Last week, the Des Moines Register ran a editorial about the State of Missouri going to Constitutional Carry. Typical for the liberal rag that it is, it was full of crying and panty wetting. You can read it all here.
Missouri is a great place to visit, offering professional sports, stunning lakes, cultural attractions and historical sites that Iowa can’t match. But we wouldn’t want to work for the state’s tourism division. We can imagine the calls staffers must be answering from potential visitors:
“Yes, ma’am, Missourians will be able to carry concealed weapons without a permit. And without completing safety training. And without a background check. And yes, they’ll have more freedom to shoot if threatened.”
“I can’t say whether more criminals, mentally ill people or Chiefs tailgaters will be carrying guns, sir.”
That's nothing but fear mongering at it's finest. They also passed Stand your Ground. To which the paper had more panty wetting to add.
Among other things, lawmakers passed a “stand your ground” law that says people no longer have a duty to try to retreat before using lethal force if they think their life is in danger. They expanded the right of not only homeowners to defend their property with guns, but also their guests such as babysitters.
Oh, so now you can get a babysitter that can actually defend your children. That's bad how? As always, be sure to read the comments. Some of them are absolute gun hater gold.
*My boss at the pizza store is a Bosnian that came here in the 90's. He and his wife took jobs as delivery drivers for a pizza store and about 10 years ago, the bought a franchise. He's actually one of the better bosses I've ever had.
Several years ago, a Pizza Hut driver walked into a trap and a punk tried to rob him. The driver managed to get the punks gun away from him and drew his own gun and shot the asshole 3 times in the guts. Pizza hut fired him. While all of this was going on, I asked the boss if he would fire me if I shot a bad guy. His answer was that as long as I was legally carrying, he was good with the fact that I carried.
Lat year, in the first part of December, he sent Naomi and I to Las Vegas for 4 days all expenses paid. A reward for the two of us being loyal employees.
Grand daughter update.
They took out the IV and removed the oxygen tube. They got to put on her first outfit. Headband made by Naomi.
She still has her feeding tube, but she is gaining weight. They are hoping to bring her home at the end of the month.
