So let’s imagine that you were running for the exalted office of local police commissioner. Do you think that a brush with the law back in 1966 would bar you?
Oh dear. What horrible crime did he commit all those years ago. Was he a killer? A kidnapper? A child molester? Did he talk in the theater?
An offensive weapon? Was he carrying a bazooka?
Oh, my! He was a veritable criminal mastermind! A child, with an air gun, near a railway embankment.
Welcome to the world that the anti-gunners want us to live in. They are so paranoid about guns that they would have a man thrown off the ballot for police commissioner because they hate the idea that a couple of kids might get an air rifle and shoot at tin cans near a railway line.
