Only a politician could come up with this….

Virginia Delegate David Albo (the same guy who brought you abusive driver fees – the ones only imposed on VIRGINIA drivers) has pre-filed HB169, that will adds box cutters to the list of weapons you can’t carry concealed.

Only a politician could come up with this. I tell you, reading legislation is a lot like reading Dilbert, only scarier, because it’s real.

Imagine this. You go to Home Depot and buy some drywall, drywall tape, drywall mud, and box cutter. The cashier puts the small stuff in a bag and you leave the store. CRIMINAL!

You take your tool box to your brother-in-law’s house to help him with some handyman stuff. Box cutter in the box? CRIMINAL!

Heaven forbid you have one in the toolbox in your car and you’ve forgotten about it. CRIMINAL!

I’m surprised our friends in the US House hadn’t thought of it first.
