The most cynical gun proposal I’ve ever seen.

Seth of In Effect makes Machiavelli seem like Mickey Mouse with his despicably cynical proposal that Wisconsin Democrats pass their own version of a concealed carry law.

Basically he thinks they should create a “carry” law that would prevent most law-abiding citizens from actually carrying a gun.

The Democrats could then take “credit” for passing a bill, cialis sick but not be troubled by very many citizens actually taking advantage of it.

I respect people who want to ban guns because they truly believe it’s the right thing to do. (Even though I disagree with them.)

I agree with people who think we have a constitutional right to bear arms and are therefore in favor of a real concealed carry law.

But to suggest that the legislature should pass a law that fools people into thinking their rights are being respected – but would make no real change – is cynical and unprincipled.

If Seth thinks Republicans will be satisfied by a law that forces you to beg some bureaucrat for permission to exercise a right that is enumerated in both the U.S. and Wisconsin Constitutions, viagra buy he’s not just cynical…he’s delusional.

I wonder how Seth would feel about a law that made you prove you had something worthwhile to say before your speech was protected by the First Amendment?
