Calipornia: Gun Shows Are Naughty
but Smut Shows Are Nice
Out on the Left Coast, Democrat foes of the Second Amendment
want to ban gun shows from a taxpayer-owned property but keep allowing
a porn expo.
"Foreplay got the nod over gunplay Wednesday by state
senators deciding what types of shows to allow at the Cow Palace,"
the San Francisco Chronicle reported today.
California Sen. Jackie Speier is having a cow over
firearms shows at the Cow Palace in suburban Daly City.
Democrats defeated attempts by Republicans to amend Speier's
bill to ban the annual Exotic Erotic Ball as well.
Exotic Erotic Ball, which touts itself as "the world's
wildest and sexiest party," says in advertising for "entertainers":
"Can you tie yourself into a pretzel? Have you ever spent a major
holiday being impaled? Did you ever run off to join the circus and get
Sen. Bill Morrow, a Republican from San Diego County,
reminded his colleagues, "You are voting to keep live sex acts in
a state facility going on."
Senate President Pro Tem John Burton of San Francisco
shot back, "I've never heard of any kids on a playground killed by
a live sex act."
However, GOP Sen. Dennis Hollingsworth of Riverside
County noted that two people had died at a rave at the Cow Palace in January.
He asked Speier whether any gun show there had ever caused a death.
"Are we concerned about rave parties at the Cow Palace?
No, we're not," Hollingsworth said. "This is an ideological
battle, using the power of the state to take away the rights of people
doing something completely legal."
In the end, La-La Land's Senate Democrats got their way
and passed Speier's bill. If the Assembly approves it, Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger must decide whether to sign or veto it.
