Anti-Gun Detroit Mayor Ordered To Jail

Anti-gun Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been ordered to jail by a circuit court judge for failing to notify the court of his trip to Canada, and for violating terms of his bond.

The controversial mayor, who is being investigated on perjury, misconduct and obstruction of justice charges, related to a civil trial, humbled himself before Judge Ronald Giles, who would not play along.

"Despite Kilpatrick's humble apologies to the court beforehand, Giles said he needed to treat Kilpatrick as an ordinary citizen and sent him immediately to jail. Giles revoked Kilpatrick's bond and suspended all travel."

I think more bad news is probably coming Mr. Kilpatrick's way over time. He has played fast and loose with his power in the Motor City. Detroit residents who believe in self defense and the right to own firearms -- unfettered -- probably have a little bit of a smirk on their faces this morning.
