Failure To Think Is Inexcusable

Let’s Get The Stoopit™ Out Of Government
We Could Start in Denver Colorado

Failure to think. Not jut circular logic, but spiral logic. Death spiral logic. Toss ‘em, start over. You ought not to be allowed to be this stupid or this dishonest and hold a job in government.

DENVER—A proposal to let Colorado residents carry concealed weapons without a permit failed Monday over concerns that it would make it easier for criminals and the mentally ill to have guns in public places.

A Senate committee rejected the bill on a 3-2 party-line vote, with Democrats voting against it. It’s the second year in a row the proposal has failed, but identical legislation is still running in the Republican-controlled House.

The bill would allow anyone legally able to have a gun to carry it concealed in public places, including colleges and private schools. Law enforcement officials testified against the bill, saying that removing the need for a concealed-carry permit would eliminate a safeguard authorities have to prevent some people from having weapons.

Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said every year he denies conceal-carry permit requests from people who are mentally ill, are suicidal, or have substance abuse problems.

“These are people who otherwise are legally able to carry a firearm, and under this bill could carry a concealed firearm. These are people who are sometimes psychotic,” he said.

Stop me if I’m wrong, but the basic definition of a criminal is one who does not obey the law, right?  So how is a permitting process going to even slow these people down?

Let’s not forget the purchasing process is still in place, and it’s still run by the feds, with that NICS system and all. Which, by LAW, disqualifies proven hard core criminals and the mentally ill already. Which means that they can’t legally buy a gun to begin with. Well, at least they can’t legally buy a gun from a gun store. Not sure how the disqualifications extend to personal sales, but I bet they do. Guaranteed, right?

PS - the Sheriff ought to be horse whipped, shot, and then fired. Nervy mother fucker, ain’t he, carrying out his own laws? Last time I checked, Colorado is NOT a “may issue” state, it is a “shall issue” one. Run this corrupt badge the hell out of town ASAP.

Republicans argued that they are trying to protect Second Amendment rights and that allowing law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon without a permit would increase public safety because people could more easily defend themselves.

...

Sen. Bob Bacon, a Democratic member of the committee that rejected the bill, said he worried about people being able to have firearms on college campuses, and he questioned Republicans’ argument that law-abiding citizens would be the ones taking advantage of the law.

“For me, law-abiding citizen is not a permanent condition,” he said. “All of us, on certain occasions, can snap,” he added.

And boy howdy, if the above quotes aren’t the clearest example of the core differences between the two parties, I don’t know what is. The Repubs want to pass the bill to increase your freedom and safety, both of which are your responsibility. The Dems don’t want to pass it because you can’t be trusted; you are a criminal in waiting and must be overseen by your masters in government. For your own good.

Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
