A perfectly fine idea


Of course, Massachusetts has the most educated population in the country, while Texas is, well, Texas:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Long depicted as the rootin’-tootin’ capital of American gun culture, Texas is one of the few states with an outright ban on the open carry of handguns.

That could change in 2015, with the Republican-dominated Legislature and Gov.-elect Greg Abbott expected to push for expanded gun rights.

“If open carry is good enough for Massachusetts, it’s good enough for the state of Texas,” Abbott said the day after his election last month.

And if Texas, which allows concealed handguns, embraces open carry — rolling back a 140-year ban — it would be the largest state to have done so.

  1. In a poll released this morning 21% of Republicans thought that “rectal feeding” was not torture. Those folks all agree with Cheney and probably live in Texas.
    Speaking of riding the crazy train, a federal appeals court last week said a Florida law requiring applicants for welfare benefits to undergo drug testing was unconstitutional. What do you think about that Wisconsin?
    Also from Sunshine state the Florida Supreme Court questioned the validity of the “stand your ground ” last week. The court said that the Florida legislature did not detail in the law who should have the burden of proof when a firearm is used. “We don’t know what the legislatures intent was, therefore the law is unenforceable.” Isn’t it just like ALEC to write ambiguous laws?

  2. Well we just didn’t want to have to spell it out. The burden of proof is always on the Black person. There.
