Massachusetts bans driving

Seems Deval Patrick has banned driving in the whole state before the snow has even started to accumulate significantly. Talk about a f**king nannycrat c*nt, hope he slips on some ice and knocks some sense into his skull -- western MA is supposed to get 8"-12"; just a normal storm for the area.

I was hoping you made that up. Apparently not:

Massachusetts governor bans driving ahead of winter storm Nemo | WashingtonExaminer.com

Can he even do that?

I don't know. Most people aren't hunters, trappers, or cops, and thus find guns less useful than cars on a day-to-day basis.

Do you have to turn every issue into a gun discussion?

Is he holding a gun to the public's head telling them not to drive?

Well, holding the Massachusetts State Pigs' guns, yeah. Apparently up to a $500 fine/1 yr in jail for violating. If the little Irishman slipped on some ice, he'd be doing the state a favor.

Then again, the state has a long history of putting buffoons into office. Ted the Swimmer Kennedy. Mittens Romney. The list goes on.

While the wiki page doesn't break down his complete racial makeup, I don't know how much Irish blood Deval has in him.

Driving an automobile is NOT a constitutionally guaranteed "right".

In fact it is a privilege which can be revoked. Ask anyone that got popped for a DUI with "DUI priors" on their jacket if you don't believe *ME*..
