The Hypocrisy of Anti-Gunners

The arrest of Illinois State Senator Donne Trotter on Wednesday December 5, 2012 must leave you with a lot of questions. Mainly, why a man who who has regularly been an anti-gun vote and even opposed legislation that would allow concealed carry in the state of Illinois, be carrying a firearm at all if they are so evil? It may even surprise you that Senator Trotter in fact has a permit to carry a weapon and has a valid Firearm Owner's Identification card.

TSA agents found the .25 caliber pistol in Trotter's carry on bag around 7 am. It was loaded and had 7 rounds in it, however there wasn't a round in the chamber. Senator Trotter told authorities that he moonlights as a security agent for a company called Allpoints Security and Detective Inc and did not know the firearm was in his carry on bag.

Further digging as you would expect have concluded that Senator Trotter's employment with Allpoinst is in fact a lie. He does not and has never worked for Allpoinst Security or any other security agency and his fake employment seems nothing more than a political favor from the company so that the Senator could legally obtain a permit to carry a firearm. A look at Senator Trotter's financials never once showed any income from Allpoints or any other security firm. In addition a responsible gun owner knows where his or her firearm is at all times. Something that Senator Trotter clearly failed at according to his claims.

How is it that a Senator with a long standing history of opposing citizens of his state from legally carrying a firearm conspire with a security firm to loop hole his way into obtaining a permit to carry? Simple hypocrisy. Another liberal who feels that they are above the rest of us. A man with an agenda to disarm the people of his state all while showing us that he thinks he is better and deserving of a firearm.

This is just one instance of liberal injustice towards firearms laws. Our government is full of senators and representatives just like Senator Trotter who feel they know what is best for the American people but the rules shall not apply to them. It's time we pay a little more attention to who we elect into office and start weeding out the hypocrisy of our government.
