Mandatory gun law

Wouldn't it be funny if it passes, even if he thinks it will fail?  I know he's doing it to make a point about healthcare, so this could be in the political section too.

it would

Heck its already a moral obligation to own a gun.  In my opinion, it would be cool if it became a legal obligation to defend your family too.

Mandatory Gun Law

You're right...this should probably be in the politics section.  It is brilliant, though.  It's the exact same thing...government requiring you to purchase a commercial product because it thinks you need to have it for your own good.

That aside, it's a sure bet that if such a law did take effect and was enforced, the violent crime rate would no doubt go way down.
