Some amusing news from Virginia this morning. A republican in the state introduced a new gun control bill. This is one of those times that may make you clap and snort in laughter. The new law would restrict the governor’s police security detail to from using any firearm not legal for regular citizens. No more of the “good for me but not for thee” i this would go through. Which it won’t because His Highness is above you and needs protection from the unwashed masses.
