Adolphus Busch IV, heir to the Busch family brewing fortune, resigned his lifetime membership in the National Rifle Association on Thursday, writing in a letter to NRA President David Keene, “I fail to see how the NRA can disregard the overwhelming will of its members who see background checks as reasonable.”

Another serving of irony so thick, a lightsaber needs to be used for proper slicing.

Volstead Act? Eighteenth Amendment? Prohibition? For somebody whose family business had to endure the excesses of the Government, the idiocy is of a magnitude measured in parsecs.

    And you know what? While we’re at it, you should need to pass a background check to buy a car.
