Kaine, you ignorant slut

With apologies to Lorne Michaels.

 

From a Governor Tim Kaine news release, in part.

Vetoes

 

Governor Kaine vetoed two bills having to do with carrying concealed weapons.

 

Senate Bill 436 (Vogel) would have allowed people to carry a concealed weapon in a car as long as it was in a locked compartment or container.

“I have the same concerns with this legislation today as when I vetoed a similar bill two years ago,” Governor Kaine said. “This measure runs contrary to existing state law regarding concealed weapon permits, allowing persons who have not completed a criminal background check, and who are untrained with a handgun, to possess a firearm in a concealed manner within a locked compartment in their automobiles.

 

“It also presents a danger to our law enforcement officers, who risk their lives for Virginians on a daily basis while patrolling our Commonwealth’s roads and highways. The objections of law enforcement to this measure are compelling.”

 

Senate Bill 476 (Hanger) would have allowed people to bring concealed weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol, under certain conditions.

 

“Allowing concealed weapons into restaurants and bars that serve alcohol puts the public, the employees, and our public safety officers at risk,” Governor Kaine said. “I take seriously the objections of law enforcement to this measure.”

 

Governor Kaine:

– Doesn’t have to stand reelection, and thinks that gives him reason to flaunt the wishes of the majority of Virginians and of the Virginia Senate.

– Has come out in support of Barack Obama, a notorious gun grabber, and has stated that you must actively work for the candidate you endorse.

– Made gun control a centerpiece of his legislative agenda for 2008, despite the fact the last two politicians in VA who have made gun control a “referendum” have been defeated.

– Claims to “take seriously the objections of law enforcement” when the only law-enforcement agency to speak against SB476 spoke “on behalf of the administration”.

 

He doesn’t care more for his state than his political aspirations, and he’s a lying sack of excrement. Perhaps he should put on a Jim Webb mask.

 

Now, I expect him to sign SB776, because everyone knows lawyers are so much better than others that they can mix guns and alcohol.  SB 776 will allow Commonwealth Attorneys and deputy Commonwealth Attorneys to carry concealed off duty, without a permit.  Not only can they conceal in restaurants that serve alcohol, but they can drink.

Governor, what’s that about GUNS and ALCOHOL?
