Who speaks the truth so plainly.
As an aside, if it's really gonna be a rant it could use a bit more vitriol and whiny angst - like what QQ brings here - but that's just being picky.
As divisive as the 'gun' topic is I bring this up for one reason - to comment on the process of legislating behavior and the inevitable unintended consequences.
I find it richly ironic that the folks who got in a tizzy over the open carry movement in California have directly influenced this decision against their interests by their work successfully banning open carry here.
For the most part I think legislating specific behavior is the wrong answer as it generally addresses the experience of one side and not the actual root cause of the behavior, or needs of the 'other' side. When possible I think addressing the cause of a behavior will lead to people to voluntarily choose to make different choices that are more natural and will avoid the inevitable loop holes.

The only negative is we don't get to open Levi's stadium week one but I'm sure they'd give us prime time week two.
If you're ready to move on here's something a little fun. Star Wars plus the NFL team logos!
