The head of the Illinois State Rifle Association says Illinois law worked the way it was supposed to in the case of a former Morton resident who is now accused of fatally shooting four people in a Tennessee Waffle House restaurant.
Richard Pearson says law enforcement did what they were supposed to in confiscating Travis Reinking’s guns.
Police then turned those weapons over to Reinking’s father and Pearson says he, not the law, is to blame for reportedly giving the guns back to his son.
It’s unclear if Reinking’s father broke any Illinois laws by doing so.
