For me, not thee

I'd like you to meet Donne Trotter.

Senator Trotter was arrested for attempting to carry a firearm onto a plane.  A class 4 felony.  That generally sucks.  What makes it worse is that Mr. Trotter is a democratic senator from Illinois that decided to vote against a bill that would allow his constituents to carry a concealed handgun.

To quote The Grinch (Jim Carrey's version)

The audacity.  The unmitigated gaul.

It never ceases to amaze me the hypocrisy of this crowd.  Totally against guns except for themselves or their armed bodyguards.

P.S. Please disregard the terminology in the article.  It was written by a "journalist" after all.


  1. It barely got a peep in the Illinois media.

    Off topic but I wanted to drop you a note to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

    A pint will be raised in your honor tonight.

    1. Thanks so much, Brigid. The same to yours and we are about to raise pints as we fill the kids' stockings. I will raise one for you as well.
