More Scared Shurtleff: “Guns for me but not for thee!’

by Susan Olsen

Do as I say, not as I do!!!

In response to one of my Scared Shurtleff posts, a reader sent me an email.  In it, he writes “Recently Rep. Stephen Shurtleff, D, Merrick District 11, introduced  HB 113’.  He goes on to say “I find no comfort from Rep. Stephen Shurtleff’s self-centered approach to gun control, because he is exempt from his own bill.”

Ruh roh, you mean our overlords seek to exempt themselves from laws with which they plan to control the peasantry? My reader says ‘Yes’.

In his own resume he states [he was a] “Supervisory Deputy, United States Marshal, United States Department of Justice-United States Marshals Service, 1974-2000, retired” and that ‘His employment with the Marshals, and subsequent retirement, qualifies him to participate in:

The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA), a United States federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows two classes of persons—the “qualified law enforcement officer” and the “qualified retired law enforcement officer” — to carry a concealed firearm in any jurisdiction in the United States, regardless of any state or local law to the contrary…”

My reader writes: ‘Shurtleff is also employed as “Substitute Teacher, Merrimack School District, 2000-present. Does this mean he can carry “on the Job concealed” as provided by the LEOSA? Does he presently enjoy this immunity [from which] he wants to isolate the citizens of our great state and will he hold his position as a statist?’

  • Let me propose the Military Retirees Safety Act, whereby we have an additional class of persons who all trained and qualified in gun safety, and may reasonably be expected not to wantonly endanger others, THEREFORE we, too should be exempt from all gun restrictions.
    How’s THAT for a militia that supports the constitution and cannot be disarmed?
    I still say no citizen shall be disarmed, but anything that can increase the numbers of sensible people who can thumb their noses at restrictive ordinances, is a good idea.
