Each week the WBOB personalities work diligently both on the air and via our blogs to inform and entertain. This week a few of the gang weighed in on what the state of RI should focus on in the new year. Of course there was no shortage of opinions, many to graphic to post. However we selected for you, the opinions that manage to relate to the majority the state's citizens.

If I were the state of Rhode Island my new years resolution would be that the state not only register non-gun owners but also charge them for not having a gun. Under the new resolution Rhode Island would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of traipsing about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.
This wouldn't be the first time in America that such a law was passed. In Kennesaw, GA, gun ownership has been mandatory since 1982 with a fine of $100 being levied for violators. In contrast to the hysteria the gun control zealots were expounding at the time, crime was drastically lowered while the population skyrocketed.

If the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations made a New Year's resolution it would probably resolve to raise taxes and subsequently spend the new dollars on everything except education and infrastructure. That's right dumb kids and pot holes! 2014 here we come.
