The runaway winner of my most recent online poll for best tweet of the week was this mock dialogue posted to Twitter by @TheNardvark:
“Can I get two boxes of Sudafed?”
“Sorry, by law you can only buy one at a time.”
“OK then, just the one box of Sudafed and these seven guns.”
The analogy between pseudoephedrine — the active ingredient in Sudafed and many other decongestant cold and allergy medications — and firearms is wry but apt.
I seriously need to do a ride-along with a reporter and figure out how is it possible they can’t do a simple Google search or use two second worth of common sense.
How is it that Eric Zorn has not figured out one simple yet big difference between buying Sudafed and a gun at their respective stores? Felons can legally buy Sudafed but are not allowed by law to buy a firearm. Dear God, Felons are not even allowed to be near a frigging gun or ammunition!
But that is what happens when you do “journalism” based on Press Releases from Gun Control groups.
I believe that being shot should be requirement for gun ownership in America. It’s very simple. You need to have gun, like taking selfies with pistols, can’t live with out it? Then take a bullet and you will be granted the right to purchase the firearm of your choice.
Dear D. Watkins: If you happen to have a fire extinguisher, I wanna see your self-inflicted burn scars. Otherwise, stop talking nonsense out of your rectal exit.
PS: You can’t have sex unless you pass a bowling ball through the above-mentioned rectal exit. A man should not be allowed to have carnal knowledge with a woman until he experiences the pain of childbirth… without epidural.
Hat Tip on this one goes to Brad Torgersen via Facebook.
