The last place one might expect to hear pushback against the National Rifle Association would be at a gun show here, a western suburb of Chicago that reliably votes Republican every election cycle and is the proud home of the Billy Graham Center Museum.
But at the DuPage County Fairgrounds on Sunday, a man selling ammunition, DVDs, military books and a few handguns leaned across his table and said that, as a lifelong NRA member, he isn’t on board with everything the organization stands for.
“I disagree with some of their viewpoints,” said Mitchell Flesner, 67. After the mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month that left 17 people dead, Flesner said he would like the NRA to support some kind of regulation that forces teenagers — like 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who authorities charged with the killings — to get parental permission before they are allowed to buy AR-15 military-style rifles.
