Let Them Eat Cake

The obnoxious Michael Moore hires bodyguards that break existing laws by carrying handguns to protect him, while telling everybody else their best protection is to criminalize carrying weapons.

NEW YORK — Filmmaker Michael Moore's (search) bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York's JFK airport Wednesday night.

Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.

Moore's 2003 Oscar-winning film "Bowling for Columbine" criticizes what Moore calls America's "culture of fear" and its obsession with guns
Of course, concealed carry permits are for the liberal ruling class, not the rank-and-file people like you and me. Just a reminder that liberals believe laws don't apply to them.

Only yesterday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors proposed a law to ban all handguns from the city.

The proposal will appear on the municipal ballot in November and would bar residents from keeping handguns in their homes or businesses. It also would prohibit the sale, manufacture and distribution of any firearms or ammunition in San Francisco, where residents have bought nearly 22,000 handguns since 1996, according to the state attorney general's office.
I wonder what former S.F. mayor Dianne Feinstein, who carries a licsensed handgun for personal protection, will say about this?

UPDATE - Moorewatch reports that the Fox News article linked above contains several inaccuracies. While Moore does have armed bodyguards, the person in question does not work for the pudgy filmmaker.

A quick check on GOOGLE confirms that Senator Diane Feinstein does indeed have a concealed weapons permit.
