Senator: Gun group's holocaust comparison 'poor analogy'

An Illinois state senator wants a gun advocacy group to apologize for comparing the treatment of gun owners to Holocaust victims.

The group Guns Save Life uses a star of David with an article that draws a parallel between the treatment of Jews during the Holocaust and that of Illinois gun owners battling to keep their names private.

Chicago democrat Ira Silverstein represents many Holocaust survivors and he says the group is using "a very poor analogy" in making its argument.
