Why is it okay for the Feds to make some laws which conservatives support that override state laws; but with other federal laws that would trump states rights, the conservatives get all upset?
Right now the House of Representatives is all excited about voting on a bill, H.R. 822, which would force states to honor all concealed gun permits from anywhere here in the US. That’s the federal government interfering with my state’s law, dag burn it! And over 600 mayors from both parties have said
Plus 72% of voters polled across the country are opposed to interference from Washington on standards for carrying concealed weapons. Though that could cut both ways; some might be opposed to Washington placing any standards.
There’s a very big overlap between the “give ’em their guns, state’s rights be damned” groups, and the folk who don’t want marriage equality on a federal level, because that’s government interference. So why the disconnect?
And in other news, a porn actor’s remains were found in a badger’s nest in Wales. Percy Foster, a 3′ 6″ tall actor known for his work in Hi-Ho Hi-Ho It’s Up the Arse We Go, was all set to launch the next phase of his career as a Gordon Ramsey look-alike in fap films when he met his untimely end as a badger snack.
Of course, it could just be a gag.
