It’s been a little over a year since the most popular post to date here at The Patriot Perspective. David Gregory waved a 30-round magazine that’s illegal in DC on TV in clear violation of the law. NBC staff went to the DC police beforehand and asked permission but was denied, so they willingly and knowingly violated DC law, and yet no one faced charges, in a clear case where if you’re rich and powerful and politically connected, the laws don’t apply to you.
Now this year, Mike Vanderboegh over at Sipsey Street Irregulars (famously one of the blogs that broke Fast and Furious) has started a little Christmas season campaign called “Toys for Totalitarians”, wherein he sends standard capacity rifle magazines to governors of anti-gun states and a few media figures who’ve championed for anti-gun causes – often where their receipt and possession of a magazine is in violation of their own laws, just to yank their chains and invite them to arrest themselves and enforce their own laws.

Re: Your award in the Sipsey Street Irregulars Toys for Totalitarians Campaign.
Congratulations! Enclosed you will find my Christmas gift to you, one twenty-eight-round standard capacity AR-15 magazine in 7.62×39 caliber, manufactured by C Products Defense, Inc. of Bradenton, Florida. You have been awarded this gift as part of what my friend David Codrea calls my “Toys for Totalitarians Campaign.” We had a few magazines left over after sending them to the governors of Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland and New York so we decided to select collectivist media purveyors who likewise deserved our scorn and your name was among five at the top our list! You earned that thanks to your previous run-in with the District of Columbia’s draconian law when you flashed an AR-15 magazine to make a gun control point and suffered not at all thanks to the usual collectivist hypocrisy that is characteristic of the anointed of the DC Mandarin class to which you and your wife, former federal prosecutor and former Fannie Mae executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, Beth Wilkinson, belong. (We could chat about her role in the cover-up of the Oklahoma City bombing, but then I really don’t have the inclination at the moment — so many smuggling challenges, so little time.)
So your anti-firearm hypocrisy is legendary and it goes without saying that you have a distinct bias when it comes to citizen disarmament. So I selected a magazine for you in the caliber of 7.62×39, for that is the round originally designed for Mikhail Kalashnikov‘s AK-47. Given your collectivist politics, I thought it was an appropriate choice, since Kalashnikov was an unrepentant Soviet to the end of his days. (Kalashnikov, of course, just crossed over to meet his Maker. I’m sure his conversation with God about Stalin was an interesting one.) From one collectivist to another, I thought. Dulce et decorum est.
Anyway, now that you’ve accepted another piece of technology that is illegal within the confines of the District of Columbia, you are once again in violation of the law. Why don’t you go down and turn yourself in for arrest? I mean, if you are intellectually honest you would, right? Oh, wait, the terms “intellectually honest” and NBC cannot be used in the same sentence, now can they?
As for myself I will continue my campaign of armed civil disobedience — including smuggling — against this latest spate of unconstitutional state laws. You may choose to twist that news in service to the collectivist meme however you like. You always do.
Sincerely, and hoping you have a happy socialist Kwanzaa (a holiday invented by an FBI COINTELPRO stooge),

If more people were to do this, it might work like those old “mail a brick” protests. Hmm…
