A better idea for drug screening in Tejas

Gov. Rick Perry continues to tout the tired old wingnut line of drug-testing welfare recipients.

I have a much better idea. Given that yahoo at the mall in San Antonio on Black Friday, let’s drug test applicants for concealed handgun licenses.

And, no, it’s not a total “pox on your house” idea, or joke. The greatest number of homicides in the U.S. involve a victim who knows his or her killer; many of those involve domestic issues. Why shouldn’t we drug-test you? And, include alcohol as a “drug” on the testing, too?
