I note this development in Virginia with interest:
Virginia lawmakers on Monday rejected another gun control bill that was proposed by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam. The Senate Judiciary Committee rejected Northam’s bill that would make it a felony to “recklessly leave a loaded, unsecured firearm” in a way that endangers a minor.
“This bill will keep children safe from loaded, unsecured firearms. Like Gov. Northam’s other commonsense gun safety measures, it is something that everyone — including responsible gun owners — should support,” said Northam’s spokesman, Alena Yarmosky.
Of course, having that law in place would mean that assholes like this guy would get thrown in jail, yes?
Man found gun left by David Cameron’s bodyguard and the former PM’s passport in plane toilet
Of course, the “asshole” I’m referring to is not the guy who found the gun, but the so-called “bodyguard” who left the thing in the toilet. (And by the way, for “making a fuss”, the finder was almost tossed off the plane when it should have been the gormless bodyguard tossed out at 25,000 feet, as any fule kno.)
Makes me wonder, though: the flight was going from NYFC to London. I’m wondering what I would have done if I’d been on the flight and found a random Glock and Tony “Oily Heap of Shit” Blair’s passport in the bog when I went in.
Well, the second one’s easy: I’d have flushed Blair’s passport down the toilet, just for spite. The next dilemma is not so easy: would I have just kept the gun hidden in my backpack until the flight landed, then handed it in? With the passport gone, they’d never have found out who had the gun, or even if the Glock had been left in the bathroom. OR (fun thought) I could have unloaded and cleared the Glock, then flushed the gun and the mag as well as the passport? Cat, meet pigeons.

Oh, and bravo to the VA Senate. Keep it up.
