senate of the apes

Senate of the apes

Since the NRA and the Bush administration is so gung-ho about gun rights and the nation’s Congress chose not to renew the 10-year ban on so-called assault weapons, and apparently gun sales have alarmingly sky-rocketed after what happened in New Orleans...i take you back to:

September, 2004.

"The expiration Monday of a 10-year federal ban on assault weapons means firearms like AK-47s, Uzis and TEC-9s can now be legally bought - a development that has critics upset and gun owners pleased. The 1994 ban, signed by President Clinton, outlawed 19 types of military-style assault weapons. A clause directed that the ban expire unless Congress specifically reauthorized it, which it did not.

Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. Well I have a proposition, Mr. Heston and the members of congress that were successful in allowing the 10-year ban on so-called assault weapons to lapse and not be renewed:

I challenge those individuals to enter congress in full view of live television news cameras, carrying an assortment of 50 (each fully-loaded and with safety catches set to off), hand guns, shotguns, and assault-type weapons (one for each state seems reasonable), place them on the floor of the Senate and deliver a speech on live TV to the nation as to why these weapons should not be banned. The speaker of the House will then ask you to remain standing in your positions.

Then, Michael Moore will walk in, accompanied by 50 chimpanzees, all wearing bullet-proof protective gear from head to toe (The FBI will have conducted background checks to make sure that no chimps guilty of any felony crimes be admitted onto the Senate floor).

The chimpanzees will then be allowed to play freely with the firearms for the next ten minutes. How's that’s for reality TV?

"Guns don’t kill people; People kill people". are you guys absolutely sure about that......?
