No to gun control, yes to the death penalty

Gun ControlPersonal Weapon ControlInterior Policy

Outside observers must wonder what goes on in our state legislature. On one hand, the majority restricts citizens' ability to defend themselves against multiple armed assailants, thus implying the executive branch's competence to protect us.

On the other hand, the same majority eliminates capital punishment, thus implying the incompetence of the judicial branch to arrive at accurate verdicts.

Perhaps now victims of multiple armed assailants can mount a class action lawsuit against the legislators who voted to give the advantage in firepower to criminals.

And maybe the cost to the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services of the taxpayer-funded free room and board for murderers ought to be published.
