I happened upon a story about a Greensboro man who was charged with speeding, having a concealed firearm without a license, and possession of a stolen firearm. That wasn’t the odd part, the odd part is the man’s wife and business partner is on the Greensboro City Council. Turns out the wife, Marikay Abuzuaiter, does have a concealed handgun permit, but her husband did not. The man was speeding and when he was pulled over for breaking the law by speeding he was concealed two firearms in the vehicle and one of them was stolen. The Councilwoman explained he recently purchased the firearm and did not know it was stolen.
So lets let the man off, we’re all friends here right? Not so fast. Marikay pushed for a resolution last year for checks on gun buyers in Greensboro. Seems like as a CHP holder and a gun control advocate she would have instructed her husband not to break the law, at least that’s how my mind works. I guess rules and laws don’t mean much to this family. Their restaurant owes almost $35,000 in back taxes and if you read the article the history of default is clear. I’m not sure how voters allow people like this in office, but they asked for it and they go it! While one cannot hold a wife responsible for the singular actions of a husband, they can hold her accountable for her own actions. Something tells me she won’t see a third term, but stranger things have happened.
