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?”
“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.”
