I must say the legislator from South Carolina, Representative Mike Pitts, is a genius. He introduced H. 4702 which is modeled after concealed carry legislation. The “South Carolina Responsible Journalism Registry” would require a criminal background check before someone could work as a journalist. The wonderful part of this legislation is how it trounces all over First Amendment rights, very similar to the way other legislation has tried to infringe on Second Amendment rights. Journalists are already lining up to denounce this legislation and what I find hilarious is they cannot see the irony of their statements, columns, and actions. They are basically saying heck no the First Amendment cannot be messed with, but are perfectly fine infringing upon the Second. Sometimes you just want to sit on the sidelines with popcorn and a drink and watch the show. This one should prove to be a good one!
