Today’s N&R front-page headline:
Concealed weapons permits are higher among legislators. Why?
Do I even need to say the majority of legislative permit holders are Republicans? With that in mind, I’ll offer up some answers:
a) Because Republicans are gun nuts who vote for less-restrictive gun laws;
b)Angry liberals have threatened their lives;
c) While any thinking person would harbor contempt for the people who recklessly spend our money, some have trouble expressing themselves in a rational manner;
d) There’s a concealed carry class offered to lawmakers, legislative aids and others who work at the General Assembly.
