No Shirt, No Shoes, No Permit For Your Gun, No Problem!

Arizona will become the third state to allow people to carry concealed weapons without requiring any permit -- no background checks, no gun handling instruction -- just be of legal drinking age, and a gun is yours to conceal! Bring your new gun to the supermarket! The bowling alley! The spa! The gas station! Hell, even Starbucks says its okay!

An Arizona police chief made a valid point, one that may be running through your mind right now: "I know a lot of 21-year-olds; the maturity level is gravely concerning sometimes."  HA! I know a fuggin whole lot of people exceeding the permit-less-concealed-gun-wielding-age-requirement whose maturity levels are above and beyond gravely concerning -- not to mention those lacking any intellectual brain activity, let alone the wherewithall necessary to handle a gun. And don't even get me started on our country's mindless dolling out of police badges to the gun and power hungry Neanderthals and Napoleons with whom we (are supposed to) entrust our lives.

Look at the laws on the books.  Common sense dictates that, at the very least, possession of concealed weapons (as well as children -- we'll save that for another day) requires a requisite level of intelligence and rationality.

I just recently caught the tail-end of the movie, Orphan -- if you've seen it you know where I'm going with this. (And if you haven't seen it, I'll ruin the ending with reckless disregard to any slight inkling you may have had to watch the film -- you're welcome).  Oddly (or not so oddly) enough, the movie is about a murderous Russian orphan adopted by an American family who, you got it right, goes on a rampage murdering the family that took her in -- at one point seizing the family gun from the safe and proceeding to track down the innocent and deaf four year old sister. That movie fuggin suggs.  So do guns.  I digress.

Go stale-ass Constitution!!
