In an incident seen by some as a bit of supreme irony, a local “gun control” proponent has been arrested on two felony charges for bringing a concealed handgun into a New York elementary school, causing “an hours long lockdown,” The Buffalo News reported Friday.
“Dwayne Ferguson ... was a well-known face in the movement for the SAFE Act, the state law that made carrying a gun on school property a felony,” the report explains. “He was among local activists who stood with Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes last year lobbying for a law that would make possessing a gun on school property a felony.
But it's not a big deal when one of the bigots does it! They say so:
What’s telling is the reaction of Ferguson’s apologists, offering
excuses and justifications. “Associates defend man who had gun in
school,” the article headline states, adding the subhead “Say he made
honest mistake in incident prompting school lockdown.”
Plain old parent made that mistake, they'd want to hang them; but it's one of THEIR bigots, so it's different!
