Why I stay a Democrat

Because of stuff like this:

"The Senate voted Wednesday to permit passengers on the Amtrak passenger railroad to transport handguns in their checked baggage. . . . "Americans should not have their Second Amendment rights restricted for any reason, particularly if they choose to travel on America's federally subsidized rail line," said Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., who made the proposal. Wicker's amendment would deny the railroad its $1.6 billion taxpayer subsidy unless it changes the gun policy."

Why do people need guns in their baggage on passenger trains?

So they can go on hunting trips by train. You can bring dead animal carcasses on return Amtrak trips, right? :p
