It was 40 years ago today that it would have been nice if John Hinckley's aim was a little better.

“I only know that it has to do with women,” Gaetz told the Times. “I have a suspicion that someone is trying to recategorize my generosity to ex-girlfriends as something more untoward.”
Those are all certainly words.

That's where my mind went too.

Regardless.... I hope this fucker gets torched. I guess he isn't "resigning early" to get that Newsmax gig after all.

They’re also not happy with businesses who exclude people carrying guns. Because people who enter a store have a right to protect themselves.

That's a great statement Brian. And, regarding the guns, I remember even in the old western movies, the saloons in Dodge City, Tombstone or wherever had a sign at the entrance telling the hombres to check their guns at the door.

Was picking up lunch today and three young men came in with two toddlers. All three men were packing heat. Carrying the hand guns in the pockets of their jeans and/or jogging pants. Made me feel real safe. Never know when those ladies making sammiches were going to hop the counter and lay a beat down on those guys.

Has it really turned out to be that dangerous?

We’ve had widespread concealed carry in Utah for years. Permits have been required until recently but permits were basically automatic. There have been very few shootings by people carrying concealed weapons. It’s been surprisingly very rare.

Kansas has had permitless concealed carry for at least five years, too. It hasn't turned Wichita into a modern day version of Dodge City.
