Associates defend man who had gun in school ....
#1
... Say he made honest mistake in incident prompting school lockdown.


Quote:Dwayne Ferguson spent more than a decade advocating for nonviolence and peace in the streets of Buffalo.

He was a well-known face in the movement for the SAFE Act, the state law that made carrying a gun on school property a felony. He was also a familiar presence in the hallways of the city’s Harvey Austin Elementary School, where he worked in the after-school program and mentored students.

No one imagined that on Thursday he would show up at the school in possession of a gun, touching off an hours-long lockdown, search and ultimately his arrest on two felony charges.

Ferguson, 52, told WGRZ-TV that he frequently carries the gun, for which he has a permit, and did not realize he had it on him when he went to the school as part of the mentoring program.

He was instrumental in implementing the rule, so therefore should be punished more severely since he knows it so well.

Karma is a a bitch ...

You'd think that this just might prompt some reflection/conversation on the part of the "anti" side about:

OMG a "good" person carries a gun and and is getting slammed with no evil intent.

OMG passing a law doesn't do shit in reality.

OMG LEOs saw the guy and didn't even notice he had a gun. (Also the "gunman" gathered 50 student into an isolated area under his control.)

I could go on, but I don't see the point - I'm guessing it will never be considered.

On one hand I think it's complete bullshit that a legal carrier is going to be charged with a felony for something that completely lacks malice. On the other hand I can't help but feel some of this...

Frankly, I hope he beats the rap. His representation will have to use all of the arguments that this guy has been fighting against to get him off. Simply delicious.Tongue

I get what you're saying, but this is not misfortune--this is someone who wants everyone else to follow the rules they created and then expect themselves to be excused from them.

The only way a social fascist can ever fully comprehend the horror of what they've wrought is to suffer under it.

Quote:Frankly, I hope he beats the rap. His representation will have to use all of the arguments that this guy has been fighting against to get him off. Simply delicious.Tongue

Why? You realize that he'll simply turn it around to show that HE is the exception to the rule, and that everyone else is the reason why the rule was created.

New York State...the place where it is EXTREMELY difficult to carry a gun legally, he gets to do it while making rules against it for everyone else, and then carries it into the place he wants people to suffer the most for doing so.

The irony of him using arguments from the pro side to defeat his own law will be utterly lost, and if anything will motivate him to tighten it down so that someone else couldn't do the same.

I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt so I often miss the elitism inherent in the anti point of view. Who can say for sure what motivates them? However, when I look at your point of view beside mine I have to agree that you're probably closer to the mark.

It's hard to be an optimist these days.

I used to be a little bit of a left wing elitist (a closet conservative if you will), and was married to a full-blown one for 3 years (together for 7) when I lived in Boston so I recognize it a bit more--I was entrenched in it at home and work--and holy cow were the left-wing elites everywhere Wink
