What I find interesting is that he has admitted to a federal felony
violation of the National Firearms Act of 1934, then gone on to say that
everyone should be banned from doing the same, when its obviously rather
impossible to enforce (because, right now, DUH, everyone IS banned from
doing what he did). Since he is an admitted felon, and convicted felons
are the only segment of the population that has a majority in favor of
banning gun ownership by civilians (for obvious reasons), I think this
reflects pretty well on what sort of person he really is.
