In a rootin' tootin' culturist, stereotypical column, Journal Editorial Page Editor Jill Blondin (which you can read here) begins her tale about Rep Hal Wick's bill to require every South Dakotan to purchase a gun. She had it right for a bit, in explaining that Wick's bill was nothing more than an attempt to demonstrate that ObamaCare's requirement that every citizen purchase health insurance is unconstitutional.
But then she digresses. Her kid is the only one in her class that does not have a gun in her home. Really? Then she goes on to say that Rep. David Lust, R-Rapid City, "indirectly acknowledged the itchy trigger fingers that are so common around here."
Itchy trigger fingers? Really? She admits she's no fan of guns and admits that she used to scatter peanuts for squirrels (which is against the law here.) She also used to take immobilized trantulas to the Desert Museum...Whoopee!
And, she closes by saying it's "charming" that there are plenty of "gunslingers" "in these parts" who "carry their arms with such pride and bravado."
I'm sorry, but give me a break.
