It's Not Working in Richmond, Either

The previous post about our nation's government being gummed up by one truculent senator from Kentucky today has its Virginia equivalent in Sen. Henry Marsh of Richmond who's end I approve of (bottling up gun bills), but whose means contributes to the kind of legislative lockout that simply stops everything. Here's the story.

Marsh has cobbled together a subcommittee of urban Democrats and one Republican in order to ditch some pro-gun legislation and keep it from getting to the floor of the Senate in much the same way that a few members of the House of Delegates can stop just about anything they want to stop (and that means everything worthwhile). Their singular goal is to kill gun legislation from one of the most focused efforts in recent memory to get every gun bill from every gun nut alive through and onto the desk of that short military governor of ours.

Point here is that the end doesn't justify the means if the means continues stuck government. And that's exactly what's happening.
