Some follow-up on Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania Mayor James Schiliro, the member of Michael Bloomberg’s anti–Second Amendment outfit “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” who was busted after demanding homosexual favors at gunpoint:
Schiliro was sentenced to 10 to 20 months for an alcohol-fueled episode last February in which he had a police car bring a former neighbor – a 20-year-old to whom he said he was attracted – to his home, made him drink wine, and refused to let him leave for 3 1/2 hours.
During the encounter, Schiliro threatened to kill himself and fired a gun into a stack of papers. …
In November, Schiliro was convicted of recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, official oppression, and furnishing liquor to a minor.
Despite the nauseating sniveling that can be expected at any trial these days,
Judge James F. Nilon evidently was not moved by the testimony from Schiliro and his family members.
“I don’t think you appreciate the seriousness of the nature of the behavior that you engaged in,” Nilon said.
As noted at CNS News,
Schiliro was one of 600 mayors who signed a letter urging Obama to support needless gun restrictions on law-abiding Americans.
I don’t think voters appreciate the seriousness of letting people of James Schiliro’s caliber threaten our constitutional rights — although keeping guns out of the hands of politicians might be reasonable.
