Arm the felons - I had to check the map this morning. Am I still living in Massachusetts. Check out this story in the Boston Globe: House votes to loosen gun laws. The state legislature who must be smoking some pretty good ganja. Time to look at how your rep voted and drop him or her a little note, no? Perhaps you also would like to check with your state senator and make sure he's not on crack.
Currently, anyone convicted of a felony or violent misdemeanor, including child rape and breaking and entering at night, is barred from buying a gun. But the House bill would eliminate the lifetime ban. It keeps the ban in place for domestic violence offenders.
To quote Will Ferrell as Jacobim Mugatu in Zoolander - "Am I on crazy pills?"
