"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

Yeah, but he’s a Canyon County commissioner

Why does this seem just, simply, natural? From an update on the Idaho Statesman web site:

“Canyon County Commissioner Dave Ferdinand thought he had prepped his bags for boarding an airplane Thursday, but he forgot one big thing – a loaded gun, county spokeswoman Angie Sillonis said. Ferdinand was headed to Washington, D.C., for a National Association of Counties conference when an airport X-ray discovered the weapon in a carry-on bag and alerted police. He was cited with a misdemeanor, then released to fly to D.C., said Sillonis, who talked to Ferdinand Friday afternoon.”

Wonder what they’d do if you’re not a county commissioner . . .
