He's just repeating
his boss'the Police Chief's sentiments.
If HPD really wanted to make it easier, they would eliminate the 2 week wait if you already had to wait that long for an appointment. The 2 weeks is supposed to be a "cooling off" period, not extra time to do a background check. They could easily finish that in 3 days or less. Does anyone really believe waiting 2 weeks BEFORE applying for a permit is going to "cool you down" any less than having to wait 2 week AFTER applying?
Yeah. They really want to make the process easier for buyers.
The curve is almost a pancake now. No overwhelming of hospitals and healthcare services. That's the ONLY reason for the flattening: to avoid having more sick at once than we can care for.
No laundry card?
No, they wanted special protections, just like all the other protected classes in the nation. Being part of that class gives you the right to make big money suing people whether or not they actually discriminated against you.
Now that playing the "Race" card is so popular, everyone else wants their cards added to the deck.
That cake baker won the lawsuit, but only because of the nature of his work. He makes individualized cakes, which are considered more artwork than just food. As such, the baker was in essence being asked to invest his time and talents to produce a cake with a design and message he did not support: Gay Marriage. He would have sold them a basic wedding cake, but not a cake that's specifically for a Gay wedding.
The fact that the couple drove a long way, opting to not even try to use another baker closer to their home or venue, and then quickly filing a lawsuit indicates that they targeted this baker specifically because they are Christian-owned and operated.
Anyway, he wasn't refusing to bake for them because they were Gay. It was because of the type of cake they wanted. He'd have happily sold them something else.
From watching the local news and seeing the strange things happening here like stabbings and numerous fatal car crashes, I say that people are already starting to crack psychologically. People are social animals and need interaction. On Saturday, the park by my house was packed with people definitely not social distancing.
I do agree that in order to survive we are going to have to let people be people. Apparently, catching the virus is not the automatic death sentence that some people would have us believe.
That is the problem right there. Who's version of safety are we talking about? The one where we use our best judgement and accept the consequences, or the one where we surrender our rights to people who think they know what is best for us yet have a horrible track record of being wrong and completely hypocritical?
