It’s a pleasant thought. Start prosecuting the bigots that are infringing upon our inalienable rights. From the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms comes this news release:
BELLEVUE, Wash., May 23 /U.S. Newswire/ — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg should be investigated for obstruction of justice, and possibly prosecuted under the federal RICO statutes, for his headline-hunting “sting” operation of alleged law- breaking gun dealers, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today.
“According to the New York Daily News, ‘Quick-Draw’ Bloomberg’s decision to hire private investigators for this gun control stunt has apparently jeopardized several genuine criminal cases,’ said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “In his foolish zeal to drum up support for an anti-gun campaign, Bloomberg quite possibly has put real investigations at risk. This appears to be as clear cut a case of obstruction of justice as I’ve ever witnessed and Bloomberg should be investigated, and prosecuted if necessary.”
There is also the felony offense of 18 U.S.C. 242 “acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.” The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.
Of course the fantasy of Bloomberg spending the rest of his life in some Federal prison playing the role of “girlfriend” to some thug won’t play out anytime soon. He is above the law for now and knows it. But it doesn’t hurt to keep reminding the bigots that what they are doing is illegal. Perhaps someday, before the statute of limitations runs out, he and others will get what they legally have coming.
