Guns Not Gays


Senator Gerry Sweet (R-Meridian) clearly views homosexuality as a major threat to the citizens of Idaho. Guns, on the other hand, he seems to take a more relaxed attitude toward.

A recent bill sponsored by gun advocate Sweet and other lawmakers would allow people to carry concealed weapons--including loaded handguns--in their vehicles, even if they don't possess concealed weapons permits.

Not surprisingly, state law enforcement agents--who already risk their lives every time they pull a car over--oppose the proposed bill.
