Newsday reports that New York’s new Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand (D), is removing two rifles from under her bed:
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) has moved the two rifles that she kept under the bed to protect her upstate New York home, her spokesman Matt Canter said Monday.
“Given that the location of the guns has been disclosed, they have been moved for security reasons,” Canter said.
They’re saying that now that people know where she keeps them, it’s a problem.
I don’t understand the problem.
If we had a female Senator in, say, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, or some other southern state, and if she kept her guns under her bed, she’d not only tell the reporter doing an interview, she’d have a sign up in the yard warning anyone who dared try unauthorized entry into the home.
Heck, there are eight shoulder-fired weapons (rifles and shotguns) and two hand-held weapons in my bedroom. Yes, they’re loaded.
I guess that means I can’t be a Senator from New York.
A friend of mine mentioned yesterday that he’s investing in gold.
He seems to think the whole world economy has only begun to go to hell in a handbasket. He thinks the worst is yet to come.
Because he thinks Obama will win the election.
And Obama might.
Yes, my friend is right: If Obama wins, things will only get worse.
And perhaps my friend has the right idea: invest in metals.
Only, I don’t think I’m going to invest in gold.
I’m thinking steel, brass, and lead.
