Babes in Arms

12:25 PM -- Psychotic legislation alert. The New York Times reports from Arizona:

    Horrified by recent campus shootings, a state lawmaker here has come up with a proposal in keeping with the Taurus .22-caliber pistol tucked in her purse: Get more guns on campus.

    The lawmaker, State Senator Karen S. Johnson, has sponsored a bill, which the Senate Judiciary Committee approved last week, that would allow people with a concealed weapons permit — limited to those 21 and older here — to carry their firearms at public colleges and universities...

    She initially wanted her bill to cover all public schools, kindergarten and up, but other lawmakers convinced her it stood a better chance of passing if it were limited to higher education.

    “I feel like our kindergartners are sitting there like sitting ducks,” Ms. Johnson said last week...
Sitting duck-duck-goose, that'd be.

    ...she recently described herself, half-jokingly, she says, as a “right-wing wacko.”
Half-joking? With her half-wit, I guess.
