After Getting A Grip, Assume The Position?

I merely point out how Kerry is a hypocrite. Matt at Stop The Bleating points out that Kerry could be a felon.

Though I must point out that the law Kerry may have in fact violated is unconstitutional. I see nothing which gives the federal government authority to prohibit transactions concerning firearms, or to specify under what circumstances a person may purchase a firearm from another (& no, the interstate commerce clause would be misapplied in relation to the federal firearms laws so it is not a source of authority in this case). Not that Kerry would make those arguments - his would assumedly be closer to "But I'm not a peasant!". Still I'd have felt like a Kerry hypocrite if I hadn't pointed that out.

Wouldn't it be delicious if the .gov decided that Kerry's gift did break the law, and he was forced to argue the unconstitutionality of the law in his defense?

Flipping positions for his own advantage is nothing new for Kerry, but it would make DiFi and Teddy's heads explode.
