Before I say anything else, it’s important to giggle over the fact that as I write this, I checked my iGoogle page, and the following quote was at the bottom: Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of congress. But I repeat myself. (Mark Twain)
Now, it’s time for the “funny” part of the posting. Two news stories showed up that convince me that someone is trying to push anti-gun legislation. But all the stories really show, to me, is that it’s time for anti-stupid legislation. Either people need to get smarter, or they need to come up with better stories.
First, a man in San Antonio accidentally brought his gun to bed, rolled over, and shot his wife in the stomach. Uh-huh. Cause I always grab my gun off the nightstand when I’m reaching for a pillow.
But it’s okay because the sexes are equal. In College Station, a woman was trying to shoot a skunk in her backyard, and she accidentally missed the skunk and shot her husband. Yeah. Why would she be shooting a skunk? And isn’t the term “skunk” used in another way when it refers to people? Hmmm.
Anyway, I’m just saying, this is Texas. Don’t we have a saying about someone just needing killing (or shooting in this case)? Why not just come clean and admit that they were on purpose. It sounds a lot better than claiming it’s an accident.
