Why are so many anti-gun mayors criminals?
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | September 21, 2010 | David Codrea

Posted on 09/21/2010 7:40:56 AM PDT by Neil E. Wright

"A federal judge...postponed ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s status conference on 19 fraud and tax evasion charges, Freep.com informs us.

Why?

[D]efense lawyers argued they needed more time to comb through a mountain of evidence that the government has compiled.
A whole mountain?

Kilpatrick, of course, has already been convicted and sentenced on other criminal charges, including obstruction of justice and probation violation.

In addition to being a former mayor, he was also a member of anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's deceptively-named "Mayors Against Illegal Guns."

“They want to make sure THEY have one and YOU don’t.”

Because they are afraid they are the ones who will get shot...and for good reasons.

Eliminating guns eliminates competition for crooked mayors.

WHY? Because in the mind of a leftist, “criminality” is a VERY relative term! Given their near complete moral superiority, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a leftist to actually commit a criminal act. Only in the small, Limbaugh-influenced minds of the little people can our betters be viewed as imperfect. In short, all they DO is for the greater good and if they should somehow BENEFIT along the way, why, who could POSSIBLY be more deserving! A CRIME?? Why HELL no!! Merely a small, individual blessing for their infinite goodness and compassion.

I would suppose that if you are running a criminal enterprise you don’t want any other group to be able to oppose you.

No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the
people to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be
refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants.

Aren't there RICO laws against organized crime, I mean the democratic party?

Oh that's right, the Democratic Party & ruling elite are above the law.

Sorry.

Well, among people who aren't the mayor, does an honest man or a criminal stand more chance of getting shot? Why would making the subject of the question the mayor make a difference?

Anyone who is willing to violate the Constitution is very likely to be willing to violate lesser laws as well.

Not to disagree, but he's got six and the USCF has about 1200 members.

That being said, it's pretty obvious: Democrats are nearly universally opposed to an armed citizenry, and Democrats are far more predisposed to criminal behavior.

Firearms freedom will always be inversely proportional to the crime rate.

Because criminals always seek out an immoral and unethical edge over their victims. Next silly question.
