From the Casper Star-Tribune:
Now let's play Good Politician, Bad Politician.
If the bill passes, Wyoming would become only the third state in the nation, after Vermont and Alaska, to allow conceal-carry without a permit.
Under House Bill 113, the only people not allowed to carry concealed weapons in the state would be people under the age of 21, convicted felons, those convicted of drug-related charges, alcoholics, those with physical disabilities that impair their ability to handle firearms, and people who have lived in the state less than six months.
Rep. Lorraine Quarberg, the Thermopolis Republican sponsoring the bill, said the legislation is meant simply to spell out rights that are already guaranteed under the Wyoming Constitution and the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
"I just believe people have the right to protect themselves and defend themselves," Quarberg said. "And I want to make sure that we put it in statute and people know they can do it."
So, Petey, since you're a juvenile who lacks the basic human capacity for self-control, the rest of us are likewise utterly lacking in discipline and responsibility? Do you also have issues with road rage, when you're in control of a 3000 pound weapon of mass destruction?
Rep. Pete Jorgensen, D-Jackson, went further, saying that loosening gun control regulations, except for hunting, would be dangerous to everyone.
"I've been in situations in other countries working where I'm glad I didn't have a gun," said Jorgensen, who served overseas in the U.S. Army. "I've not sure I would've controlled myself."
Either way, this bill should pass, and will prove exemplary to the rest of the nation.

Submitted for your approval is my very own personal, beloved Ford Earthfucker, fondly dubbed the War Machine.
11 mpg out of an old V8 pushrod engine, and 4x4 to get me back where the hippies don't want me to be.
Cry, granolas, cry.

And sometimes a cover blows the doors clean off the original. This is unquestionably the case with Seether's cover of "Careless Whisper."
Sorry there's no actual video this week, this is the best I could find. Seriously, I don't think I've heard Seether do anything I don't like, and this one I happen to love.
