Every elected official or candidate in the country seems to be issuing statements saying one thing or another about the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling on the DC handgun ban. First off, before the NRA armed lobbyists come looking for me, I was really not that disappointed on the ruling. I would have been if it had allowed everyone a constitutional right to carry concealed weapons or assault rifles. I own firearms and don't think any ruling by a Supreme Court would be effective in lessening the amount of handguns or sporting guns. There are a gazillion of them out there and we can see how ineffective any controls would be by just looking at Iraq. That place has a hell of a lot more guns since bus\cheney went in there to make the place peaceful.
I am still trying to figure out why the NRA thinks it is a good idea to let people carry loaded weapons under their coats into movies and churches. I still marvel how the New Mexico Legislature, under the guidance of now vanquished State Senator Shannon Robinson, passed a concealed weapon law but made it illegal to carry them into the Capitol building. I guess they wanted protection from someone who might go postal, but it was okay if weapons went into the showing of a kid's movie.
I am starting a treatment to essentially dissolve my face so precancerous thingies will disappear. Apparently in about two weeks I will be the color of a lobster, but not as good looking as one. All those years of golf induced sunburns have caught up to me. Things could be worse.
