Anti-Gun Leadership

In cleaning out my inbox, I stumbled upon this article Miss AO sent me a few weeks back. It seems that a Los Angeles gun control organization, which was city supported to the tune of $1.5 million to help in anti-gang efforts, was being used as a front to run guns illegally to the founder's old gang. Say it ain't so!

There is something you need to realize about this case: most gun control organizations, even the big ones, are run by hypocrits. This is a widely known in the pro-gun community, but is often unknown outside it.

How so you say? Many leading anti-gunners own guns. Many of them take advantage in "loopholes" they rail against in public. Sarah Brady gave her son a rifle in 2000 using a private transfer, a technique she had fought to outlaw. Diane Feinstein, one of the most vocal anti-gun Senators, has a concealed carry permit and keeps a snubnose .38 in her purse. She's one of a handful of San Francisco residents with that privilege. Many of the others, like the Kennedy's, hire armed bodyguards. Rosie O'Donnell, a vocal anti-gun celebrity, employs a bodyguard with a concealed carry permit, but doesn't have one herself.

Are the rank and file this bad? Generally not. Most anti-gunners I know oppose gun ownership because they don't trust themselves with them. They think they might lose control and kill someone at the drop of a hat. Why they think that admitting to be psychopaths is ok and a good thing I'll never know.
