In Dire Need of a Woodshedding

By  ·  January 16th, 2009   

I sincerely hate quoting WND – they’re about three steps down from the National Enquirer in my book – but they’ve got a point here, as corroborated by the Miami Examiner:

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., is hoping to pass a firearm-licensing bill that will significantly rewrite gun-ownership laws in America.

Among the more controversial provisions of the bill are requirements that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Further, the bill would order the attorney general to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner’s address in America.

Um, no.  Not just “no” but “come to my house and try and make me.”  

The bill claims its purpose is “to protect the public against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of firearms to criminals and youth.”

Are you seriously that naive?  Or just criminally fucking stupid?  

Oh wait, I’m asking that of an Elected Official, so the correct answer is C: All of the above.

  2. The naive, and quite possibly criminally fucking stupid, are the sheeple that keep electing the likes of Bobby Rush D-IL

  3. Jeff:
    As an (unwilling) Illinois resident, I can completely confirm that assessment. For some reason, Illinoisians(?) think it’s “charming” to have criminals run (and represent) their state.

    They. Are. Morons.

  6. Based on all your comments above – and 100+ years of empirical evidence – why exactly do we still allow the state of Illinois to even field politicians?
