NRA members fail new "sanity test" for gun ownership, threaten to violently overthrow government
WASHINGTON, D.C. –- On Sunday, President Hillary Rodham Clinton faced threats of armed insurrection from gun nuts across the country after signing into a law a bill that requires Americans to pass “sanity test” before being able to purchase firearms.
The test includes questions that aim to establish respondents' base mental state, such as:
"What does 2+2 equal?" (Answer: 4)
"Have you ever physically or sexually abused your spouse, children, or parents?" (Answer: No)
“Who is president of the United States of America?” (Answer: Hillary Rodham Clinton)
Though the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms conceived the test as a "common sense measure" to reduce the tens of thousands of deaths caused by firearms each year, it's being criticized by the National Rifle Association as "insanely hard" after thousands of NRA members failed it in large numbers.
In an interview on CNN this morning, Wayne LaPierre—executive vice president of the pro-gun lobbying group—revealed that he too had failed the test. “The test is prejudiced. It is aimed at keeping Republicans from owning guns,” LaPierre whined before arguing that fully loaded automatic rifles should be handed out with every ticket in movie theatres.
Gun experts expect the new mandate to significantly cut back on gun crimes in 2017.
