There's A Gun Totin' Mama In The House!

The Associated Press is reporting (gasp!) that Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers owned ... a GUN! She owned a gun! A .45-caliber revolver! Oh, the humanity! Can you just imagine something like this?

AUSTIN, Texas – Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, who once owned a .45-caliber revolver, is not licensed to carry a concealed handgun in Texas. State officials refused Monday to reveal whether she has ever been licensed.

Miers' brother gave her the Smith & Wesson handgun when he was worried about her living alone in Dallas. Judge Nathan Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court, a longtime friend of Miers', has said she kept the gun for a long time.

A person in Texas can own a gun without a concealed handgun license. Texas is one of 43 states that allow concealed weapons, and more than 230,000 residents are registered under the law.

A person who may end up as one of the justices of the United States Supreme Court actually owned a gun! You know, one of those Items Of War that go out, on their own, and kill people.

Geez, what's next? Do we read a story about how Harriet Miers once expressed a personal opinion in a public forum? Could there be a newspaper article describing how she worshiped at a church of her choosing? Are these henious behaviors guaranteed in the Constitition (the Bill Clinton edition)?
