I could do this every week the Louisiana Lege is in session but this is malakatudinous even for them. Some bozo namedRep. Henry Burns sponsored a bill allowing guns in places of worship if the pastor, priest, rabbi, mullah or wiccan officiant approves. There’s no evidence that anyone affected, or even the NRA, were clamoring for this measure but Mr. Burns wants them to feel safe and the only way to feel safe in the Deep South is to have armed guards.
This is not theonly foolish thing the lege had taken up recently but it’s an excellent example of pure malakatude; especially since the bill passed 74-18. It’s likely to be signed into law by Governor PBJ despite the lack of demand for such a measure. Here’s my favorite quote in support of the bill:
“This bill is very permissive,” said Rep. Ernest Wooton, R-Belle
Chasse, a backer of the bill. “I want to see in the Bible where it says
you can’t bring a gun to church.”
I bet it’s not in there either Ernest. I don’t think there were pistols back then; either that or Mark, Luke and that lot were anti-gun and thereby soft on crime. I don’t think Moses or Jesus packed a rod for that matter. Damn prince of peace…
