    Dwayne Ferguson a anti-gun activist and a proponent of the Safe Act showed up at school with a gun causing about an hour long "Lockdown".

    Ferguson said he often carries a gun, but didn't realize he was still carrying when he entered school property.

    His fellow anti-gun activists are claiming it was an honest mistake and he should not be charged with the two felony counts.

    I wonder if the "I forgot" defense would work for a "Pro-Gun" activist that did the same thing?

    You should be aware of carrying a firearm.

    Many anti-gun activists insist on laws due to psycho social problems they have. They know that they are not responsible and not to be trusted. Therefore everyone else must be incapable of self control or individual responsibility, and require government intervention in order to be held to those standards.

    True. If you are not, why are you wearing it?

    You hear all the time about holsters - "It's so comfortable I forget I'm wearing it" - but I believe this is a stretch. You may have comfort but as soon as you start moving around - especially when learning of a possible gunman on campus - I don't think you are not going to remember.

    Look at what NY has done to innocent travelers caught by delays. It is persecution and prosecution to the max and no excuses allowed. No excuses should be allowed here but probably will be. If the guy was a true activist he would plead guilty and accept the consequences but more likely he is just another hypocrite like the people in office that passed this abomination.

    hmmmm I usually notice when I'm without one.

    Had to go into a federal building a month ago, and also a county building.

    No one batted an eye, when I removed my belt with the metal buckle, dropping my belt and empty holster into the basket.

    Turns out the county would have checked my fire-arm at the door.

    I'll be easy on those who 'forget', it not that they forget so much that everything is normal when the gun is on the hip.

    In this case, I think that the guy should be used in another way.
    Hypocrisy, lot's more mileage to be gained by pushing his view that the guns are ok.... Kinda like a jut-jitsu move. Use their momentum.
    Heck, if he could avoid prosecution, he might just change side! :)

    Be careful what you ask for, you my just receive it! Seems that is what happened to this dude. The irony of it is he will be a felon now if he is convicted (as he damned well should be!) and can no longer possess a firearm. That is as it should be IMO. The only recourse would be to repeal the law but even if that happens his conviction should stand barring a pardon from Cuomo. The political price that would have to be paid would be too great though If I understand New York politics at all. However, Cuomo could issue a pardon as he is leaving office with little fallout. This has happened before http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/08/esteban-nunez_n_1867393.html

    I sorta agree with your notion. But ...

    He apparently is very anti...pushed along with others for the SAFE Act. Let him make the first pro-gun move...then we can talk.

    normally i would say dont prosecute but hypocrits like this should be prosecuted and sentenced to the fullest extent of their own repressive anti-american laws. no bail, no parole, no early release, hard time

    I went back and read the article s-l-o-w-e-r and more completely.

    Since he helped author the law, I 'll update my view to 'fullest extent of the law' also.

    the futzing douche deserves it.

    Actually I would love to watch that fight! The ACLU, however, has a stated policy that is in direct contradiction with findings by the SCOTUS regarding the individual right to bear arms. I am not sure they would take the case, but they might...

    This from their website (emphasis in bold is mine):
