I know you're all tired of gloom-and-doom me, so here's some good news!
The House passed a bill yesterday that will allow gun owners to carry concealed, loaded guns into national parks. It passed 279-147, with the support of the Republicans (of course), and some Democrats.
The only bad thing? It was added as some twisted sort of pork into the credit card bill.
Beef to get unwilling senators to vote 'aye'.
So, there's some good news, and a little bit of doom-gloom at the end, just to show that I'm still here. ;)
