So is he their '80 percent friend,' too?

The civilian disarmament lobby has been making as much noise as possible recently about a new "study" released by the (notoriously anti-gun rights) International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), calling for (gasp!) more draconian firearms laws in the U.S. Both War on Guns and Of Arms and the Law have done an admirable job of pointing out that not only was this civilian disarmament manifesto largely sponsored by the rabidly anti-gun rights (and enormously deep-pocketed) Joyce Foundation--Joyce Foundation personnel apparently wrote the thing, too.

Interestingly, amid all the talk of Rudy "I support the Fourth . . . er, Second Amendment (as long as nothing 'dramatic' happens)" Giuliani's attempts to convince gun owners that he is on our side now, it seems that he will be an honored speaker at an IACP event in a few weeks. For an even richer helping of irony, the event will be held in New Orleans--too bad former New Orleans Police Superintendent Edwin "we're going to take all the weapons" Compass had to resign--this sounds like just his cup of tea.

So, I wonder if Giuliani is going to say that he is their "80 percent friend," as well as that of gun owners. At least in front of that crowd, his confusion about the Bill of Rights shouldn't be a problem.

Rudy and hypocrisy? Nahhhhh.... Couldn't be. He believes in the second amendment now, right?

Or the Fourth Amendment--we're not really sure. Of course, if "something dramatic happens," all bets are off.
