Schedule your rage accordingly

“Anger management,” if you ask me, is at just about the same level of pretentious donkey dust as “search-engine optimization,” and one should be very suspicious when encountering a recommendation for either.

And that goes double if it comes from a legislator:

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10 years.

“This is not about guns,” Gibson said. “This is about ammunition and not only for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law enforcement.”

This, buoys and gulls, is why Florida has its own Fark tag.

I’ll take this seriously when it comes with a rider that requires “law enforcement” to take the same silly classes, and not one second before.

    I don’t remember where, but someone suggested that politicians be given an I.Q. test before they’re allowed to serve.

    Me, I prefer a written Constitutional exam. That should weed out about 90% of current politicians.

    “Gun control” means hitting your target. “Anger management” means choosing the most deserving target.
