MIchael Moore's bodyguard arrested on gun charge

This might be one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. Not "ha ha" funny, but like "Huh - well what do ya know?" Apparently Michael Moore thinks America is obsessed with guns and that all they're good for is promoting and prolonging the "culture of fear" (his words) that surrounds them and their use (or so he says). But I guess it's ok for his bodyguard to have one, you know, just in case one of those crazy conservatives takes "Fahrenheit 9/11" or "Bowling for Columbine" the wrong way and tries to put him on that controversial new "ventilation" diet. Two questions come to mind: 1) Do you think Moore will bail out his incarcerated employee and defend his actions (carrying a gun in NY while only being licensed to carry in CA and FL), and 2) Do you think Moore will take this opportunity to champion the cause of liberty and work to ensure that all Americans have freedom of self-defense?

Nah, I didn't think so either.
