Handgun hypocrisy: Well-armed activists want the rest of America defenseless
The loudest advocates of gun control are well protected. President Obama said he wants more laws restricting firearms ownership because, in his hometown of Chicago, "there's an awful lot of violence, and they're not using AK 47s, they're using cheap handguns." With his own armed Secret Service detail, the president doesn't need to worry about crime.Illinois State Sen. Donne Trotter takes the hypocrisy up a notch. On Wednesday, Mr. Trotter was arrested on felony charges after attempting to board a plane at O'Hare International Airport with a loaded .25 caliber Beretta.
