Marine Arrested in DC; Connected Scum Still Walking Free

Wanna see some double standards? How about this?

A Marine detailed to the office of California GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. was arrested Tuesday for possession of an unregistered firearm after a loaded .45 caliber handgun was discovered in his vehicle.

Gunnery Sgt. Peter Boby, a congressional fellow in the Corps’ Office of Legislative Affairs, was arrested after being stopped at a security checkpoint near a House office building, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.

Boby was also charged with carrying a pistol without a license and possession of unregistered ammunition. He processed at Capitol Police headquarters.

My educated guess is he made a mistake. He probably simply forgot the firearm was in his vehicle.

Stupid mistake? Yes.

But should his career be ruined, and his future destroyed because of what likely was an unintentional, albeit dumb, error? I’d say no.

And yet, Boby was arrested and charged for what was obviously an inadvertent error, while politically connected media maggot David Gregory faced no consequences whatsoever after quite intentionally bringing a “high capacity” magazine into the District, because apparently that wasn’t in the public interest. I’m sure it had nothing to do with Gregory and his wife’s close relationship with the DC Attorney General.

Frankly, I trust the Marine – a combat veteran and an NCO – with a firearm much more than I trust leeches such as David Gregory with a magazine, let alone with a camera and a microphone, given the amount of damage his biased agenda can cause.

  1. This is a good example of how all firearm owners really need to be politically active at least when it comes to firearms. The first obvious reason is to help fight back against the idiotic gun control laws around the nation. Second by being politically active you are much more likely to a good general idea of which areas to avoid bring firearms (at least until you do a bunch of research, which you would at least than have a pretty good idea that you would need to do). I am not from NY but I know to stay the hell away from NYC with firearms at minimum and I’d be cautious about the rest of NY as well. Same thing with CA.

  2. Yeah, a bunch of years ago a friend of mine got busted on the same stupid charges. He was a vet and had a “cardiac event” while being home alone. He grabbed his belly bag and made it, barely, to the VA seeking help. When they checked his bag for his ID – at his request – they found his .45 (He had a CCW) and he was brought up on felony charges.

  3. Yeah. It’s what they call Bright-Line Law. It precludes thought, reasoning, or subjectivity in favor of resolving a legal issue in a straightforward, predictable manner, though, arguably, not always equitable results.
