You MUST Buy a Gun!

Here's an interesting twist. There is a bill in South Dakota that would REQUIRE all citizens to buy a gun. It does not say what kind of firearm but simply “suitable to their temperament, physical capacity, and preference.” and “sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense.”

Now wait a minute! Why are your mouths hanging open? If the gubment can force you to buy health insurance, surely it can force you to buy a gun! 

Relax! This whole thing was conjured up by Rep. Hal Wick, R-Sioux Falls, who is simply illustrating absurdity by being absurd. He was simply attempting to illustrate the unconstitutionality of requiring citizens to buy health insurance.

Wouldn't it be funny though if South Dakota really did pass such a bill? There would be such whining and screaming by Obama and the Dimocrats that it would be absolutely hilarious. The federal gubment would be suing South Dakota faster than the ink could dry on the paperwork. They would really be caught between a rock and a hard place over gubment mandates, wouldn't they?
