SHOCK!!! SHOW-ME BILL WOULD MAKE FILING ANTI-GUN LEGISLATION A FELONY!!!
For the record, the old line about "extremism in the defense of liberty" is a phrase mostly touted by political neophytes, morons and the kind of idiots who would blow-up children and innocents because of some low-rent pulp book.
And speaking of extremism and an embarrassing lack of understanding regarding the Constitution . . .
CHECK OUT A MISSOURI HOUSE POLITICO HOPING TO MAKE FILING ANTI-GUN LEGISLATION A FELONY!!!
Witness: HB 633
"Specifies that any member of the general assembly who proposes legislation that further restricts an individual's right to bear arms will be guilty of a class D felony"
Via The Turner Report
I don't even want to think the kind of logical hoops that Republican Representative Mike Leara had to jump through in order to make sense of this abortion of a legislative effort.
The bill seems to suggest that in order to protect 2nd Amendment freedoms it's necessary to deprive freedom from legislators for filing paper work. WTF???
Don't get it twisted, in the current gun control debate sparked by media hype TKC has consistently sided with 2nd Amendment advocates who want to defend the right to bear arms.
But Rep. Leara's effort is just misguided, misinformed, inconsistent with any defense of personal liberty and simply misunderstands not only The Constitution but also the basic principles that support gun rights.
Put simply, Rep. Leara looks like a rube for actually publishing this kind of stupidity in a serious forum. The bill is low comedy that's unworthy of even the most reactionary blogs and suddenly makes the Missouri GOP NO-Veto majority seem somewhat less fearsome.
