Washington Post on Interstate Recognition of CHP

The Washington Post opines this morning on the Thune-Vitter Amendment to the defense department authorization bill. Surprise, surprise, they oppose it.

Conservatives usually argue against the federal government telling states what they can and can't do. If approved, the Thune amendment would trample all over the rights of states and cities to enforce reasonable restrictions on gun ownership. There are already enough guns on America's streets. A vote for Mr. Thune's bill would make them that much more dangerous.

I find it particularly amusing that when it suits the Post for the federal government to tell the states what to do, the Post has no problem with it. But when it comes to law abiding citizens carrying firearms - some of the most law abiding citizens in the country I might add - the Post can't believe the government would dare tell the states what to do.
