Default Gun control activist swears he forgot he was carrying gun while visiting school

Quote:
A Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who is well known locally for pushing for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law has been arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.

The arrested gun-control advocate, Dwayne Ferguson, caused quite a scene at Harvey Austin Elementary School, reports local CBS affiliate WIVB.

At about 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, police acted on a pair of anonymous 911 tips. A battalion of cops quickly swarmed the school. The brigade included over a dozen squad cars, the SWAT team and K9 units. The Erie County Sheriff’s Air One helicopter and what appears to be an armored vehicle also turned up.

The school was immediately placed on lockdown. Parts of two streets were closed.

About 60 students who were still on campus participating in after-school activities were funneled to the cafeteria.

Cops searched the school room by room and would not let parents on campus until they were satisfied that no shooting threat existed.

You just can't make this crap up, and what really gets me is some ******* is telling everyone he forgot he had the gun. If you're that ****ing stupid that you forgot you were carrying you should not have a CCW license.

I dont see the interest in the gun issue. We have them /they're legal. end of story.
I see these articles as mere hype to sell a product.

It is not a gun issue. It is some moron who has the need to be an anal retentive gun control freak, but yet feels that gun control does not apply to him.

Does everything go this far over your head salty?

It's about hypocrisy.

IMO, Either he's being stupid (in actually forgetting he had the gun on him, which I find very disturbing) or he's being hypocritical to the degree that it's stupid.
Oh wait. Same Conclusion...

I kind of half see Salty's point. Sometimes I think that Obama is working with the gun lobby to push faux gun control to make the value of ammunition and firearms rise to increase profit.

Back to the OP; this guy is a dumbass. The rules just don't apply to him apparently.

That is one reason why every gun control politician running for office, or already in office, has got to be eliminated from the equation. That includes the POTUS. Okay. Now back to the idiot.

This is disturbing...

Quote:
The school received the call about 4:15 p.m. notifying staff that someone had entered the school with a gun. Brown and Brinkworth said it is not yet clear who placed the call. Around that time, 911 received two calls about the incident, prompting the school to go into lockdown and touching off a search of the building by police and SWAT team responders.

The initial search of the building turned up nothing
, Brinkworth said.

It was not until police were patting down students so they could evacuate the school that they found the gun on Ferguson, Brinkworth said.
Simply saying "Oh yeah...That's me" would've taken about 3 seconds after he heard someone has a gun on them in the school. You would THINK he would've checked to see...

A) If he was the person with the gun (since he carries it elsewhere)...

And more importantly...

B) If you were a regular gun carrier and heard someone in the school had a gun, wouldn't it be the FIRST thing you do to check yourself to see if you could defend against this "intruder"?...

I would EXPECT that upon hearing that someone was in my school with a gun, I would (even reflexively) place my hand on my holster (or the spot where the holster would be) as a defense mechanism if I wanted to see these kids get home safe...

But here's where it gets worse...

The amount of TIME before it was found that it was him...

Imagine how long it took for him to A) get the students he was with to the cafeteria, B) the police to search the school, and C) the police to start patting people down in the cafeteria...

That's GOTTA be twenty or thirty minutes....MINIMUM...Might even have been more than an hour...

...and not ONCE did this guy check himself????...

REALLY?????...

I think the hypocritical dumbass did check himself, thought, "Oh, crap!", and then went through the defenseless sheep inspection motion like the rest of the people, thinking he would be exempt because of his self-imagined greatness as a community activist.

Any fool who cannot control his weapon at all times is looking for a learning experience, hopefully with himself as a model.
