Today’s “what the heck?” bill

In addition to a bevy of new anti-choice bills, State Senator Andrew Brock introduced this perplexing legislation today. Here’s the title:

“AN ACT TO PROHIBIT HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS FROM QUESTIONING PATIENTS ABOUT LAWFUL ACTIVITY RELATED TO FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION WHEN PROVIDING HEALTH CARE TO PATIENTS AND TO AUTHORIZE THE IMPOSITION OF A FINE ON HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS WHO ENGAGE IN THE PROHIBITED CONDUCT.”

Glad to know the senator really has his priorities in order.

    That’s not even the oddest of the 22, yes, twenty-two, bills that Mr Brock submitted in that single day (five abortion related).

    The fact that the majority of them have no additional sponsors should say a lot of about their quality.
