I really should write up a post on Jack Markell, who won Delaware's Democratic Primary for Governor and will probably be our next governor, I just haven't been in the mood to bang out a good, detailed post. I hope I'm wrong about Markell's chances, but Republican Bill Lee didn't really want to run and was MIA for most of his primary. I'd be shocked if he beat Markell in the general election.

Anyway, expect to see a detailed post about Markell's positions as noted in his press release. in the next few days. I've been wanting to write about this for a while and have been putting it off. It's full of typical liberal gun control proposals with a 4th Amendment workaround thrown in for good measure. Funny how anti-gun Democrats lose all respect for the 4th Amendment the moment the word "guns" is mentioned.

I can't say I'm surprised at Markell's regurgitation of failed policies, given that he's been riding Obama's "change" coattails his entire campaign. His slogan was "change" and he even has a nifty little blueprint book just like Obama. How cute.

Is it just me, or does he actually address the criminal fringe?

Are you referring to the section on getting repeat offenders off the streets?

If so then yes, in the entire press release I linked to that's the one thing I'm OK with since it focuses on those committing the crimes instead of an inanimate object.

Yes, I was referring to that section. I thought I went into the 4th dimension for a moment cause a Candidate actually mentioned gun control themes along with actual thoughts of curbing crime. Not just the typical BS.

But what about the rest of the Delaware Gov? If he happened to get in, wouldn't he still have to deal with the State Legislature?

Of course he would, just like Obama would still have to deal with Congress if elected. That said, knowing that he'd need help to violate my rights doesn't exactly give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

By the way, why the gun control at all? Why not just find and lock up the criminals? Guns or no guns if the criminals are in jail they can't be out committing crimes.

I don't appreciate having my rights violated because a violent subset of Wilmington's population can't play nice.
