Forty-two years ago, the great Bill Cosby released the record album 200 MPH. In the album was a long routine entitled as such, regarding his purchase of a sports car from Carroll Shelby, advertised to do over 200 miles-per-hour. Mr. Cosby, you see, liked to drive fast.
The climax of this routine (spoiler alert) was the fast car so scared him, that he donated it to George Wallace, a well-known Dixiecrat Governor and bigot (at the time-he reformed before he died).
But, in the meat of the routine, Bill stops for gas, and it occurs to him he has no idea where the gas cap is located. The gas guy (attention youngsters – others filled your tank for you, way back when!) suggested he pour gasoline all over the car, and maybe it would suck in somewhere.
This leads to the title of this post. After the recent murders in Colorado, the usual folks came out in support of more gun control. As if more legislation would have stopped the carnage before it happened. This presupposes the bad/crazy guys obey the law!
And the anti-rights folks seemed well-prepared, as if these important bills were already on file just waiting for some catastrophic event to trigger them to be brought forth for a vote. (!)
They were already discussing Fast & Furious gun control, and the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, then added two more bills regarding ‘assault’ magazines and other controls. Then yesterday, Internet ammunition purchase control legislation was also introduced. (Bill Seeks Limit On Online Ammo Purchases)
It’s as if they are saying pour
it them over the car Congress, it’ll suck in somewhere!
In other words, a blitzkrieg. Flood the legislature with as many bills as possible, and maybe one will squeak through.
We must remain vigilant, or one or more will.
