Kinda’ sucks that we’re tempted to apply the same level of asinine, persecutory oppression the Left uses in violation of the Constitution.
Not sure of I want the chimp-faced, douche bag to suffer the unconstitutional crap he’s advancing.
Well, here's a warning from history.
Caesar and his political associates (Crassus, Pompey, Caelius, Mark Antony) used armed gangs of professional killers -- mustered-out veterans, ex-gladiators, professional hit men -- to take away the streets and the nights from noble Romans they attacked politically.
When Cicero condemned Catiline and his co-conspirators and went down to the Mamertine Prison to see about executing them (public stranglers were used), it was nighttime, so he had to take a mob of senators and their torch-bearning retainers, many of them armed, to protect him -- otherwise Caesar's thugs would have murdered him (Catiline was working for Caesar and Crassus). Eventually, about 20 years later, Mark Antony's thugs did murder Cicero, on Antony's orders.
That's how Rome lost her freedom: Antony and Octavian literally murdered the Republic, by killing most if not all of the people who knew how to make it function: Magistrates, former magistrates, judges, senators. And they used armed thug-bands to do it.
Now remember what Bill Ayers said, and don't forget or discount it.
“Kinda sucks that were tempted to apply the same level of asinine, persecutory oppression the Left uses in violation of the Constitution.”
No. It doesn’t suck. It sucks when law-abiding citizens gets ensnared in asinine, persecutory oppressive laws passed by the left, but Gregory *knew* he was breaking the law. (He talked to the DC police and was told he was in violation of D.C. law.) Further, Gregory used the illegal clip as a prop to make possession of that item illegal *everywhere,* not just in D.C.
As Alinski’s Laws state, make them live up to their standards, and by Gregory’s standards, someone with a 30-round magazine in his possession needs to go to jail. So sending Gregory’s sorry butt to jail for possessing it does not suck. It is karmic justice.
