These guys both broke the law. During the act of calling for new laws.
Do you think that they intend to follow the new laws, or are they "special cases' with the same ability to step around the the law as felons have. These guys must think that they are on some,"mission from God", or are social-paths with no conscience that what they do is wrong.
If anything comes of this, they will probably have to pay a fine,(bank-rolled by the network, and it will be over. The fine will be nothing compared to the personal rewards they receive.
It is the same with many businesses and banks today. Break the law, say for laundering money for terrorists or drug lords, pay a fine, nobody goes to jail, tomorrow is business as usual.
On the other side of this, if a regular person of regular means breaks the law, they are prosecuted to the fullest extent, especially if the prosecutor can make some political "hay" out of it. That prosecution, and fine, is intended to hurt the lessor subjects of the Kingdom, and deter them, and hold the rest of peasants in check by the example.
I don't think this will ever be easily changed unless all the present leadership is turned out of office, and new elected in. There is a " I am better than you" mentality in the people in charge today.
I also think, for fairness, the person who made this magazine available to this news-man elitist, and the dealer who sold the AR in Colorado to that news-man elitist, should be prosecuted if laws were broken. If we, ourselves stand behind the enforcement of the law, we can't give these people a "by" either.
