    I wouldn’t trust her… she’s WAY too angry. Looks like she needs an evaluation… scary that she’s making the rules for the state to live by with her mental disorder.

      Claw hammers and circular saws require skill and attention as well but, being sexist and agest for the moment, are both tools you don’t want grandma wielding without proper training and enough muscle mass to operate safely.

      The flaw in her logic is placing herself at the center of the argument and then using herself as the measuring stick. I imagine she makes all kinds of legally binding decisions about things she has no knowledge of nor any experience with. So playing the I’m-a-dope card on guns is disingenuous.

        Who elects these people?

        1. avatar NineShooter says:

          It doesn’t happen in a vacuum. I don’t remember for sure, but this may have been the “better” (or least-worst?) choice in the last election. Unlikely, but possible.

        2. avatar Muzzle Device says:

          She was a Regional Trust Manager for Wells Fargo. Well now, doesn’t that just say it all. Sounds like a bank position created for a Monty Python skit.

        3. avatar Bulldozer says:

          Fargo; it’s our one liberal enclave. This stupid bitch couldn’t get elected dogcatcher anywhere else in the state.

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        No, that’s the ‘active b!tch face’, one step beyond the ‘resting b!tch face’…

      2. avatar PATRON49IFT says:

        What a fugly mug on that one. Good Lord, imagine rolling over in the morning and seeing that.

        1. avatar DDay says:

          I’m walking around with eyes and after seeing her, I’m in PAIN.

        2. avatar Zach says:

          Aaaaaaaaaand now I no longer want to eat my lunch.

    2. avatar Nigel the expat says:

      This is where Dem/prog/anti animus comes from. They know they cannot be trusted with a gun, therefore they project this outlook on everyone else.

      1. Is she too stupid to realize she basically told everyone she’s- at worst unstable, at best irresponsible?

    3. avatar Big Bill says:

      It makes one wonder – if she thinks she would be an irresponsible gun owner, what makes her think she’s a responsible legislator?
      More to the point, what makes voters think she’s a responsible legislator?

    4. avatar Madcapp says:

      That bitch has a permafrown.

    5. avatar Question Authority says:

      If she can’t be trusted with a gun, how could she be trusted to make laws? In essence she is admitting that she is dangerous and not trustworthy. Not being trustworthy with a gun would by logical extension mean she is not trustworthy to be in the military or work as a police officer.

      She should resign from office and get immediate mental health care,

    6. avatar Random_Commenter says:

      This is not the “Pam Anderson” I was looking for…

      1. avatar BigDaveinVT says:

        je’esh Pam has let herself go! That woman could curdle milk with a mean stare!

  2. avatar CTstooge says:

    I wouldn’t trust her with a hairbrush.

    1. avatar KBonLI says:

      looks like nobody else does either.

  3. avatar Timothy says:

    I may not be a doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn once and I’m pretty sure that N. Dakota’s conceal carry everywhere else hasn’t resulted in a literal or figurative tidal wave of blood in the streets and that this is a run on sentence.

    But who am I to reference empirical evidence when…. feelings.

  4. avatar aircooled says:

    I’d much rather she have a gun in the statehouse than a pen.

    1. avatar Tori S says:

      Well said.

    2. avatar Esoteric Inanity says:

      Better that she go to the “pen” than be on the loose. After all, if by her own admission, she can’t be trusted with a firearm, then for the good of society she needs to be put away someplace “safe”.

  5. avatar Shire-man says:

    But we can trust her to legislate?
    If she’s so concerned about saving others from her she should resign.

    1. avatar Swilson says:

      This…if she can’t be trusted with a firearm, then she is obviously too much of a deviant or retard to be a legislator.

  6. avatar Tori S says:

    It’s my observation that most anti-gun people don’t trust themselves with a gun. It’s their projection onto everyone else that causes them to be anti-gun for all of us.

    1. avatar Swilson says:

      Kind of a benevolent overlord complex.

