Permit to murder

Hurray for Gov. Gary Herbert. He vetoed HB76, which would have allowed anyone to carry concealed a weapon on their person without a permit. I feel so much safer.

Now that the crazies understand that they can't hide a gun in their pocket while on their way to doing a crime, they'll probably just stay home and watch TV. What a relief!

Let's insist that next year's Legislature pass laws requiring a person who wants to commit murder, robbery or assault, to first obtain a permit. No exceptions. Most certainly, crime will plummet to all-time lows. So easy. So wonderful.

So utterly ridiculous!
