    Anti-Gun Rep. William Jefferson Possessing Firearms
    Posted by Noel Sheppard on June 9, 2007 - 15:11.
    Rep. William Jefferson (D-Louisiana) was ordered by a U.S. district judge to surrender his firearms Friday. Yet, media outlets that reported this ignored the delicious irony inherent in the Congressman’s anti-gun positions throughout his career.

    As reported by the Associated Press Friday (h/t Marc Sheppard, emphasis added): “As conditions for his release, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III denied the Congressman access to shotguns and rifles in his Louisiana home.”

    ABCNews.com also reported this interesting revelation (emphasis added):

    Jefferson will also have to surrender guns he has at his home in New Orleans. Jefferson said he had several rifles and shotguns.

    On the television side, CNN did at least three reports Friday about Jefferson that included his gun possession, starting with “CNN Newsroom” during the 10AM EST hour:

    TONY HARRIS, HOST: Right. And Brianna, Jefferson wants to keep his firearms?

    BRIANNA KEILAR, CORRESPONDENT: He didn't say he wants to keep them, but this is an interesting -- this was an interesting moment in court. He does have firearms. The judge asked him about this. He has rifles and guns that he says are for hunting. He says he's been hunting since he was 10 years old. What normally happens, if you come up on charges, you're not allowed to have possession of weapons, use weapons. So, he's going to have to figure out something. His attorney, and the prosecution, are going to have to figure out a way to take those guns out of his possession or lock them up in a way that he doesn't have access to them.

    HARRIS: Gotcha.

    As far as the broadcast networks, only the “CBS Evening News” felt this court proceeding was at all newsworthy, and its producers totally ignored the gun issue.

    Perhaps when the smoke clears...Jefferson won't ever be able to own firearms again?

    Stay armed...if you're not a felon...stay safe!

    If we can't have equal protection, the rule of law, and justice for ALL, then we have justice for no one.

    I was going to say "unbelievable," but I didn't want that figure of speech to be confused with the idea that I might find this development unable to be believed. I mean, after all, it's typical. Those preaching anti-gun politics never feel that they should be subject to the laws they want to impose on the rest of us.

    I read somewhere that Jefferson could theoretically get a sentence of over 200 years! Let's hope he gets THREE hundred. Corrupt scumbag.
