I Voted for WHAT?

It'll never happen until it happens to you:

(Ohio State Rep. Michael) DeBose twice voted against a measure to allow Ohioans to carry concealed weapons. It became law in 2004. DeBose voted his conscience. He feared that CCW permits would lead to a massive influx of new guns in the streets and a jump in gun violence. He feared that Cleveland would become the O.K. Corral, patrolled by legions of freshly minted permit holders.

"I was wrong," he said Friday. "I'm going to get a permit and so is my wife.

They say the definition of a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. DeBose's CCW application will bear some witness to that notion.

Something to keep in mind next time some insulated elected official tries to shovel you some shit about knowing better than you do.
