Once again we see how ridiculous the Ferguson, MO, protesters are. This time, we have MO State Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat, arrested for blocking a street after disregarding several warnings to move out of the roadway. When arrested, she smelled strongly of alcoholic beverages, per the police. She was also armed with a loaded 9mm pistol. Senator Nasheed, a sponsor or supporter of several anti-gun bills in the Missouri Legislature, then refused a breath test.
DRINKS UP, DON’T SHOOT! State Senator Arrested Carrying Concealed Weapon In Ferguson, Possibly Under The Influence
In a perfect country, elected officials who get arrested would be suspended from office until the charges were resolved. But since that'll never happen, here's hoping that she at least loses her concealed weapons permit. She's not only a disgrace as far as being a "public servant" goes, but she doesn't rise to the level of responsibility and maturity demonstrated by the average gun owner either. Her party always calls for stripping people of their gun rights for even the most trivial offenses, so call me overly optimistic but I await the rush of Democrats calling for Nasheed to lose her CCW and surrender her guns immediately.
Oh--and just to get it out there again, since we're talking Ferguson: "I support Officer Wilson!"
