Assault Rifles, our Congress, and Prayers

One child chokes on a toy inside a German chocolate egg, and all chocolate eggs are banned from the United States. In this post I suggested that we make the eggs big enough to hide assault rifles so children, and I, could enjoy them.

On December 22, 2001, one crazy guy set a shoe on fire in an airliner. Since then, 1.73 million people take their shoes off at US airports every day. That’s about 10 billion pairs of shoes taken off at airports security lines since 2001.

In both of those cases, laws and regulations were passed quickly to stem the problem.

Yet, when we have a guy who buys an assault rifle and kills 50 people in a sweep and injures that many more, all Congress can offer is prayers?

Nobody on the street, other than law enforcement or the military, should have access to weapons of mass destruction. It’s pretty simple. And the second amendment – read all about it here – says nothing about weapons of mass destruction.

A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed…



Kinder Eggs, Lawn Darts and Assault Rifles

Of the three very dangerous products below, two are banned in the United States.


Kinder Surprise Eggs have toys hidden inside the chocolate covers inside an inner plastic egg. Over a period of 20 years, there were 7 deaths of children reported, presumably when children tried to eat the toys. Kinder Eggs are illegal in the United States and border guards at airports sometimes xray packages to identify and confiscate them.


Over a period of ten years, 6700 people were injured by lawn darts. 75% of those injured were children. Three children died. One father of a child went on a crusade and got lawn darts banned.


Annually, 7,000 children get injured in the United States from gunshots. Another 3,000 die each year. Guns are legal in the United States. Even assault rifles are.

Perhaps we need to wrap assault rifles inside chocolate eggs? That’ll get them banned!

Go figure the logic.
