    Enough women disagree. Furthermore, it was a political disaster. Lastly, again, the legislature rescinded the order due to the should-have-been-obvious issue.

    This is nowhere near the same thing, and the appropriate response was to wait until people actually broke the law and then punish them. This way punishes everyone with a presumption of guilt.
    True. They could have just tolerated a tampon and pad melee and then arrested them for assault instead. Maybe they were actually doing these "fine ladies" a favor.

    The only political disaster is that of the ninnies screaming about a simple little disturbance concern founded on specific threats and trying to make it into an event of consequence.

    How long will it be before you abandon the ignorant battle-cry of 'But they let guns in!!'

    As if that has anything to do with a specific threat.

    At least that way, only those who actually intended to disrupt the proceedings would be punished. Kind of like how they assume that law-abiding gun carriers were going to obey the law.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I'll argue the point until I get bored, sort of like how you'll lie about me until you get bored, I guess.

    I haven't lied about anything. Your "points" are a pile of ash and everyone can see that. And your newest battle-cry is especially clueless.

    Sure you did. You said I dropped points I haven't dropped. Keep on lying, bud.

    Do you really see this as a "punishment?" Good Lord, I'm a woman and I don't think someone taking my tampon away as a punishment (unless they took ALL of my tampons and wouldn't let me have them anymore). I might think they were a little weird and wonder what exactly they think I'm going to do with my tampon, but that's about the extent of the outrage for me.
