Laws for thee but not for me

A gun control activist who helped pass the draconian SAFE Act in New York has received a sentence of community service and probation that will allow him, if he is not charged with anything else, to escape the serious felony charges that he himself advocated for -- charges he should have received when he accidentally carried a gun into a school, setting off a raid by the local SWAT team, k9 unit, and the kitchen sink at the police station.

It would be poetic justice if he had actually gotten the sentence he would have liked to impose on anyone else. But apparently he is politically connected and can wiggle out of serious consequences.
