Be sure to check out today’s edition of the Fitzsimon File — “More guns, more guns, more guns” — which details the latest of gun deregulation nonsense at the General Assembly.
As Chris correctly points out in examining the legislation pushed yesterday in the House Judiciary I Committee by Rep. Jacqueline Schaffer (of anti-abortion fame):
“Jobs may still be hard to come by for thousands of people in North Carolina and many folks who are working are earning less, but lawmakers want to make sure that virtually everybody in the state can now buy a gun and take it anywhere they want regardless of the implications for public safety or property rights.
Whatever the question these days, more guns is part of the answer.”
The bill, which was approved in the Judiciary Committee yesterday, will be heard this afternoon in the House Rules Committee. Stay tuned for updates.
