Schadenfreude and Honesty

As it's been mentioned around the blog-o-sphere, New York forgot to exempt their own police officers from their most recent gun banning extravaganza.  I'm sure they'll pencil in that exemption before the ban comes into effect, but it is amusing to watch them gawp about while trying to save face.  Something funny has to come of something so farcical.

One telling quote that I found via Weer'd in an abc article about the snafu is this:
State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he's going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, "You can't give more ammo to the criminals"

Wait... it's like he's saying that he knows criminals aren't going to follow the ban.  So, tell me Senator Eric Adams, if you already knew that criminals were going to ignore the new restrictions, what was the point?  Sounds like an arbitrary way to make criminals out of honest men.

A more interesting question is will they exempt the armed pilots??? Otherwise any armed pilot that lands an airliner in NY will be subject to arrest!!!

Interesting, hadn't thought of that.

Uh. looks like it's time to clean the Spam Filter.

So does that mean that Cuomo just put over a 100,000 ARMED CRIMINALS on the Street?
