I misread "thief" as "self" because of the typo. I was scared--has literal martyrdom entered the political scene?
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. ~
I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

I don't see why that would make justify labeling him a hypocrite. A hypocrite is someone who professes some belief that she does not really hold. As far as we know, this guy voted against a law which was passed. There are numerous reasons one might have for voting against a law. One might be that you think the law is a bad idea. For all we know, he voted against the law because he believed it was a bad idea. You might think it's a bad idea because, say, you think that more gun related violence will follow from the law (just an example) and you think that more gun related violence is bad. But, believing that the law is a bad idea for this reason is not the same as professing that one will not use the law in one's defense. It is only the latter that would justify calling someone a hypocrite who uses the law in her defense not the former.
Moreover, that he shot a couple of constituents he appeal to for votes is orthogonal to whether he's a hypocrite.
Ok, where on FOXNEWS are they going to actually present the facts? Like the bill itself. Nowhere. Because they want it to seem he's anti gun. If it was a GUN CONTROL law, then obviously they dont want us to read it, because then its not good news. If its not a public "outrage" its not worth putting in the news, apperently.
