News, but not the serious kind

This gunman goes into a bar, see…

I’m not sure when our state lawmakers  began competing to pass the most wacky weapons laws,  but it’s getting pretty hard to keep up with them.

To recap, in recent days we’ve seen both Utah and Arizona vote to create official state firearms. Meanwhile, lawmakers in Maine voted to legalize switchblade knives, but only for one-armed residents.

That brings us to Ohio, where the house of representatives has just approved laws that would give people more rights to carry concealed weapons, including one that allows folks to carry guns into  bars.

Jeez, I hardly know where to begin. My feeling is, if you’re going into a bar where you think you might need a gun, maybe you should upgrade to a nicer bar. Or else just drink at work, like everybody else.
