ISRA-PVF: Candidate Marty Moylan Double Crosses Gun Shop After $1,000 Campaign Donation Shake Down

CHICAGO, Sept. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the ISRA Political Victory Fund (ISRA-PVF):

When the owners of a Des Plaines, IL gun shop contributed $1,000 to Marty Moylan's election campaign fund, they probably assumed that Moylan would express his loyalty by watching out for their interests.  Little did the shop owners know that Moylan would double cross them by promising that, if elected to the 55th District House seat, he would pass legislation that would run them out of business.

In a campaign mail piece, Moylan pledged to pass legislation that would ban the sale of semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns – all of which are popular with law-abiding hunters, sportsmen and target shooters.  Interestingly enough, the firearms Moylan seeks to ban are the mainstay of the business owned by his generous benefactors.  To make matters worse, Moylan's proposed gun ban would drive hundreds of Illinois jobs and millions of tax dollars across the borders into neighboring states.

"Marty Moylan is running as the gun control candidate in the 55th District," commented ISRA-PVF spokesman, Richard Pearson.  "He doesn't care about how many businesses he will ruin or how many jobs he will cost Illinois citizens.  All Moylan cares about is pleasing Rahm Emanuel and his pals in the gun control movement.  As the gun shop owners now know, Moylan cannot be trusted to represent those who support him.  Moylan's main interest is to cede political control of the 55th District to Emanuel's Chicago Machine."
