Bush says: No Guns For Felons Or The Mentally Ill...But They Can Run Like Cheap Pantyhose For Political Office
In an unprecedented and bold move yesterday, Congress passed its first gun control legislation in 12 years! George Bush signed off on a bill that would expand the federal database used to screen gun buyers in order to "Findify felons and the mentally ill." as the Dumbander-In-Chief decreed. Unless of course the mentally ill person was never diagnosed as being so and has no record of behavioral instability which would leave them free to buy anything short of a rocket launcher.
Surprisingly, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the National Rifle Association are on the same side in this argument but not everyone in Washington is all smiles. Kristen Rand of the Violence Policy Center said there is "far more bad in this bill than good." Due mostly to the fact that there are some provisions to restore gun owning priviledges to some people who could not own before but now pass the "crazy" criteria. Asked if the organization's support for the bill was a sign of a new willingness to work with gun control groups, an NRA spokesman offered this lengthy response: "No."

Ass-kicking God bless America.
