From the Left judiciary, when is a robber armed with a gun not guilty of armed robbery? Well, according to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, when the robber is illegally carrying a concealed firearm that accidentally becomes visible. Judge Richard Clifton of Hawaii wrote the opinion, thus: "Can a bank robber with a concealed gun who never mentions or insinuates having one, but who displays it inadvertently, be convicted of armed bank robbery? We believe the answer is no.... " Yep, this is the very same court that decided the Second Amendment doesn't mean what it plainly says about "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed," and that schoolchildren reciting the Pledge of Allegiance's phrase "under God" forms a national church denomination.

How can someone be a robber without being armed? I'd just laugh in their face, especially if it was a bank. [i]"That's not the point, the point is, a guy robbed the bank with a cell phone!"[/i]
