Colorado Legislator – Ballpoint Pens Better Than Guns

By Breeanne Howe

The debate over gun rights has been a hot topic across the country of late, but in Colorado Democratic State Senator Jessie Ulibarri has taken the issue to a whole new level of insanity.  Like his fellow Democrats, Ulibarri is against carrying a gun as a method of protecting oneself against harm.  Late last month during a committee debate on the issue, Ulibarri told the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee that there are alternatives to guns for self-defense, like ballpoint pens.  As Ulibarri pointed out, when the gunman stops to reload (if you haven’t been shot already) it is the perfect time to attack your assailant with your pen.

From here we assume the legislative agenda will include age limits on the purchase of pens and the ban of all pens at airports.  We feel safer already…
