Here’s the headline:
…and my first thought was: if a judge can’t be trusted with a gun on board a plane, then who can?
But then commonsense kicked in and my secondary thought was: fuck ’em. I’m sick of all these carve-outs and special treatments for people like this. If I can’t carry a gun on a plane, then nobody should (excepting U.S. Marshals acting as “sky marshals”, perhaps).
But it gets worse. From the story:
One of the latest gun owners to find herself in this embarrassing and potentially pricey situation is Bexar County Court Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez, who recently realized the hard way that she had left one of her pistols in her carry-on bag as she was going through security at the San Antonio airport on her way to a conference in Miami.
At which point my antennae started to twitch a little. Bexar (pronounced “bear”) county is San Antonio (city motto: “Like Austin, but with less class”), so no doubt “Speedy” Gonzales is one of those Children of Soros judges… and then the next paragraph confirmed it:
Gonzalez says police allowed her wife to come pick up the gun.
Ah, fuck. I apologize in advance, but here’s a pic of Speedy:
…complete with rainbow LGBTOSTFU flag, no less.
And another story about her, on that same topic:
A lesbian judge in Texas has been sanctioned for displaying a rainbow flag in her courtroom, after a lawyer complained that it was a “symbol of sexuality” and comparable to a swastika.
Bexar County Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez is appealing a decision by the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct, which told her in a private sanction that the rainbow flag — which flew alongside the U.S. flag and Texas state flag — was a breach of impartiality rules, Texas Lawyer reports.
Gonzalez made history in 2018 by becoming the first openly gay judge to be elected in Bexar County, and argued that the flag represented equality in her courtroom.
Listen, you rug-munching cow: by definition, every courtroom in the United States represents equality before the law, and you shouldn’t have to wave your silly little flag to “prove” it.
I need to stop now before that 300+ blood pressure thing kicks in.
Range time? I think so.
