NY Anti-Gun Activist Illegally Carries Gun on School Property, Gets Slap on the Wrist Community Service
Dwayne Ferguson, an anti-gun activist in Buffalo, New York “accidentally” carried his gun into a school last year. He was arrested and was just sentenced today.

I’m sure the Bloomberg anti-gun camp will express their outrage shortly.
Do as I say, not as I do seems to be a popular mentality with people who push to disarm law abiding citizens in certain venues.

Police initiated a several hour lockdown of the school following an anonymous report about a man carrying a gun on school property.
Ferguson does work as a security guard and has a permit to carry a gun. However, Ferguson is not permitted to carry a firearm on school property.
Ironically, Ferguson was part of a recent push to make carrying a firearm, even if you possess a carry permit, on to school grounds a felony (that charge was previously a misdemeanor.
