MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Skewers Idaho's Gun Laws
Last night, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow used her coveted A-block to run a story on Idaho Rep. Mark Patterson. What began as simply his story became a segment on guns and the ridiculous law in Idaho that allows this man to keep his conceal carry permit despite having lied not once, but twice on an application for that very permit about his background that includes a withheld judgment of assault with intent to rape. Once again, an Idaho Republican politician became fodder for someone with the good sense to see that there's something wrong with what's happening in Idaho.
To quote Rachel Maddow and to echo her sentiment: "I cannot believe this is who we are right now."
