Republican Gun Control

 So let me get this straight, Republicans in the United States Senate are introducing a Bill to limit the amount of ammunition the Government can buy?

 A Senate Bill co sponsored by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.)  Will Limit the amount of ammo the people we rely on to defend us can buy and possess.  Agencies like the Department of Homeland Security, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

   Need I remind you that these are the same Elected Representatives that want the common Citizen to be able to purchase and stockpile as much ammunition as they want, which includes some convicted felons, thanks to these same brainiac law makers.

   So lets do the Math.  The Department of Homeland Security has 240,000 employees, if Wikipedia is correct.  Lets say half of them need to carry guns, and that's being generous.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau.  217 million of which are over the age of 18.  2.2 million of those are incarcerated in one form or another that leaves just over 214 million adults.  Let's say half of them are ineligible, for different reasons.  That's being more than fair.  So what do we have?  That leaves us with roughly 107 million legal U.S. Citizens qualified to own  as many guns, and as much ammunition as the see fit.

   Not to worry.  Even if just 1 percent of them are Fanatics, that's only 1 million 70 thousand  crazies running around with all the guns and ammo while 240 thousand well meaning Homeland Security Agents are chasing after them blowing whistles, and waving their arms telling them to stop because they don't have what they need to keep themselves safe, let alone you and me.

   Even if my math is off and I'm sure it is, it's my worst subject, you have to admit allowing civilians to have more guns and ammo than the cops is a stupid idea!  It is as idiotic as the people who thought of it!  If these Senators had to work in the real world, and presented a proposal like that to their bosses in the Corporate world, they'd be fired.

   No matter how you run the numbers, or how often it all adds up to the same outcome. Stupid will always be Stupid!

   Let me drive home the depths of the Grand Old Party's stupidity.  The people who will stop at nothing to make sure America will never have gun control is advocating gun control for the people who know how to use guns!
