make me physically sick, but then again I should have learned not to underestimate the Missouri state government a long time ago.

Background: the Missouri House came up with a bill, if passed, would have nullified all federal laws regarding gun ownership. I'm not exaggerating. You can read about it here and here.

Objectively speaking, this law is just fucking stupid. There's no other way to describe it. Personally speaking, I fucking hate guns on principle, and the idea of Missouri essentially becoming a Wild West of gun-nuts makes me sick to my stomach.

Our governor vetoed the bill, and wouldn't you know it, the legislature tried to override it by majority vote. Fortunately, the override ultimately failed last night (!) because the state senate couldn't reach majority on the matter.

I really hate this state. I want to leave so badly. Can we like make a Kickstarter for me and my girlfriend so we have enough money to move somewhere more civilized like Oregon, Washington or California?
