Mascot wants his Rifle

What bothers me about THIS is that we have to have elected officials tell us that the application of common sense is OK. Is the mascot going to wear a sign on his back that says, “They passed a law, I’m legal.”  And, if it bothers someone that the mascot has a gun, is it going to not bother them when they find out he has been granted an exception?

Why not get our law makers to pass legislation that actually makes sense. Like making it legal to slap a nose full of boogers out of folks that do and say stupid things. It’ll never happen but I bet we see anti-nose picking laws on the books before long.

Oh, and yeah, someone tell Mr. Jared Hunt – the author of this piece – that its not a musket, its a rifle. A musket is a muzzle-loaded, smooth bore long gun, fired from the shoulder. Muskets were designed for use by infantry.

Why can’t I be in charge of everything?

    The idea that they’re up against a stupid piece of legislation called “Safe Schools Act” makes it even more ridiculous. It’s a bloody oxymoron!

    Bunch of bed-wetting liberals complaining about good, normal things.
