NRA supports ‘assault weapons’ ban!

Not really, but I figured that would grab the attention of those who accuse me of harboring an obsessive (or was it “deranged”?) hatred of the NRA.

Anyway, this is some pretty funny satire (excerpt):

The NRA today came out in favor of the Obama administration’s attempt at reviving the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004, citing experts who say that assault weapons perpetuate unhealthy stereotypes of physical beauty.

“We support the proposed assault weapons ban for much that same reason that West Virginia state lawmaker Jeff Eldridge supports a ban on the sale of Barbie dolls,” said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, “because they place too much emphasis on the importance of a weapon’s physical beauty, at the expense of a shooter’s intellectual and emotional development.”

Go read the rest, it’s not long, and we could all use a Friday chuckle.

    WV legislators had to realize proposing a Barbie ban would cause a big media stir but, then again, maybe this was strategic…

    Bitcoin has experienced amazing increases over the last year and there are now those that will claim that the bubble is about to burst and Bitcoin crumble. Some of us still believe in the idea of an independent currency away from the reach of the financial establishment. We don’t believe that Bitcoin is finished. We will be sticking with Bitcoin and we are quite certain that Bitcoin will continue to rise faster than in the past. Banks are really worried about the growth of crypto currency. Their worry is driven by the reality that bitcoin does not incur a small part of the costs that traditional banking requires.
