There is an apparent parallel to the Iowa legislative efforts to loosen up who is allowed a handgun. The efforts in Minnesota to derail very important background checks has been noted elsewhere, while we do nothing to bring our data to the NCIS up to date, and as no funding is provided by our legislture to do so.
The joke at the end of this video, "Give a Handgun to a Schizophrenic Bill" that conservatives are supporting in Iowa could as easily apply in Minnesota. That was the characterization BY conservatives. Play the whole thing. Conservatives = BAD government, not smaller government, not fiscally responsible government. Thanks to MikeB's blog for the tip to this video.
