Strict gun-control states shooting themselves in the foot

Beretta announced last week it was becoming the latest gun maker to expand beyond the borders of its home state following passage of tougher gun laws. Instead of building in Maryland, which adopted stiff new regulations last year, Beretta is putting up a new manufacturing and research facility in the Nashville, Tenn. suburb of Gallatin.”

Let’s see how many jobs Maryland’s gun-phobia creates; for that matter, let’s see how well the smug assumption of tougher gun control=fewer violent crimes works out.

Elsewhere, Chicago leads the way in the weenie-fication of America.
Administrators at a school in the South Suburbs of Chicago are up in arms over a state law (House Bill 0183) that requires schools to post small signs announcing that guns cannot be carried in schools.

Some school officials aren’t happy about the stickers because they contain a very basic image of a gun [emphasis mine – Paco].

“It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,’” Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

Nolan stressed that she is very concerned with “safety and security” and concerned that, somehow, someone could wrongly interpret an image of a gun emblazoned with the universal sign for prohibiting something.

“I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” Nolan also fretted.

She said she would prefer “something more subtle.”
How about a big happy face with the words, “Arms are for hugging"?

Not only a weenie, but an especially hysterical one at that.

Seriously. Is anyone working on a cure for liberalism?

I think we're running out of time.
