Ministry of Irony: Gun Control Advocate Lobbied to Make Himself a Felon
A Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who is well known locally for pushing for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law has been arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.Throw the book at him, seize his weapons! Not matter if it is silly, he argued for silly!
The arrested gun-control advocate, Dwayne Ferguson, caused quite a scene at Harvey Austin Elementary School, reports local CBS affiliate WIVB.
At about 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, police acted on a pair of anonymous 911 tips. A battalion of cops quickly swarmed the school. The brigade included over a dozen squad cars, the SWAT team and K9 units. The Erie County Sheriff’s Air One helicopter and what appears to be an armored vehicle also turned up.
... He said he frequently carries a pistol. He has a license but the license does not matter under the strict state law Ferguson helped pass.
Among much else, the 2013 law, deemed New York’s SAFE Act, made it a felony to carry a gun on school property, according to The Buffalo News.
While it was always illegal to carry a gun on school grounds, the new law bumped the crime from a misdemeanor to a felony in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Do you really think leftist gun control advocates would cut you some slack in a similar situation? Hell no they wouldn't.
He made his bed, not he should lose his rights and do the four years in the clink. Just like he advocated for. Additional irony is now that Dwayne is in trouble his fellow gun control fiends think zero tolerance gun free zones are a good place for Dwayne to be packing because he could have protected the students.
Some of Ferguson’s supporters echoed similar criticism, saying that carrying a weapon meant Ferguson could have helped police in the event there was a gunman actually threatening students.Hypocrites! Guns for me but not for thee.
“Dwayne probably was in a position to help the police not knowing that he was the one they were looking for,” said George Johnson, president of Buffalo United Front,
