Not Even LIBERALS Take Gun Control Seriously

Here’s a serious question for you: If you caught someone stealing firearms, and they were clearly guilty, in fact, they sold those guns illegally, too. What do you think that the legal system should do to them?

Maybe it’s a better question to ask what you think that the legal system will do to a person who is busted doing this. Will they be put into jail for years without chance of bail like some kind of drug dealer, mass murderer, or January 6th protestor?

Or will something else will happen?

Well, this isn’t just a hypothetical set of questions. This situation really happened in a state that has a reputation for having strict gun control. Cortney Weil lets us know the details:

A federal judge in Massachusetts seemed to go easy on a former FedEx driver who admitted to stealing guns from his truck and then selling them. The judge sentenced the driver to time served: a whole six days.

Six days from a judge in liberal Massachusetts. That’s not a typo. Weil continues:

O’Toole eventually pled guilty to two counts of possession or sale of a stolen firearm, a crime that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, and the Department of Justice recommended a 10-month sentence.

However, U.S. District Court Judge Angel Kelley opted not to heed that recommendation. Instead, Judge Kelley sentenced O’Toole to time served, which amounted to six days, as well as three years of supervised release. While under supervised release, O’Toole must also complete 250 hours of community service.

If it had been you or me, legal gun owners who haven’t broken any laws, it seems pretty likely that a judge in Massachusetts would crucify us. We would have been sent to jail for ten years and bankrupted by that $250,000 fine.

But not even liberals really care about gun control except as a way to disarm and, if possible, incarcerate legal gun owners over a difference in political opinion.

The hypocrisy is appalling.
