concealed carry

2006-01-12 16:13:11.821148+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Tulua, Colombia wants to make it mandatory for everyone over 14 to carry a condom, the penalty for breaking the law would be taking a safer sex course, or a $180 fine.

The proposal is perhaps the most radical in a series of pro-condom efforts across a country where 190,000 people live with AIDS, a figure only surpassed in Latin America by Brazil, according to the World Health Organization.

So... it just occurred to me to think through the enforcement implications of such a law... Will there be sting operations?

Well, at least one of the higher risk groups (catholic priests) will be required to carry, too.

Kennesw requires you to have a gun, a carry permit, and some training.

Would be appropriate for the condom, especially if you had some training.

Yeah, I can imagine how many guys in Columbia would pull a condom out of their wallet when asked to prove they were carrying. That just isn't an appropriate way to carry them.
