Not so fast my friend

The Guns in trunks bill seems to be one the media is dead set on highlighting this year. One thing I can assure you is that if it comes up, government owned parking lots (like the ones on college campuses) will be a part of the package if I can help it. It would be hypocritical for the legislature to insist on  what private property owners have to allow on their property but then exempt themselves to the same standards.

I have often said one of the main tenants of conservatism is a limiting of government restrictions on the private individual and allowing more freedom to the individual when having to deal  with government. To say we are going to hold the private property owner to a higher standard then we hold ourselves is hypocritical and contrary to conservative philosophy.

  1. Stacey, I know that your feelings on this issue are very strong. I don't really have a dog in this fight, except that I do not want you to end up like Deb Maggart did.

    Your political career is much more important to you, in the long run, than this one issue.

    Also, do you want to go up against the governor on this issue...I'm just sayin...

    It's done all the time; for example the Stormwater Regs apply to Private Property but exempts entities like governments and utilities
