NRA official criticized over Nazi argument in NJ



JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — The Anti-Defamation League says a National Rifle Association board member from New Jersey was out of line to suggest similarities between gun control efforts and Nazism.

Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs executive director Scott Bach made the remarks last week on an NRA News program. The remarks came during a discussion of a Jersey City policy to ask gun makers about their safety records as part of their bids to sell firearms and ammunition to the police department.

Bach said Democratic Mayor Steve Fulop should know better than to institute the policy because his grandparents were Holocaust survivors.

The Anti-Defamation League has been campaigning against tying the Holocaust and Nazis to politics, particularly in gun control.

Bach hasn’t returned a phone message left Monday.
