I am not a Missouri resident (I live in Kentucky where the governor has been praised for his response to the pandemic) so I have not kept up on what the governor has not done, but I also do not see his action as described in the article as a poor response. He signed an executive order to suspend a legal penalty for failing to renew a permit in a timely manner as a means of encouraging those whose permits are up for renewal to remain at home.

If he has been particularly unresponsive in most other ways, then this order would be a good contrast suggesting skewed priorities but the article itself does not make that point.

People at home probably aren't in need of concealed carry, are they?

Other regulatory agencies have done similar things, The FAA, which oversees medical certification of pilots, has extended expiration dates of medical certificates since many aviators can't get in for recurring exams. Seems straightforward enough.

Yes but this particular act prevents concealed weapons permit holders from being punished for being responsible and staying inside rather than going out to renew an expiring permit.

Encouraging people to stay at home is fine, but not at the expense of sticking it to the gun nuts.

He let school districts decide for themselves when to close. All of them eventually did. He's been hammered by medical and health professionals, educators, lawmakers, and his opponent this fall for failing to issue a statewide order to stay at home. The KC Star (direct link doesn't work - https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/opn​-columns-blogs/melinda-henneberger/art​icle241672556.html) and the RFT are excoriating him.

He sees coronavirus as enough of a problem to give 2nd Amendment enthusiasts a handjob but not a big enough problem to issue a Shelter in Place order.. That's pathetic.

As bad as I think Parsons has handled this, I shudder to think how Greitens would have handled this.

Because he would definitely view this as a resume for a higher office which would probably result in policies that are even more stupid than what we have today.

During the 1918 pandemic, restrictions on public gatherings affected churches. Churches were closed in cities such as Dallas, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and Seattle. I guess Americans really hated God, Jesus, Christians, and religious freedom, and America 100 years ago. Or perhaps they were just smarter than us.

I'm not sure what you're saying here. Pilots can be punished for flying without current credentials. There's zero tolerance for that in noormal times.

My Weeners was meant to be sarcastic and separate from the second. So to be even more clear, I AGREE it's stupid to harass people over expired permits right now.

In case any of you were wondering why Dr. Fauci hates state's rights and our freedomz: he has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984.

In other words, he's a deep state Obama holdover who hates America.

/also he is not a businessman nor job creator.

Evangelicals were less aggressively self-entitled 100 years ago than today. They didn't demand exceptions to generally applicable laws to accommodate religious "requirements" that no religion actually required. Like spreading deadly diseases just to stick it to the libs.

The point isn't that it's bad policy. It's that it's bad priority. He's making a photo op out of kissing NRA ass while doctors and nurses can't get personal protective equipment.

He took over from the guy who tied a woman up in his basement and took nude photos of her against her will.
And a senior member of the Senate has recently blamed CORVID-19 on people having medical privacy.

We don't really tend to elect 'adults' here.

In fairness, he did a stay-at-home order. He just made the definition of "essential" so arbitrary that its basically useless.

Maybe not the adult.  Maybe the babysitter who's filling in until the parents get back home.

Stupid fat fingers.

As I was trying to say, the problem was that the article itself failed to include the context of the governor being utterly inept and incompetent at handling the pandemic prior to this order. Had you accounted for the article's omission by making mention of some example, like his failure to take initiative in closing schools as someone noted, I would have been less perplexed by the headline.

In 2010, Missouri voters passed a referendum, the Missouri Dog Breeding Regulation Act, regulating dog-breeding, because the only thing Missouri is #1 in is goddam disgusting puppy mills. A year later, at the demand of the Missouri Farm Bureau ag lobby, Republicans in the state legislature effectively repealed that law.

The Republican who led that repel, champion of degenerate puppy-mill breeders, Man of the People who used the democratic process to undermine the democratic process?

Why that was Missouri Senator Mike Parson.

He's been a piece of shiat for a looooong time.
