New Senate Bill Bans Only Weapons Used In Crimes

New Senate Bill Bans Only Weapons Used In Crimes
Background information on guns is readily available thanks to the cooperation of retail outlets.

WASHINGTON (CAP) - A new bill introduced in the Senate takes a drastically different approach to gun control by applying some of the same criteria to semi-automatic weapons as to criminal behavior itself, a compromise both sides of the aisle could agree on.

"Bill S.150a applies a level of personification ramification justification to gun control," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). "Guns, like people, need to be innocent until proven guilty."

Under the new legislation, an assault weapon will only be banned from legal sale in the United States if that weapon has been proven to be used in the commission of a crime.

For cases where trial is pending, the identified weapon will be placed on suspension and the public will be asked to refrain from using that weapon until its fate is determined.

"There are many makes and models of guns that have never been used to commit a crime," said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). "It is unAmerican to punish those guns - and by extension, gun manufacturers and gun owners - for a crime that has not taken place.

"If a Pit Bull mauls a child, do we ban every dog in the country?" Graham added. "No, we punish the guilty Pit Bull, not the thousands of dogs making thousands of children happy every day."

A previous version of the legislation had recommended a so-called three-strike rule to be implemented for assault weapons, but it was removed in a later iteration of the bill when ranking Republicans protested the use of a baseball euphemism in a non-sports scenario.

"Three strikes means that at least three people would likely die before anything is done," said Feinstein. "For this measure to be effective, we really need to take decisive action after the first person is killed."

A House version of the bill offers a slightly different solution by leaving current gun laws intact but requiring those purchasing ammunition to sign a waiver stating they understand the risks associated with owning a weapon and that they promise to be very careful.

    After suggesting that learning a trade is a better career choice than an art history degree, President Obama has offered his apologies by delivering coffee and doughnuts to unemployed art history majors. "Chin up, my jobless friends," he said. "This country needs more baristas who can wax poetic about Rembrandt." «» The man whose job it is to hold the 'applause' sign to queue audience members during President Obama's speeches is demanding a pay raise. "My arms still hurt from the State of the Union," Fritz Gorman said. "And I swear Joe Biden just claps whenever he feels like it. Loser." «» Former first lady Hillary Clinton admitted to CAP News that she hasn't showered since 1996, a defensive mechanism she used to keep Bill away. "It was rough smelling that ripe for so long," she said. "But now that I'm 66, I use old lady perfume and that shit masks everything." «» Following his assertion that marijuana is no worse than alcohol, President Obama continued his comparison crusade by suggesting that eating gizzards is no worse than eating chitlins. "Cooked stomach or cooked intestine: what's the difference? They both taste like ass," he noted. "Black people need to do better than that." «» Researchers at MIT have finished calculating President Obama's approval rating, which they say can be obtained by use of the imaginary number i. "We all learned about the square root of negative one in school," said one mathematician. "But to find it applied in the real world is truly spectacular." «» Liz Cheney has announced that despite her carnal desires to continue pushing, she has decided to pull out. While most family members were tight-lipped over the announcement, sister Mary said she didn't think Liz "ever had it in her to begin with" and was likely faking the entire time. «» A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds President Obama's approval rating has soared to the highest of his presidency among deaf Americans following his speech at Nelson Mandela's memorial service. The sign language interpreter at the service was reportedly "signing gibberish" but clearly what he was signing resonated with deaf Americans. «» Following word that he's leaving the Republican Party, Sen. Ted Cruz has announced that he's also leaving the Hispanic race for an ethnicity to be named later. "Time to try my hand at a new race, or even start my own," Cruz said. "I wish Hispanics all the best, though." «» The White House denies rumors that President Obama is using the powers of the NSA to monitor daughter Malia's phone calls. "I am totally not picking up another line, covering the mouth piece, and listening when boys call her," Obama said. "I much prefer to eavesdrop through her bedroom door." «» President Obama was caught hitting on a pregnant woman during a speech in the White House Rose Garden yesterday when she swooned and fell lovingly into his arms. "Talking about Obamacare does have that effect on women," said an aide. "The whole thing had this weird Scandal vibe to it." «»
