In other words, "Find a way to pretend it didn't really happen so we don't have to enforce this against him."
Which, now that I think about it, opens up a defense for anyone these clowns DO charge with this.
"This triggers me" is the new "my dog ate my homework."
Sounds good to me.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sparked controversy Friday evening after suggesting at a campaign rally in Miami that the Secret Service detail that protects Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton be disarmed.
“She wants to destroy your Second Amendment,” Trump said. “I think what we should do is she goes around with armed bodyguards, like you have never seen before. I think that her bodyguards should disarm, right? Right? Think they should disarm. Immediately, what do you think?”
So, Missouri legislature overrode the veto by the Governor, and they've become a Constitutional-carry state. And the New York Slimes lies about it; anyone surprised?
Just to pick one of the lies,
Mr. Nixon, a Democrat, vetoed the measure in June, saying it would allow individuals with a criminal record to legally carry a concealed firearm even though they had been, or would have been, denied a permit under the old law’s background check.Which means he lied, since anyone with a felony record, or a conviction that could have resulted in a sentence exceeding one year (regardless of what sentence was actually handed down), or anyone under a domestic violence restraining order or found guilty of a domestic violence charge is - by Federal law - prohibited from possessing a firearm. Period. Doesn't matter how they carry it. So if their criminal record would have prevented them having a permit, it should prevent them from having a FIREARM.
