Talk about your loose cannon on deck

It seems as if an Illinois anti-gun, Million Mom Marcher has been arrested on, what else, gun charges.

Annette Stevens became a gun control activist after her son was shot to death several years ago. She told a newspaper the gun belonged to her late son, and when she found it, she didn't know what to do with it, so she put it in a drawer.

Police reportedly found the gun and illegal drugs while executing a search warrant at Stevens' home in connection with a spate of drive-by shootings in the area. Stevens insists the search was illegal.

Apparently, the gun found in her home had had the serial number scratched off.

Y'know, I can't think of anything wittier that could beat this. Sometimes reality just has to speak for itself.

Sound to quarters! Sound to quarters! Tragic irony to larboard!
