Instead of criticizing him, the Obama palace guard will instead gush over his compassion.
President Obama issued his first series of presidential pardons today, including one for a man who was convicted of possession of an unregistered firearm.
Larry Wayne Thornton of Forsyth, Ga., was sentenced to four years of probation for “possession of an unregistered firearm” and “possession of a firearm without a serial number.” He is one of 17 people pardoned today.
The pardon comes as Obama is emphasizing, as part of his gun control push, the need to know who is buying weapons.
Meanwhile, Obama won himself another award today.
