing out pro-gun literature in the public area outside the convention hall, I figured there had to be more to the story. Like maybe the guy was nude, lewd, loud, obnoxious, trespassing, or keeping delegates from passing. But the more that comes out, the more it looks like the NRA doesn't believe in free speech, any more than it really believes in gun rights. Tim Condon, Esq., an attorney from Tampa, Florida, and member services director for the Free State Project, really was arrested for peacefully handing out pro-gun Free State literature in a public place. He and the FSP are considering legal action against the NRA. Go get 'em, guys!
