|Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant is a little dazed and confused about the fate of the Soviet Union.|
"If they want a 30-round clip, they're going to get it out of Brazil or the Soviet Union," Bryant said according to the Huffington Post. "It's going to go on the black market. Self-protecting citizens wouldn't have that right, but criminals will."
Phil, anyone who lives in your state is fully aware that you are hellbent on the idea that your citizens should live like it's 1950 (or 1850 by some considerations). However, the current year is in fact 2013, and the Soviet Union has not existed since 1991. No word yet on where criminals might go to acquire a time machine.
Another day, another embarrassment from Phil Bryant for the people of Mississippi. It's quite amazing that Bryant was even so capable of topping his own stupidity just hours after he sent out a letter urging the state legislature to bypass the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution and to "make any unconstitutional order by the President illegal to enforce in Mississippi by state or local law enforcement." Unconstitutional in this particular instance means "anything Phil doesn't like."
Bryant says he opposes bans on high-capacity magazines because, "When it's for self protection, you need as much firepower as needed to protect your family."
Well, thanks for clearing that up for us, Phil.
