But surely, if he is in a situation where seconds count, he can just say he is for non-violence and the bad guy will just stop and wait for the cops to show up? Right. That how it is supposed to work for every one else.
The charges will be dropped.
You break the law you get punished.
That’s how it’s supposed to work.
But this is Obamaland so I’m guessing this guy will get off scot free
Lock him up for the full four years.
So an anonymous tip about a man with a gun and the police are called in. Then people are patted down by police, and that’s when they find it on him.
Last I heard, it’s a big no no to carry a gun on a public school campus. But a police pat down based on an anonymous tip? Will this search be deemed Constitutional?
He just considers himself to be part of the elite. Democrats are not necessarily against guns. They are just against people other than *themselves*, or others of like mind, having guns.
Laws don’t apply to the Democrats who vote for them. They only apply to those who oppose them.
In a development Im sure will shock you, trusting SGN reader, Chicago State Sen. Donne Trotter worked out a plea bargain with local prosecutors that saw felony gun charges reduced to a misdemeanor.
Dems seem to forget they’re carrying guns quite a bit.
Who believes this BS?
Answer: Nobody. String 'im up, just like he wanted.

Ya, Really. Im packing, but yet I don’t remember Im packing. I forgot I had an open beer while driving officer. Really, It would be like a cop going home, Taking off belt and gun changing clothes, putting on the hide gun they all carry, thinking nothing of it, an going out, only to get caught with it later. Two sides here. I feel if one is going to carry. You best damn sure remember that you are. Let him live with the laws he helped enact on the rest of us. Otherwise. PURELY IRRESONSIBLE OWNERSHIP.

he wanted this law, so i think he deserves to get the maximum punishment he supported.
throw the book at him and make him an example for others to consider before they advocate giving away their rights.

So what’s the point of having a gun on you if you don’t ever remember you have it on you?

If you forgot you were carrying a gun, you shouldn’t have one.

I predict this guy has a future as a US Congressman. He already has the “I want to pass a law, but I should be exempt from it”, down pretty good.
Lock him up and throw away the key.
Lock up the POS for life.
Evidently someone saw the gun on him but he himself didn’t know he had it on him.
Color me skeptical. He damn well knew he had the gun on him. Being a Democrat he just figured the law didn’t apply to him.
To be hoisted on one’s own petard comes to mind.
He who lives by the [un]SAFE Act, should be willing to die by the [un]SAFE Act.
That doesn't make any sense. If HE did not know he was wearing a gun, how could anyone else know?
It reminds me of an old Steve Martin joke regarding excuses for breaking the law:
“You simply say, I forgot -— I forgot armed robbery was a crime, officer.”
When those around you have a better idea of where your gun is than you do, it might be good for you to stop carrying it.
