Michael Moore’s bodyguard arrested for unlicensed weapon

A bodyguard of filmmaker Michael Moore, who has long been a proponent of stringent gun control, was arrested at New York’s JFK airport for carrying an illegal firearm.

According to a Fox News report:

Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.

After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month, Moore tweeted to his followers:

“Only minutes away from pundits & politicians say, “This isn’t the time to talk about gun control.” Really? When is that moment?”

and,

“The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy.”

    Typical limousine-liberal! Wants rules forced upon us, but lives his own life completely free of all restrictions under the assumption he is "entitled" to his dispensation because he is more gifted, talented, valuable, etc. than the rest of us poor pedestrian folk. Moore is simply a rich liberal who is unaffected by the rules he wants imposed on us, as proved by his being accompanied by armed bodyguards he can afford because he is rich while wanting all of us unarmed and at the mercy of criminals. Plus, if he is so concerned about the income disparity in America, why doesn't he just give all his money away and live on $50,000.00 a year?

    Because he is a hypocrite who is also a tyrant, that's why.

    Yes to the above but do not forget that he is part of the royal, privileged class and not one of the peasants as the rest of us are. They are so very important that they must be protected from the riff raff, while we will be expected to just submit to whomever wishes us harm or try to protect ourselves with kitchen ware and pots and pans for helmets. We are expendable, they must be protected to procreate for a better world.

    It's similar to Mayor Bloomberg buying a 40oz big gulp…..If your famous in America you get to tell the rest of us how to live, of course the Celebs are not to be bound by these rules….Micheal Moore is a bag of wind who can now go on Pierce Morgan's show on CNN and Bitch and moan about conspiracies.

    Real nice to wish physical and medical harm/death on this guy. Way to show that you're a better person. I know when I feel like I've taken the high road, it is typically after cursing, mocking, and wishing harm on others. As ironic as this is, and as messed up as things are, it is never okay to behave the way the lot of you have so far. It's just more grandstanding and shouting at those with whom you disagree. This is the kind of thing that we learn doesn't get us very far as toddlers in kindergarten.
