Legislatures too lazy or stupid to up date?

 

"shooting competitions at the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games and sanctioned test events leading up to the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games"

 

It's not like if it stayed on the books forever that it would do any harm, although it does highlight that international visitors would have had more firearm rights than residents.

In regard to HB3136, Representative Hammond comments that she'll be glad when they can stop counting the number of times they say "horse semen".

 

Representative Wheeler thanks the sponsor for "cleaning up the horse semen on the floor tonight".

 

So you made me look.

 

HB3136 started life as "Student Loan Debt Relief," but got amended into an update to the "Horse Racing Act of 1975." Stepping outside myself, since I have no idea if I would have supported or opposed the original bill, if I were to imagine I was the original author of a bill meant to address student loan debt, I think I'd find some small measure of justice in forcing the people who trashed it into becoming a bill that deals with horse semen to use the phrase "horse semen" authoritatively in every sentence. I'm confident every legislator in Springfield is well-acquainted with horse semen. The truth of it might as well be made obvious in the official record.

Not firearm related, but the Senate just concurred with House Amendments to SB1169, with the effect of adding COVID-19 provisions to the Healthcare Right of Conscience Act.  For details, see the "Interesting: Against State Law to require Vax??" thread elsewhere.

 

Posting this here because it's an example of our government chipping away at rights, even if it's not 2A-specific.