  7. avatar jwm says:

    If she can’t be trusted with a gun she can’t be trusted outside a controlled environment.

    And she’s still yet more proof that the anti gunners know they can’t handle the responsibility of a gun and just assume all others are as broken as they are.

  8. avatar Anonymous says:

    She’s really gone downhill since Baywatch ended.

    1. avatar Ranger Rick says:

      Sad too.

      Hey kids, don’t do drugs…!

    2. She got tired of people calling her “Babe”.

      1. avatar neiowa says:

        Which last occurred in 1944 when she met a desperate blind sailor home on shore leave from the Big One.

    3. avatar Kevin says:

      I have to stop LAUGHING before my co-worker asks what I’m laughing about.

    4. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

      On the other hand, she should be commended for taking her cartoonishly large fake boobs out and going back to what God gave her. That and having the courage to show up for state house photo day in a bathrobe and bunny slippers.

  9. avatar Rick says:

    Has Baywatch been over that long… ? Jeepers, those are some hard miles.

  10. avatar Chip in Florida says:

    So she thinks it acceptable to make laws for others based on her self-evaluation of her abilities?

    I know they don’t have the men with the white coats and butterfly nets anymore but surely there is someone that we can call to get this woman the help she is so obviously crying out for.

    1. avatar Ben says:

      That’s the typical liberal argument. If they wouldn’t trust themselves, with their mental conditions, they think it should be prohibited for all.

  11. avatar Rick says:

    I don’t think they’re going to pass them out at the door dumbass. Don’t bring one with you.

  12. I agree, Grumpy Cat, you should not have a gun.

    1. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

      Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Legislator. She actually had a 32 year career in banking, retiring as a Sr. V.P. with Well Fargo, before running for office in 2014. Could just imagine sitting across the desk from that back in the day, trying to get a home mortgage loan from Grumpy Banker? I’d rather live in a van down by the river.

  13. avatar Kevin says:

    If only all gun grabbers were as honest.

  14. avatar Paul B says:

    And there it is ladies and gentlemen, the (not so) secret core motivation behind gun control…projection. She knows that she couldn’t handle the responsibility, so she thinks you can’t either.

    1. avatar Ranger Rick says:

      Excellent analysis, I’ve come to the conclusion that folks like her also have serious “anger issues”.

      1. avatar Paul B says:

        Indeed. I’ve undergone something of a political transformation in recent years (from the center-left to the libertarian right) and as such, now that I’m no longer a member of their tribe I’ve began to notice the undercurrent of anger and megalomania within many of my former political cohorts. Control, winning elections and political tribalism that’s all this nonsense is about. The desire to control others (I would argue) requires a lack of self-esteem and supremely bleak view of your neighbors.

        1. avatar The Gray Poseur says:

          Welcome Paul B. You will be happier in this area of the spectrum.

        2. avatar Charles says:

          Not to mention a very bleak view of themselves. Welcome to the Sane Side, where personal responsibility is considered a virtue, not a suspicious sign of unacceptable mental activity, a/k/a thinking for yourself.

    2. avatar No one of consequence says:

      No … she *knows* she can’t handle the responsibility, and if she can’t, she *knows* you can’t either.

  15. avatar Mr.Savage says:

    just think of it, I probably do carry a gun, and that should make you feel safer, of course I’m comfortable with it and not a mental hazard.

  16. avatar The Gray Poseur says:

    Oh well, guess I can’t retire to Fargo. Any locale that would elect this type of freak for representation is a no go.

  17. avatar DaveL says:

    My mind boggles at the thought that a woman who thinks she shouldn’t be trusted with a gun still thinks she should be trusted with a vote in the state legislature.

  18. avatar pg2 says:

    I wouldn’t trust her with dentures.

  19. avatar No one of consequence says:

    I applaud her self-awareness, and suggest that she needs to work on her tendency towards projection.

  20. avatar JFRAME says:

    Not the Pamela Anderson I was thinking of.

