State Sen. Trotters Gun Not Registered, Prosecutors Say(IL)
Ill take Dems seriously on gun control when they have to hang for the same crimes we do.
He should lose his job ,have a criminal record and be barred from public service
Meaningful action to me means a buttery smooth, bolt action .338 Lapua.
Yes, fine caliber.
Or a smooth old model 71 Winchester .348
Sure complements my old model 94 Winchester.
Not shabby for an old beast.
It was about 20 years ago now, so that a lot of younger FReepers won't recall it, but black liberal journalist and columnist and talking-head show regular Carl Rowan was involved in a shooting in his back yard. He shot a would-be burglar or prowler in the ass with a borrowed pistol.
The triple-bind was, a) Rowan was a big grabber and noisy about gun control, b) his house was in D.C., where you basically can't own a pistol, or if you do you can barely clean it without breaking their laws, pre-Heller vs. DC, and c) the gun wasn't even his, but was licensed to a relative who shouldn't have lent it to Rowan.
Guess we were supposed to understand the distinction that applies to journalists and Real Big People.
