Sarah Palin Meets a Gun Owner She Doesn’t Like

The above headline (and the photo I’ve added) are both misleading. Sarah “You Betcha” Palin won’t be meeting her armed admirer. And the headline’s not my creation. All hail metro, a blog that took a simple story of stalking—albeit one tailor-made for pervy accountants (guns! glamor! receipts!)—and turned it into political commentary . . .

Vice presidential candidate and former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin has been granted a temporary restraining order against 18-year-old Shawn Christy for buying a gun and then sending her the receipts.

According to court documents, the teen sent the receipts to Palin and her friend, Kristan Cole, along with a note that said he had tried to follow the Bible but had “evil and wickedness” in him . . .

Wait. Someone was allowed to buy a gun, even though they are mentally unstable and wanted to allegedly use it for harm?  How can that be? In this country, don’t we have laws to monitor the sale of … oh … right … nevermind, then.

If that’s the way you want it . . .
