Vick No. 9 In Shooting Contest

If you think your North Idaho legislator isn't a straight shooter, you might be right. Only one North Idaho legislator finished in the top 10 of 28 lawmakers who participated in a recent shooting contest, coordinated by the Idaho Fraternal Order of Police. State Sen. Steve Vick, of Hayden Lake, finished No. 9. Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Boise; Rep. Mike Moyle, R-Star; & Rep. Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, finished one, two, and three, respectively. All of the Top 10 finishers were Republicans. Dunno if any legislative Dems were invited. You can see the results for the Top 10 here.

Question: Would you respect a lawmaker more/less if s/he knew how to shoot a gun?
