  1. The way to get a bad law changed is to enforce it.

  2. One night Barney the Bear ambled down from the mountain to Bozeman, Montana to the Bear Paw Bar and Grill. He bellied up to the bar and called to the bartender, Bob, and bellowed, “Bartender Bob, bring me a beer.”

    Bartender Bob came over and said, “I’m sorry Barney the Bear, but we don’t serve beers to bears at the Bear Paw Bar and Grill in Bozeman.”

    Barney the Bear said, “Balderdash! Bring me a beer!”

    “I’m sorry Barney the Bear, but we don’t serve beers to bears at the Bear Paw Bar and Grill in Bozeman. Rules are rules.”

    “Listen, Bartender Bob, if you don’t bring me a beer I’m going to go over to that bar-maiden and devour her on the spot!”

    “Well, do what you have to do, Barney the Bear, but we don’t serve beers to bears at the Bear Paw Bar and Grill in Bozeman.”

    So Barney the Bear immediately went over to the bar-maiden and completely devoured her!

    He came back and bellowed, “Well, Bartender Bob, how about that beer?”

    Bartender Bob said, “I’m sorry Barney the Bear, but we don’t serve beers to drug addicts here at the Bear Paw Bar and Grill in Bozeman.”

    “Drug addicts?” said a befuddled Barney.

    “Why, sure. Didn’t you know that was a barbiturate?

  3. Same problem with booze.
    You have to be 21 to buy booze and to buy a handgun.
    Adulthood hath its rights, privileges, and responsibilities.

    That’s why the operative laws include terms like abuse and addiction and adjudication, not implied possible future criminality due to membership in some arbitrary, easily-identified-by-bureaucrats group.
    It’s a slippery slope from will probably be trouble to might be trouble to could probably someday be trouble. Heck, we all could be.

    Buuut, that’s prob’ly their goal. Eliminate due process, and the 2ndA evaporates.

    Far as I’m concerned, your rights cannot be taken away by anything less than judicial action. The gov’t must prove that you, as an individual, have acted in such a way that you must forfeit a right.

    No unconstitutional ex post facto law/regulation crap like this, either.

  4. So they oughtn’t be allowed to vote, either.

    You kidding? That would only leave the Dems with Illegal Immigrants and Dead People.

  5. Claire – love your small font comments. Their tone reminded me of Dilbert’s snarky last comments to his dumb boss.

    Doug said The gov’t must prove that you, as an individual, have acted in such a way that you must forfeit a right.

    Exactly. That’s why the TSA airport grope pisses me off so much, I won’t fly. I haven’t done anything, they’re not charging me with anything, I’m getting on a private, not government, owned vehicle, but they can strip me naked and ransack my belongings without cause.

    Now if an airline wants to search me, that’s OK. I might not fly them, but it’s their airplane and their service. I can fly under their rules or look elsewhere. Free market ‘n all that.

    The TSA crap is big step down that slippery slope.

  6. One of the questions on the Form 4473 is “Are you an alien illegally in the United States?”
    I wonder, If an illegal here under ‘deferred action’ were to answer no to that, would the background check come back denied?

    Also, “expressive”, because smoking marijuana is protected by the first amendment.

  8. Now you know why Bloomberg et al have such a hard-on for Universal Background Checks.
