SMALL PIECE RE: MISSOURI SENATE RACE

MISSOURI LEGISLATURE OVERRIDES DEMOCRATIC GOV'S VETO OF GUNS ANYWHERE, ANY TIME, FOR ANYONE WITH NO PESKY GOVERNMENT RULES

In a post a couple of days ago, I reviewed the Missouri state legislature's (Republican controlled, natch!) latest foray into "personal responsibility and individual initiative," one-half of the Republican/Conservative/Freedom Caucus/Te Bagger thirty year old public policy initiative, the other half being "cutting taxes creates jobs."    LOGICAL END STATE   As I noted, the Missouri state legislature has apparently lost it's collective mind or each Republican legislator has been promised an endless supply of Koch Brothers campaign money for their re-elections.  (If you can think of some other, more rational motivation, please let me know.)

The upshot of the Missouri's "guns for everybody regardless of mental stability, previous convictions for violent crimes,  guns available from anywhere, at anytime without pesky 'gubment regulations like licensing, paperwork, background checks or limits on the number of AR-15's anyone can purchase each day" - well, I'm at a loss here.  Upshot?  Hmmmmm........  Maybe the upshot of the legislature's actions will be a marked decrease in the population of Missouri, which I suppose, would have the overall benefit of reducing - slightly - the number of crazy Trump supporters in the nation.

Missouri, like many other states in the union, is in the midst of a race to elect Senators to the United States Senate.  This particular race pits incumbent Republican, crazy Roy Blunt, against Democratic challenger, rational Jason Kander against each other.  Now, Senator Blunt has roundly criticized Kander for being "a gun control nut" like Barak Obama who all Missourians know is going to confiscate every single weapon in the state before he leaves office.  (This, by the way, is the prime impetus for the "Any One, Any Where, Any Time, Any Amount" gun legislation.)  
But in today's Daily Kos is Jason Kander's brilliant response to Blunt's stupidity:   


Wrote Daily Kos' Jeff Singer:
(MO-Sen) This ad from Missouri Democrat Jason Kander is one of the best we've ever seen.  The NRA recently launched an ad portraying Missouri Democratic Senate candidate Jason Kander as weak on gun rights, which is usually an effective argument in conservative states like this. But Kander’s must-see response commercial is one for the books.

Nothing More To Say!!!
