Had that been anyone else on this earth they would have crucified him but this one’s “anointed” so we can’t have the law being used against our special people now can we. I think Jay put it best:
Right, it wouldn’t have been an issue at all. Because the cops would have come to the house, taken him out at gunpoint, confiscated any weapons he had, and he would stand a very good chance of never seeing them again. Instead, he gets paid administrative leave and a pretty good chance of them dropping the charges.
Now, what about that Lautenberg Amendment? Granted, the Captain would have to be convicted, which at this point looks about as likely as an actual conservative ever getting elected to office again, but if he is convicted, he will have to give up his right to possess firearms forever. Going to be tough to be a cop that way, isn’t it?
I have no additional comments.