  21. avatar NineShooter says:

    Even after the correction noted at the bottom of that article, it still has multiple errors and omissions. It’s one of the worst-worded articles I’ve ever seen, and that’s a pretty high bar, given some of the crap I’ve seen in print.

    The bill they are taking was NOT a part of a group of weapons laws previously proposed, as stated in the article. Instead, it started out as a “correction” bill for an existing law, so folks who were caught carrying without their permit on their person would get a 10-day grace period to show their permit so they wouldn’t be punished. Then they amended it to include this clause allowing “elected officials” (not just legislators, but ANY elected official, apparently; dogcatcher, anyone?) to carry in public buildings and at public gatherings (currently prohibited).

    The “enhanced permit” requirement referenced in the article is incorrect; the permit that would be required is a ND Class 2 permit, which is the most BASIC permit, only requiring open-book testing.

  22. avatar Rusty Chains says:

    Worse than a gun in that building, where she would have a group of targets limited to fellow politicians, she has a vote which has a range that will shoot all the way to the state line in any direction. That weapon has the power to shoot through stone, steel, or statute, and we the people only have the Constitution to protect us from the evil that lurks in the heart of politicians like her!

  23. avatar Grumpy Old Timer says:

    “Think of it — I could be walking around with a gun and that should make everybody nervous.”
    Now that there’s funny no matter who you are.

  24. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Let me get this straight: we cannot trust North Dakota Rep. Pam Anderson with a firearm … but we can trust her with a vehicle, knife, rat poison, and gasoline/matches. Got it.

    Ms. Anderson unwittingly makes one of the most compelling arguments to be armed … apparently people with no impulse control surround us and could lash out at any moment for little or no reason. And since those people can easily acquire chainsaws, machetes, knives, hammers, vehicles, matches, and gasoline, we would be wise to be armed and able to defend ourselves from all of these ticking time bombs among us.

    1. avatar NineShooter says:

      Oooh. I like that one. I’ll be using that.

      Would you like attribution, or will adoration suffice?

      1. avatar the ruester says:

        All ttag arguments are public domain!

      2. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Either one — attribution or adoration — is perfectly fine!

  25. avatar None says:

    She has been disgruntled ever since she got fired from her position at Monsters Inc.

    https://lumiere-a.akamaihd.net/v1/images/image_ac874114.jpeg

    1. avatar The Gray Poseur says:

      Yes. Perfect.

    2. avatar Rusty Chains says:

      That’s why she looked so familiar! I knew I had seen her somewhere before!

  26. avatar Aaron M. Walker says:

    Wow! This kind of political ninny in N. Dakota?!? This something I’d expect in Massachusetts, NOT there! How did this person become a state rep.?!

    1. avatar NineShooter says:

      The least-worse choice is not necessarily the same as a good choice.

    2. avatar Isaac says:

      She represents Fargo (basically think of it as a wannabe Minneapolis uptown or San Francisco Bay Area).

      Don’t worry we also have plenty of the ‘pray the crazy away and close the state mental hospital’ types too… I wish I was joking.

      1. avatar NineShooter says:

        She only represents a small PIECE of Fargo; a section that runs along the side of I-29 and I-94, consisting largely of apartments, duplexes, and four-plexes. Read: Dumb young Dems. Link to map of District 41:

        1. avatar Isaac says:

          Yup that’s more or less what I think of when I think of fargo… of course my big things in fargo are in-laws, scheels, all you can eat sushi and fleet farm so maybe to a local it’s more nuanced.

        2. avatar NineShooter says:

          You’re right on that count. I used to visit Fargo as an outsider (also to see the in-laws and other relatives), and it definitely changes once you live here for a while. We do have the feeling it’s becoming San-Francisco-On-The-Red-River more and more, though.

  27. avatar former water walker says:

    Then don’t carry a gat crazy cat. Ya’ know I had several conversations(at the gym mostly) about carrying concealed.This was before Illinois had CC. Several(all black men) said they couldn’t trust themselves. And they were honest about their lack of self-control(maybe too much). I’m cool with this Pam Anderson unarmed…

    1. avatar Ben says:

      I’m fine with her being unarmed, too. I’m NOT fine with her demanding that everyone else be unarmed, simply because of her inadequacies.

