Alex's Outlook

Friday, September 12, 2003

A coalition of conservative Democrats and Missouri Republicans won three major victories for cultural conservatism this week. They passed a concealed-carry bill - albeit the most restrictive concealed-carry bill of any current state law - and also imposed new costs on women seeking abortions, both over the vetoes of Democrat Gov. Bob Holden. They even overrode a third Holden veto, keeping gun manufacturers from being liable for shootings by killers.

As a result, the gun industry in Missouri is better off. Missourians will be safer, and there will probably be fewer abortions too.
