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.

He got three years of probation and 100 hours of community service. I wonder if a pro-gun advocate would get a similar sentence in New York?

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think people should be punished for taking steps to protect themselves. I just find it interesting that someone who spends his life pushing for tougher gun laws used the current gun laws to get off with a slap on the wrist.

I’m sure the Bloomberg anti-gun camp will express their outrage shortly.

ORIGINAL STORY:

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.

Such is the case with Dwayne Ferguson, a leader in the anti-violence organization Mad Dads. Ferguson was arrested last week on two felony charges stemming from the fact that he was carrying a loaded firearm at an elementary school.

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.
