This was all over the news the other day and happened in my home town of Buffalo, NY.

The man in this article was a big supporter of the "SAFE" act (legislation passed illegally by our extreme liberal governor Andrew Cuomo and has turned responsible upstanding citizens into criminals). Now he has been charged with 2 counts of criminal possession of a weapon on school property. Someone reported they saw a man with a gun so the school was locked down, the SWAT team was brought in and an extensive search was conducted. Meanwhile the community was in utter panic mode and parents feared for their children's life.
This man claims it was just a mistake and he forgot he had the gun. All his gun grabbing associates say they shouldn't charge him because... well hey! he supports gun control.
:wall: REALLY?!?.... He should get a pass because he's an outspoken gun control proponent?? and he supported the un-SAFE act? No no no! That's not how the law works. You wanted the law implemented so EVERYONE has to abide by it. You cannot just pick and choose who the law should apply to. Can u imagine if someone on the other side of the political spectrum "forgot" he had a gun on school property? They would be getting crucified right now and it would be all over the front page of CNN. These people pushed the law, now it IS law, so its time for this man to start serving jail time.
Obviously, I don't really feel that way... this guy has a right to carry a gun wherever he wants. But it does show that the "SAFE" act is seriously flawed, was not well thought through and this stupid law needs to be repealed immediately so we can save another upstanding citizen from going to jail.
