With an eye toward full employment of every hooker in Middle Tennessee, the National Rifle Association will open its annual convention today in Nashville. The assemblage of thousands of trigger-happy morons will spend three days salivating over gun exhibits and listening to nine Republican presidential hopefuls as well as Palin and Trump. (In fact, the only conceivable Republican nominee not attending will be Rand Paul who was oddly not invited.)
In addition to the Rand Paul slight, the other bit of buzz regarding this year's convention is that attendees may carry their own personal weapons to the affair, but they cannot be loaded (the weapons, not the attendees). Also, every gun on display at the convention will have its firing pin removed. Guns purchased during the three-day armament orgy will be shipped to a federally licensed firearms dealer located near the buyer's home for convenient pickup - away from the convention.
God save Wayne LaPierre and Ted Nugent!
That's right! The National Rifle Organization, a despicable organization that favors the rights of gun owners to carry their loaded weapons into churches, businesses, schools, taverns, and day care centers, has qualms about letting their own card-carrying knuckleheads carry loaded weapons into their national gun fest. What a bunch of hypocrites!
It looks like the only banging in Nashville this weekend will be with the hookers!
