Supporter of 2nd Amendment has a but

"I support the 2nd Amendment, but..." is a line that most politicians use just before the legislation comes along that would inhibit that right.
Rep. Bob Kressig, D-Cedar Falls, is the ranking member of the House Public Safety Committee, which dealt with a lot of the gun legislation. He said he's in favor of Second Amendment rights, but also thought the state needs to "be smart" about how the permits are issued.
His idea of "smart"?
"I think there are some opportunities for improvement in the training," Kressig said.
In other words, more state involvement because there have been a rash of incidents around the state involving permit holders that need to be reigned in because of the irresponsible or illegal behavior.

You read about these incidents in the papers, right?

Anyone that makes that statement is a lying sack of $hit. You support the 2nd Amendment, there are no buts. It's a all or nothing proposition. I hope the voters give this turd his papers next election.
