Hypocrisy on the Gun-controlling Front: Schumer and Feinstein Pack Heat

Second Amendment Hypocrites: Senators Schumer and Feinstein Pack Heat Via KABA comes this interesting story of 2 anti-gun senators who have concealed carry permits.

From New York:
[A] check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an "unrestricted" pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it's evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules -- one for Americans and one for himself.
And from California:
And then we have Senator Diane Feinstein on the Left Coast who possesses something more rare than a conservative Republican in San Francisco -- an unrestricted concealed weapons permit. Apparently without shame, she participated in a citywide gun turn-in program that was intended to create some kind of statue from the donated guns that were to be melted down. One of her police body guards let it slip that she contributed a cheap model for the meltdown, while retaining her .357 magnum revolver for her own personal self-defense.
A .357? Whodathunkit?

You won't see this story in the Mainstream Media, since that would involve attacks on their favorite anti-gun politicos.

One of the tests for the existence of a police state is "do the same rules apply to everyone." Schumer and Feinstein apparently believe that they should have special treatment. (Schumer also makes frequent use of NY City cops as his personal security force.) Who is it that is supposed to be on the side of the average citizen?
