TAKE IT AWAY BILL SIMON… Matt Drudge links to an article that says the California State Supreme Court ruled today that counties and cities in California may ban gun shows on their fairgrounds and other government properties.

Living in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I remember liberal Republican Christie Todd Whitman narrowly squeaking by very liberal Democrat Jim Florio because he (a) raised taxes and (b) angered many, many gun owners (at the invitation of my then-boss, I attended a south Jersey gun show, whose parking lot had row after row after row of cars with red and white “DUMP FLORIO” bumperstickers). If Simon can’t exploit this court ruling in his campaign, he’s not much of a politician.
