Reports Ray Richmond, at Deadline:
… Chris Rock has famously riffed on gun control in his own stand-up comedy act, ranting that there should be no restriction on guns, but bullets ought to cost $5,000 apiece. “The gun lobby also says people need to be able to protect their property,” Rock said, “but every mass shooting is done by guys who live with their mother. So I believe you should need to have a mortgage to buy a gun. A mortgage is a real background check. Even if you go to jail for 30 years, you’ve still got to pay your fucking mortgage.”..
Of course, the skeptics will say that the process of obtaining a mortgage might drive more people into rage-induced shootouts, but then, after the inevitable closing-ceremony “surprise” where the bank somehow discovers one last essential several-thousand-dollar lien/license/fee without which the whole process must be called off, very few people will be able to afford the bullets.
Apart from “manhood cards”, what’s on the agenda for the start of the weekend?
