SAFE Act Proponent Charged for Carrying Gun in a School

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  On February 6th 2014, peace activist and SAFE Act gun control proponent Dwayne Ferguson was arrested with a gun on his person at Buffalo, New York’s Harvey Austin Elementary School.

Friends have rallied to his side to say he ought not face the SAFE Act felony charges he supported for everyone else because it was “an honest mistake.”

According to The Buffalo News, 52-year old Ferguson said he “frequently carries the gun, for which he has a permit” and that he went to the school as part of a mentoring program, without even thinking about the gun being on his person.

The school received a call that a man with a gun was on campus about 4:15 PM. Thereafter, those on campus for afterschool programs were placed on lock-down. Ferguson called a Buffalo police lieutenant to ask why the school was locked down and was told a gunman had been reported on campus.

Supporter Rev. James E. Giles said Ferguson then led about 50 kids “into the cafeteria and closed the doors” to keep them safe. President of Buffalo United Front, George Johnson, added, “[Ferguson] probably was in a position to help the police not knowing that he was the one they were looking for.”

Ferguson was charged with “two counts of criminal possession of a weapon” under SAFE Act provisions.

    1. Aside from the SAFE violation, isn’t he also in violation of federal law? Will federal charges be brought?

    2. Friends have rallied to his side to say he ought not face the SAFE Act felony charges he supported for everyone else because it was “an honest mistake.”

      Besides, aren’t tyrants above the law??!!! This guy created panic and chaos by ignoring a law that he wants everyone else to be subjected to. He has also decided that, being armed, he would have been able to protect the children at the school. Isn’t that exactly what 2A supporters have been saying all along??? And, yet, despotism marches on.

    3. The “double standard” rears it’s head again! You’re supposed to do what they say, not what they do!

    4. Off to jail with you!! (this is what you wanted…)

    5. Lock up this hypocrite, enough of the tyrannical double standards.

    7. They’ll sweep it under the table, because he’s black! He’ll never serve one day in jail! Face it, liberals are protected in this country and especially black liberals. If this guy was a white conservative, they’d nail him to a cross…. and you can take that to the bank!

    8. Are you saying that Liberals all across America are “cheer leaders” for the “Monochrome Coalition”?

    9. of course he took the kids into “safety”

      wouldnt it be obvious if he didnt

      for whatever reason

      like carl rowan

    10. […] This is probably good news for this joker. […]
