An official who survived a shooting is urging Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to veto a bill to generally allow guns in public buildings without certain security features.

Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox cites the 1997 shooting in which she was wounded by a man in a county building. Brewer also was a supervisor at the time.

Mary Rose Wilcox survived being shot in the butt by Larry Naman, who was homeless at the time, for illegally voting for the funds for Bank One Ballpark. Wilcox has never been held accountable for her crimes, other than the wound that Naman inflicted.

Naman spent 12 years in jail.

Failure to prosecute Wilcox, who was indicted on numerous felony counts by two grand juries, was a political decision by acting Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley, a long-time political ally of Wilcox, not lack of evidence.

Let me see if I understand this chain of "logic".

This person was shot while she was in a government building where it was illegal to bring a gun?

And so we are supposed to think that making it legal to carry a gun in such a building is somehow going to make it possible for people to shoot government officials, whereas it was not possible before?

Have I understood that correctly?

Of course all violent offenders will be up for obeying a ban. You just can’t cure stupid or democrat. Redundancy is our friend.

And Romley was supposedly a Republican.

You have. I understand the supposed “chain of logic” that way, too. But I still don’t understand the logic of the “logic”. Duh on us.

“Have I understood that correctly?”

Yes, rational thought and logic are often absent in the arguments of those in the “ban the guns” crowd. Ms Wilcox being no exception.

Let me put forward a more convincing chain of logic:

According to the referenced link:

http://www.examiner.com/crime-in-phoenix/larry-naman-s-now-a-free-man-wilcox-is-still-a-county-supervisor

Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox is a corrupt politician who incurred hundreds of millions of dollars of debt for the people of Maricopa county, expressly against their will. Her cronies protected her from prosecution, so the only retribution that she received was being wounded by a man who had absolutely no criminal record. He subsequently spent 12 years in jail.

Mary Rose Wilcox is now concerned that victims of her criminality, with absolutely no criminal record of their own, might be able to get near to her while they are armed. She is doing the most she can, aided by her associates in the MSM(who also made millions in the stadium deal), to try to disarm her victims, but has repeatedly been thwarted by the Constitutions of the the United States and the State of Arizona.

Is that logic a little clearer?
