Let’s see, what is that word I’m looking for? Oh yeah, hypocrite! An anti-gun attorney in Cleveland, David Malik, has been arrested for, guess what, carrying a gun and ammo through airport security.

According to

“I participated in a target shooting class recently with a certified CCW instructor and I simply forgot to remove it from my bag,” Malik said in a statement. “I used the bag to pack for my trip. It was a stupid mistake.”

Malik spent Saturday night in jail and was released on bond Sunday morning, according to Steve Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association…

“What’s interesting about David is he is such an anti-gun person,” Loomis said. “He’s such an anti-violence person, and of all the things for him to get arrested for, that really surprises me.”

Malik is a prominent civil rights attorney and most recently made headlines for representing the family of Tamir Rice, the 12 year old boy who was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer back in November. Rice was holding a toy gun when officers responded to reports of someone with a gun.

Apparently just another “do as a I say, not as I do” anti-gunner.
