Clayton Cramer reports (as did an anonymous commenter) that Ft. Wayne, Indiana Journal-Gazette editor Tracey Warner wrote an editorial on why he has a concealed-carry permit. Here are the hypocritical parts:
On the other hand, the experience has provided insight into why people have weapons. The police are not 24-hour armed guards, and few of us can afford our own. Having a gun reduces one’s sense of vulnerability. Indiana’s constitution and state law expressly allow me to carry one for my protection. After having long rejected the idea, I have decided to at least have the option.
Over the years, The Journal Gazette’s editorial page has long called for strict control of guns and opposed state efforts to allow citizens to carry handguns in public. I agree with gun control. Having a gun permit, by definition, is gun control.
Yet the editorial, written by Tracey Warner, that spawned all of this was against OHIO IMPLEMENTING PERMITTED CONCEALED-CARRY.
But “having a permit, by definition, is gun control.”
As I said: “Guns for me, but not for thee.”
Something Mr. Warner shares with Diane Feinstein, and others enthusiastic about “gun control.”