  28. avatar bryan1980 says:

    Hey lady, don’t project your flaws (or anything else, for that matter) on to the rest of us!

  29. avatar Ralph says:

    Yikes! She looks like she’s been constipated since the Clinton administration.

    1. avatar Vhyrus says:

      Well she’s certainly full of shit.

  30. avatar Rebelminion says:

    So let me see if I understand this correctly. By her own admission, she should not be trusted to carry a gun, but we should trust her with the power of the state?

  31. avatar BTP says:

    Suppose you had the power of life and death on your hip, okay? The power of freakin’ life and death! Like, right there; you’ve got your Glock or one of these machine guns they let you have and they have one of those silencers so nobody can hear it when you start shooting. And all you have to do to exercise this power is: you want to. Yo just reach down and get that power and, like, USE it. Against whoever, okay? You’re walking down the street and _every_single_person_ you pass is alive only because you don’t happen to want them dead at that particular minute.

    What would you do? What would any normal person who even begins to understand – who even CAN BEGIN to understand – how fucked up we are, okay? You’ve got corporations hijacking BlackLivesMatter so they can sell SODA, for Chrissakes! And the oppression and white privilege and fucking Trump not even, like,… that guy won’t even be impeached because of the Republicans. But look, any normal person would do what I’d do, which is shoot everybody. Some happy white family with their damn middle class suburban kids who don’t EVEN BEGIN to understand intersectionality, you’d just shoot ’em all. And we simply CANNOT have a society like that. So, no guns.

    – Pam Anderson (D) ND

  32. avatar YAR0892 says:

    If you’re too unstable to carry a gun, then how are you stable enough to create public policy capable of destroying the loves of millions in your state?

    Short answer: YOU’RE NOT.

  33. avatar VillarPerosa says:

    she is the embodiment of an incompetent pungent vag.

  34. avatar mark s. says:

    Sweetie , can I call her that ? There are all sorts of folks we can not or should not trust to own , carry ( concealed or otherwise ) a firearm of any type , size or caliber . They are everywhere , all around us , and making guns illegal , unlawful to own or carry , will not stop this …………………… THAT’S WHY WE NEED TO RETAIN ‘ OUR ‘ RIGHT TO OWN AND CARRY ! So we can stop dummy , irresponsible , unreasonable , nut jobs , like you SWEETIE , if the need arises . >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Drops mike .

  35. avatar Wiregrass says:

    I wouldn’t trust a pug with a gun either. Sorry but you made this about you.

  36. avatar Andrew Liasin says:

    She says we should be concerned she may have a gun yet we gave her the trust and ability to shape policy.

  37. avatar Mercutio says:

    NOT the “Pam Anderson with a gun” image I had in mind….

  38. avatar TyrannyOfEvilMen says:

    Ah, jeez…
    Cue the Looney Tunes laugh track! A Democrat is talking.

  39. avatar upyours says:

    Coworkers are looking at me like I’m a maniac due to my non-stop laughter. TTAG commentary — best break in the day.

  40. avatar J says:

    She’s a human bulldog.

  41. avatar MouseGun says:

    “People taking guns in public buildings”
    Yup, people can carry guns in ALL EIGHT public buildings in the Wasteland of North Dakota.
    JK.

  42. avatar Nathan Fellows says:

    I take her at her word, get her entered into NICS.

  43. avatar Matt N. says:

    I spent a year in Minot back in 2011, if memory serves. Nice little berg. Sportsmans loft, and Wallys world of knives were all l had to maintain sanity.

    1. avatar NineShooter says:

      Ah, good old “Why not Minot? Freezin’s the reason!”.

      Lived there in the 80s-90s. Big difference pre-flood/pre-oil-boom and after both.

    What a tasty morsel!

    Is this the ugliest person (use the term lightly) on the face of the earth?
