The laws and punishments concerning aiding and abetting vary from state-to-state, so let's see if Obama comes out and issues an executive order strengthening the law making it a federal crime for the good of nation on this issue, but don't hold your breath on it.
You can bet your life that the list omitted Democrat elected officials and Democrat public agency managers who own AND carry.
