Going on the theory that guns don’t kill people, people do, the Pentagon announced today that they will sell all of the guns they currently have, and not replace them.
“We have plenty of people, that should do the trick,” said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.
The sale represents a bonanza for NRA members, who are nonetheless not pleased with the situation.
“Well, okay, we get lots of guns cheap, but what about bombs and missiles? Hunting is a cherished tradition for Americans, and here’s a politician trying to deny us our constitutional rights,” said NRA spokesman Wayne LaPierre.
When asked if Wayne LaPierre was really his name, he abruptly ended the interview, by speculating whether, just this once, his own gun could kill someone.
In other news, Dwayne Sheboygan, 18, was arrested at his school in Texas for threatening to kill everybody in his class with a cocked and fully loaded index finger.
