Someone in the State House sure does like handguns. First, legislators sponsored a bill to allow folks to carry concealed pistols in bars and restaurants. Now there’s a bill to require cities to allow concealed guns in parks. And Representative Mark Hilton is sponsoring a class in the legislature on carrying concealed guns.
 
Legislators carrying concealed handguns – surely they have the right but, still, the idea leaves a feeling of discomfort. Maybe it’s the thought of sitting in a restaurant with a legislator who loves his pistol so much he has to carry it with him everywhere – but not being sure which of the fellows at the bar he is.

  1. Carbine says:

    What are you worried about Carter? Do you really think that you are safer in areas where law-abidding citizens are not allowed to carry a concealed weapon?

  2. Chris says:

    Carbine — Honest, law-abiding citizens are fine. But, we’re talking about arming politicians, who are used to taking money from others against their will.

  3. Carbine says:

    Ha! That’s a good one. But they ain’t a-one of ’em got the guts to wield the weapon himself.
