Liberal arrogance?

You betcha!

David Gregory may have violated D.C.’s gun law -- and, in my opinion, differing with Dr. Jacobson, he probably thought he was above the law when he did it. Liberal arrogance is nothing new...

I doubt David Gregory intended to violate D.C.’s ban on the possession or transfer of high capacity ammunition magazines when he waved around such a magazine during his interview of Wayne LaPierre yesterday.

Prior to yesterday, I never would have thought that possession of an empty magazine, kept separate from ammunition or a weapon, would violate the law, so I sympathize with Gregory on that point.

But I’m less sympathetic than you might expect because fear of unintentionally violating gun laws is one of the things that has kept me from purchasing a handgun. As you know, I took the NRA safety course over a year ago. But I’m a legal resident of Rhode Island who lives much of the year in New York, so there’s an issue of whether I could obtain a NY permit, which is needed even to keep a gun in the home. And then there’s the issue of transportation back and forth, and complying with the requirements to avoid prosecution as I pass through Massachusetts.

It all became such a bureaucratic jungle that I just deferred for the time being.

That’s where we are with many gun laws, the law-abiding responsible citizens who worry about compliance are scared away or risk prosecution for unknowing violations, while the lunatics and criminals don’t care. [...]

Again. Wash, rinse, repeat: Criminals DON'T CARE about gun laws. Just ask the murdered citizens of that liberal/"progressive" bastion, Chicago, a city in a state with some of the most draconian gun laws in the nation...
