Don’t you people have anything better to do?

I received the following in email today.  Apparently the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands has a little time on his hands as his constituents prepare for the arrival of Auntie Irma later this week.

 

NRA Condemns U.S. Virgin Island Firearm Confiscation Plan

NRA Prepared to Engage Legal System to Halt Unconstitutional Order

Fairfax, Va.—The National Rifle Association on Tuesday announced its strong opposition to the order signed by U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp allowing the government to seize personal firearms and ammunition ahead of Hurricane Irma. The NRA is prepared to engage the legal system to halt the unconstitutional order.”People need the ability to protect themselves during times of natural disaster,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action. “This dangerous order violates the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens and puts their lives at risk.”

After Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin instituted a similar order and began confiscating legally owned and possessed firearms. The NRA intervened in federal court and was able to halt the confiscations and obtain an order requiring the return of the seized firearms. The organization then backed federal legislation to prohibit the confiscation of legal firearms from law-abiding citizens during states of emergency. In 2006, President George W. Bush signed this legislation into law.

“When 911 is non-existent and law enforcement personnel are overwhelmed with search-and-rescue missions and other emergency duties, law-abiding American citizens must be able to protect their families and loved ones. The NRA is prepared to  pursue legal action to halt Gov. Mapp’s dangerous and unconstitutional order,” concluded Cox.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.

Pro Tip on Parenting

Ladies, if you have a court order that requires you to administer a breathalyzer to your ex before you leave your toddler alone with him, you’ve made some bad life choices.  If you administer said breathalyzer to your ex, and he blows a .18 (legally drunk to drive is .08 in Kentucky), and you still leave your offspring with him, you just made another bad life choice.

Guys, if your ex is required to breathalyze you before you are allowed to take custody of your child, you haven’t made bad life choices, you have a problem, you are a problem, and you need to change your life, paco tiempo.  If you blow a .18 when she brings the sprog over for a visit, then you shouldn’t let her leave you alone with the kid.  If your kid is found wandering the neighborhood at 10 PM, you pass out so soundly that the neighbors and police cannot awaken you, and you blow a .290 at the jail, then you win the DaddyBear Memorial Bad Parent Award for 2014.  Congratulations.

Kids, if your parents act like this, you have my sympathy.  Good luck, and God bless.

Of Course He Is

Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movie series, has announced that he is starting a career as a rap ‘artist’.  Apparently his acting career, including a leading role in an upcoming unnecessary remake of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” isn’t enough to fill his calendar or that hole in his heart where his soul used to be.

Just what the world needs, another former child star hack actor who decides to branch out into ‘music’ so that he will feel fulfilled.  He’s apparently going to do some Eurotrash hip-hop tracks.  I kind of hope he goes full gangsta rapper so I can watch the ghosts of Biggee and Tupac rip him limb from limb.  Where do I sign up for the newsletter?
I look forward to Mr. Felton’s imminent arrest and/or drug rehab.  I also look forward to whipping the bejeezus out of the first kid who crosses my path reciting the latest hit single/seizure inducer from M.C. Malfoy.
