NRA Defends Iraq's 'Right To Bear Arms'



In a surprise development to the current Iraq crisis, America's National Rifle
Association has voted to oppose war with Iraq and issued a statement saying
Saddam Hussein has 'a right to bear arms' which the U.S. government should not
infringe. The unexpected move has shocked political commentators who saw the
NRA as staunchly pro-war.

In a press release, the NRA stated: "For many years now we have been saying
that the United States government should not dictate to our members what
weapons we can and cannot possess and that any attempt to do so is an
infringement on our rights and unconstitutional. After lengthy discussions with
our members and committee members, we have concluded that to be consistent,
we have to oppose any war with Iraq, because the principle at stake is
essentially the same."

The second amendment to the United States Constitution states: '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.' The exact interpretation
of the amendment has been the subject of debate for decades, with the pro-gun
lobby claiming it gives every citizen the inalienable right to possess weapons for
their own protection.

Saddam Hussein immediately called a press conference at his holiday retreat on
the outskirts of Baghdad, praising the NRA for its "sensible and righteous
decision." Dressed in a novelty T-shirt depicting NRA spokesman Charlton
Heston as Ben Hur, the Iraqi leader held aloft a green canister and told
reporters: "You will take my mustard gas from my cold, dead hands! Praise be
to Allah!" The press conference then swiftly came to and end as reporters
hurriedly made for the exits.

The NRA also unveiled new bumper stickers on its website proclaiming
"Anthrax doesn't kill people, people who release anthrax kill people!" although
a spokesman said these were only a trial and would not be mass produced.

Donald Rumsfeld was unavailable for comment.

Is this a joke or is it for real cuz I can't tell; it's on the edge. It looks like a joke but then it could be true...?

Of course it's a joke.

The NRA supports the 2nd amendment of the US. Not rubbish in Iraq.

Exactly. Every time an American dies of gunshot, the NRA has blood on its hands. Shame on them.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

And everytime a gun is used to stop a crime (and in 90% of situations is never even fired), thank you NRA. This happens an estimated 2.5 million times a year in the US.

The relative murder rate by guns falls 92% when you cross the border from the US into Canada. In other words, Americans are 12 times more likely to die from gunshot as Canadians, for no reason other than the sheer proliferation of guns in the US.

Last time I checked, we Canadians feel just as free as you Americans despite tougher gun laws up here. Actually, arguably we are freer.....we are free from the fear of gunshot.

1. If this happens 2.5 million times a year, MD-90, why the hell don't you ever hear these stories on the news? Don't give me biased news reporting, either, as an excuse. In an age where everyone and their dog has a video camera, and every decent size city has "Action News at 6", tell me why you don't ever hear about these heroic acts of gun owners? I'll tell you why:

2. Those numbers are NRA numbers, aren't they? They have to be, because the only group such numbers help are the NRA and the gun nuts like yourself.

Guns are for losers.

Depends on who you ask, Alpha.

The number varies between 800,000 and 2.5 million a year.

With that said, between you and Siverfox, I'm now both a redneck and a loser.
