Another Example of Emotion Superceding Logic in Mississippi Lawmaking

Fortunately this bill died.

Revisiting the formula I discussed in my article about the Nitrous Oxide bill, we can see the same same criteria has been met in this HB 2505.

Small child is killed. There are laws against passing a stopped school bus and running over people with your car. The laws did not prevent this child's death; therefore, a new law with stricter punishments must be passed to prevent this from ever happening again.

Fortunately the bill died in conference committee. Here's the votes if you're interested.
