Gun nuts protecting us
November 24, 2013 - Harry Eagar
Sometimes the volume of gun-nuttery is too much for RtO to keep up with. Heck, that's true all the time, which is why this blog didn't link to the video of the New Mexico state trooper emptying his six-gun into a car full of children. You can find it yourself if your stomach is strong enough.
But this story (follow link) is too good to resist because of the devastating comment by cvryder2000.
You see, there was this Texas state senator -- a Republican it goes without saying -- who has to carry a concealed hogleg at all times because -- well, the story doesn't say why, but we an guess it's because he is delusional. And he tried to carry it onto a passenger plane.
Now he's facing a felony charge although since this is Texas and he is a white Republican RtO predicts the prosecutor will be less zealous than if he were a poor Mexican farmworker. Anyhow, nobody had anything to worry about because all gun-owners, unless the are gangbangers in Chicago, are trained, responsible and careful. It just slipped his mind that he was carrying a deadly weapon in a place full of people who had no desire to be shot, by accident or on purpose.
cvryder2000 nails it:
"I find it amazing that they always 'forgot'. How do you "forget" something as seemingly important (to you, anyway) as your gun?"
Certainly going armed in public places cannot endanger anyone, can it? Especially bars.
"In 2010, both the Tennessee state House and Senate overrode Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen’s veto on a bill to allow handguns in bars."
