One Right at a Time

Delegate Mamye E. BaCote (D-95) has introduced a bill (HB1785) in the Virginia House of Delegates that would allow localities to ban possession of firearms in public libraries.

I guess this means she thinks citizens should be able to exercise their First Amendment rights (freedom of the press) or their Second Amendment rights (to keep and bear arms) — just not both at the same time.

UPDATE (1/23/05): This bill has been “passed by indefinitely,” that is, defeated in committee, by a vote of 18-2.
