To everybody’s’ surprise the NRA has announced that guns in the hands of people can kill.

The NRA states:

Guns do not kill people, however in the people's hands there is always the remote possibility that someone could be killed by accident.  So remote that there is more risk from tornadoes than guns, and much more risk for those weapons of mass destruction, automobiles.

However,

the spokesperson continued,
When used appropriately guns can kill. Used by the military they do an excellent job on the battlefield, sometimes even killing enemies. When used by law enforcement there is a slight possibility guns used correctly can even kill violent criminals, especially those at home armed with a dangerous beer.

We all know that guns are extremely effective at killing teenagers armed with a concealed can of iced tea. That is well documented.
These appropriate uses of guns are not the subject of our second amendment discussion today.

The NRA proposes to form Militias of armed citizens to carry out swift and effective executions in our Correctional Institutions.

These Militias, used as Firing Squads , will relieve states of the expense and embarrassment caused by use of untested execution drug cocktails, because we  are absolutely certain  our bullets are tried and true, with a long history.

To remunerate these volunteer worthies for their service to the state, we propose that the state provide the bullets they use, complete with tax credits for bullets used for target practice.  This use of guns is well documented, effective and relatively but expensive (unless you include the tax credits).

We believe serving members of the Militia Firing Squads are practicing their second amendment rights, and should be provided every opportunity to receive both free ammunition (for the Militia) and tax credit for (Practice) ammunition, up to 100,000 rounds per weapon per year.

We believe these well-armed citizens, as part of a well ordered militia, will be experienced and well-trained after they use 2,000 rounds of ammunition for practice every week.

To fulfil the need for complete disclosure the NRA executive have an option to purchase the third largest ammunition suppler in the US, to help the Militated Firing Squads fully execute their duties.
The new slogan for the NRA’s campaign is: Guns Out, doing Duty first, or as acronym: GOD first.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      for those sentenced to death and having chosen that method prior to the repeal of firing squads in 2004. the last one to choose that route was Ronnie Lee Gardner, shot in 2010. According to wikipedia, there were three relatively recent firing squad executions, Gary Gilmore in 1977, John Taylor in 1996, and Ronnie Lee Gardner in 2010.

    really did it this time. Full court press.  The crazies like wacky wayne are itching to shoot someone. There is no reason for a SYG or castle law like the one that got that exchange student killed, unless someone wants to shoot another person very badly.I bet if they have a lottery it will crash their server faster than the ACA rollout. The inmates, representing .01 of the population or less, have taken over the institution. Welcome to the rabbit hole.

      to be topical, possibly credible, humorous but just over the top.

      That's the fun part.

      And hopefully preempt any possibility of implementation with ridicule.

      The second part is deadly serious.
