The hypocrisy of many Liberal lawmakers is regularly on display, but no where was it more obvious than Monday, October 21st in Ferguson, Missouri. Missouri State Senator Jamilah Nasheed is a Democrat who has co-sponsored several anti-gun bills. She was arrested during a protest in front of the Ferguson Police Department and charged with failure to obey a lawful order and walking in the roadway, after she and other protestors refused to move from the street. The big surprise came when police found the senator was carrying a loaded 9mm, along with extra ammunition.

Police Chief Tom Jackson says Senator Nasheed smelled strongly of alcohol, although she refused to take a breathalyzer. She claimed after her release on Tuesday that she was not intoxicated. She also said the event was a “symbolic arrest” to send a “message to the protesters that we can protest peacefully and that we must protest peacefully, and that we want justice for Michael Brown.” Nasheed declined to answer questions about the pistol, but she did tell reporters she has a concealed carry permit.

The arrest report obtained by KMOV.com states “observation of Nasheed noted that she appeared to be intoxicated while parts of her speech was incoherent and slurred.” The arresting officer added that “several officers…smelled the odor of alcohol emitting from her breath and person of Nasheed.”

It is not against the law in Missouri to drink while in possession of a permitted gun. Nasheed is schedule to appear in court January 15, 2015.

The St. Louis Riverfront Times profiled the controversial lawmaker in 2011:

She hustled and brawled and scrapped through the projects, got locked up in juvenile hall for stabbing somebody, dropped out of high school and then somehow reached political office, where she is now working to steer her people’s daughters and nephews and grandkids away from the life she escaped.

So now she hustles and brawls and scraps through Jefferson City. She represents the most dangerous district in the most dangerous city in America, a district that is liberal and black in a state that leans conservative and white…

Obama’s hidden agenda: More than just your guns!
