Laughing at liberals offering to buy guns

Reading about the new gun buy back program in New London, the latest and lamest brainstorm of New London's Soviet-style mayor, gave me a sorely needed laugh while I devoured my cornflakes and read the latest NRA newsletter.

Liberals are a never-ending source of humor for us real folk, especially those well-meaning City Hall bean counters who dutifully helm the ship of a sinking city. And as if to give some kind of symbolic credence to this silly utopian notion, Mr. Mayor surrounded himself with the usual religious suspects - clergy persons from mostly liberal churches with leftist political leanings. It all looked so photographically (i.e. politically) correct, but practically and morally inept.

If I return a gun could I get a gift card for a specific gun shop I'd like to patronize? Can I use the card to refuel my dwindling ammo supply at some Montana gun show? Gosh, maybe I could buy some bullet-proof padding or a dozen of those really cool new duck-decoys or, better yet, buy me a new machete for night excursions downtown.

Perhaps I could even make a generous donation to the NRA or the next group of New London mayoral hopefuls. In New London, a new novel scheme is just around the next press conference.

Comet, meteor, asteroid, meteorite, shooting star? What's the difference? I'm so confused.

No, events in the sky don't interest me much. I'm much more concerned with what's happening here on the ground.
