Criminal Justice Quote: Gun Control Activist Busted For Taking a Gun to an Elementary School

     A Buffalo, New York community activist who is well known locally for pushing for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law has been arrested for--wait for it--carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school. The arrested gun control advocate, Dwayne Ferguson, caused quite a scene at Harvey Austin Elementary School….At about 4:15 PM on Thursday, February 6, 2014, police acted on a pair of anonymous 911 tips. A battalion of cops quickly swarmed the school. The brigade included over a dozen squad cars, the SWAT team and K9 units. The Erie County Sheriff's Air One helicopter and what appears to be an armored vehicle also turned up.

     The school was immediately placed on lockdown. Parts of two streets were closed….Ferguson, 52, was at Harvey Elementary because he works as a mentor in an after-school program for disadvantaged students. He said he frequently carries a pistol. He has a license but the license does not matter under the strict law Ferguson helped pass….
