But Congress being the corrupt, hands-in-our-pockets creatures that they are just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stuff this bill full of un-related pork-barrel spending and kick backs to well-connected friends, cronies, and contributors.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he had support from capitulating RINO cowards like Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-18), and Rep. John McHugh (NY-23) — but ANY Republican who supports and votes for this idiocy needs to be primaried and defeated the next time they are up for re-election.
You know what would make me feel safer when meeting public officials at public events, Peter? The ability to protect and defend myself with a legally carried handgun. I do not want to have to duck and cover and pray that the bad guy is a bad shot or not looking in my direction while I wait 10 minutes for the police to show up (the amount of time it took them to arrive at the Tuscon Safeway store after Jared Loughner’s shooting spree).
If Congress critters really wanted to feel safer in public, they should be encouraging responsible CHL holders to attend all of their public appearances.
