In this case, we have the governor of Washinton refusing to sign marksmanship awards–something every other governor in the country does–because the event was registered with the NRA.
Governor Inslee is doing something unbelievably petty.
Back in 1903, there was a group that started in our nation called the Civilian Marksmanship Program. They would get together and have shooting competitions. It was for a while under the auspices of the Department of Defense. Here in Washington, they have a couple of groups that go and compete in marksmanship — the Washington State Rifle and Pistol Association, and the Washington State Police Pistol Association.
This organization always holds an annual banquet, where the top shooters — both civilians and law enforcement officers — are given certificates signed by the governor. Most states do this every year. It’s known as the Governor’s 20.
“The Governor’s 20 has been around for years — it’s a competition of law enforcement officers [who] are competing for skills,” Jane Milhans of the Washington State Rifle and Pistol Association told me.
This year, however, Governor Inslee’s office sent this letter ahead of the banquet.
“The certificates that were signed last May will be the final certificates signed by the governor … Governor Inslee is no longer able to support any program affiliated with the National Rifle Association (NRA), due to the organization’s obstructive efforts to undermine common sense gun safety measures, including those that enjoy broad public support. We understand competitors will be disappointed by this decision; however, the Governor [sic] believes constructive conversations and meaningful action around gun safety are necessary to better protect our families and communities.”
Realy class move there Governor Inslee
This woman is as stupid as a rock. OK, OK, the rock likely has her by a few IQ points. As the Daily caller notes, Hirono really wants our justice system to go away
Hirono was responding to an editorial, published in the Wall Street Journal, which suggested that the situation regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford was damaging the U.S. justice system.
Tapper quoted the piece as saying, “Sexual allegations should be accepted as true merely by having been made. The accuser is presumably telling the truth because the accuser is a woman. This turns American justice and due process upside down.” He then turned the question to Hirono: “What’s your response?”
The Hawaiian Senator responded by saying that if the WSJ actually cared about due process, they would be pushing for an investigation. “For The Wall Street Journal to come out and talk to me about due process or all the women out there that I’m hearing about that never came forward,” she said, “it is really important, not only for these survivors to be heard, but if their stories are as credible as Dr. Ford’s story is, they need to be believed.”
See, just believe any woman that accuses any man, especially a Conservative man, of anything.
She blamed his “ideological agenda,” saying that to her he was not credible because she viewed his denial in the context of the way he handles cases.
“This is a person that will be sitting on our Supreme Court, making decisions that will impact women’s reproductive choice,” she said. “He very much is against women’s reproductive choice.”
Hirono is a great example of how intellectually bankrupt the left is. She wants people to be believed, or not believes based solely on their ideological beliefs it seems. This, of course is what social justice is all about. Not facts, or evidence, no guilt, culpability, and membership in an assigned “victim” group or “oppressor” group determines guilt, punishment, etc.
Senator Hirono, and those like her should frighten everyone who believes that innocence must be assumed until guilt is proved.
