I shared my opinion a while ago that Meet the Press’ David Gregory should be arrested and convicted of violating D.C. gun laws, and then we should all support his appeal. This opinion was based on 1. the necessity of maintaining the rule of law and 2. the fact that D.C. gun laws are blatantly unconstitutional. Well, since then, David Gregory was not charged with breaking a law that he undeniably broke (because “[p]rosecution would not promote public safety in the District of Columbia, nor serve the best interests of the people,” which pretty much admits that the law itself does not promote public safety or serve the best interests of the people), much to my frustration.
Now, a new member of our elite liberal ruling class has blatantly violated the same D.C. gun laws, and will also apparently not be charged. Why? Apparently Senator Feinstein’s office got permission to display and brandish the weapons. Seriously. You can apparently get permission to violate laws. This isn’t one of those “you can’t hold a parade without a permit”-style laws; as far as I could find, there is no permitting process in the unconstitutional D.C. gun laws. You cannot apply to violate them, so any violation is necessarily illegal and prosecutable. But wait! If you’re a liberal Congresswoman, you apparently have access to a super special awesome permit that allows you to violate laws at will, as long as you
cajole threaten ask nicely first.
Is this super special awesome permit available to the public at large? Well, Gregory reportedly tried to get permission, and was denied–and if the media elite cannot get the permit, I think it’s a safe assumption that members of the public cannot, either. Therefore, we have a law with no written permitting clause, which apparently has a secret permitting clause available only to (liberal?) members of Congress.
This is not the rule of law, folks. We have a huge problem when any law has secret, unwritten sections that apply only to certain people at the discretion of the authorities. The law must apply equally to everyone, period, end of story. But then again, I’m just lawful good, so what do I know? I’m not totally heroic chaotic
evil neutral good like our Democrat betters.
