Gun-Control Lover, Obama, PARDONS Councilman’s Federal Gun Charge


This is an interesting case of favoritism. Former Councilman, Sala Udin, was traveling from Pittsburgh to Mississippi when he was pulled over in Kentucky. He had an unloaded rifle and a jug of moonshine. This happened in 1970 and is NOT the first criminal charge he has received. He served as a councilman from the years 1995-2005; majority of his crimes were committed in 1968-1970.

President Barack Obama pardoned a former Pittsburgh city councilman’s 46-year-old federal gun charge.

Seventy-three-year-old Sala Udin says he filed a formal request for clemency four years ago and had given up hope when he was surprised on Monday.
