Well, At Least They Identified His Party

I have long suspected that much of the often bizarre rhetoric about gun control that comes from many Democratic legislators was some sort of projection: we're unstable, likely to kill someone because we are unable to control our tempers, so everyone else must be that messed up.  Shall Not Be Questioned often publishes items about members of Bloomberg's gun control group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, being arrested, convicted, removed from office, etc. for a variety of criminal charges.  Here's another Democrat in trouble.  From the March 29, 2013 Los Angeles Times, a news story about the first member of the Nevada legislature to expelled since 1867:
LAS VEGAS – Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested near Barstow after a high-speed chase, hours after being expelled from the Legislature because he was “potentially dangerous.”

Brooks, 41, was arrested about 7 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 15 at Stoddard Wells Road, officials said. He was being held in the San Bernardino County Jail in Rancho Cucamonga on $100,000 bail, jail officials told the Los Angeles Times.
He was apparently throwing stuff out of the car at California police during the chase, including a handgun.  Here's a hint: handguns are normally more effective weapons if you keep the gun, and fire bullets from it.  As clubs, they are not even as good as rifles or shotguns.
 In January, Brooks was arrested on suspicion of threatening a fellow Democrat, Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick. Just days after Brooks’ alleged threats against the speaker, he was accused of grabbing for an officer's gun during an arrest in Las Vegas on suspicion of domestic battery.
Apparently Brooks has a rather interesting history, including psychiatric observation, and attempting to buy a gun in a Nevada gun store.  Attempting?  This is not normally a difficult procedure, but perhaps since he was kicked out of a casino restaurant recently, perhaps there are some behavior problems.  It does make you wonder how messed the voters of his district must be, if they elected someone a few fries short of a Happy Meal. 

Of course, that does not surprise me much.  I mentioned last year one of the Democrats trying to get the nomination for U.S. House in my district here in Idaho had an unfortunate incident involving brandishing a firearm, while asking employees of a place that was printing campaign flyers for her if they were ready to meet God.  Yes, she had a mental hospital lockup history, and even better, she only came in 7 points behind the former pro football player who was also seeking the nomination.  Of course, Jimmy Farris, while he would not have been a great Congressman, did not get arrested and involuntarily hospitalized in the middle of the campaign to high publicity.  This tells me a lot about either how carefully Democratic voters in the First Congressional District pay attention to news, or how they feel about crazy people waving guns around at innocent people.
