It’s not for the crimes he committed against gun owners but 14 years in prison will keep him off the streets long enough and probably out political office forever such that Rod Blagojevich will never trouble us again. Read about his sentence and crimes here, here, and here.
I first heard about Blagojevich from a friend who was a gun-rights activist in Chicago. Some of the stories were astounding. The corruption and abuse of power that comes out of that political cesspool makes it very clear why they don’t want citizens to own firearms. People that willing to causally abuse the power of government for personal gain know the subjects of their abuse will entertain thoughts of ending their reigns of terror via lead poisoning.
Good-bye and good riddance to Rod Blagojevich. He is just one more anti-gun politician in prison where they belong. There are many more on my list.
