Gun Laws Are Easy

Jay has a post up on the infamous "gun charges".

While I think he has a point, I also think that those arrested could have been just as easily charged with EPA violations or child endangerment or plotting to do bad stuff.  The problem is that there is a law for virtually everything.  If the police or ATF or FBI or whoever decides that they need to arrest you, they can always find something to charge you with.  Firearms laws are just low hanging fruit.

  1. I agree and almost did a blog myself on this. I decided not to but it prompted me on some other similar blogs about "gun charges". It's just a "good charge" for the government to show that what they are doing is justifiable.
