#TXLEGE: More Denial, Rationalization, from Lt. Dan

"The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness."
Proverbs 15:2

Hoo boy:
[Note: Lt. Dan's full interview is available here, although the tweet quoted above is all you need for this blog post.]

That's not good.

One example: How does one define the phrase "family member" for legal purposes?!?

Will "family member" be defined only as blood relatives?!?  If so, how many "drops of blood" will be required to qualify?!?  If not, will 'family members' via marriage be included?!?  If so, how does Obergefell factor into the definition of marriage (*) for purposes of this statute?!?   How about divorce?!?  We could go on, but you understand.  If defining the relatively simple phrase "family member" has this many unintended complexities, how will Lt. Dan ever define subjective phrases like "friend" and "stranger"?!?

Bottom Line: This will not end well....


* -- Imagine the mental gymnastics....
