This Shit Never Ends

Here's another stellar example of what passes for rational thought up on Beacon Hill these days.

House votes to allow sale of syringes

Yes, the same legislative body that would have you believe there's no legitimate use for a handgun, even in the hands of the most law-abiding citizens, just voted to legalize the sale of hypodermic needles to known lawbreakers - in an effort to "save lives".

Now, we could debate the legalization of drugs until the proverbial cows come home, but off the top of my head, I can only think of two groups of people that will benefit by passage of this bill: people who use heroin and other illegal intravenous drugs, and people who would be inclined to use a hypodermic needle as a weapon in the commission of a crime.

So, if you're an illegal alien who wants to use a hypodermic needle to rob someone - in between your criminology classes at U. Mass. - you're in luck. And, for your convenience, the state will continue to work diligently to ensure you will have a fresh crop of defenseless victims to choose from.
