Legitimize the government,...or else!


This is a remarkable way to encourage civic engagement. I think we should institute fines for anyone not exercising all of their Constitutionally protected rights.

A fine of $20 per year for not exercising the right to keep and bear arms is in order.

Of course, as in voting, no record of how one exercised that right could be maintained; no record of who you voted for, no firearm registration.

Hmm… and if we can vote by mail, then we should be able to buy guns by mail again. I think Haskell is on to something here.

Of course, seeing with whom he hangs, I doubt that he'll see this our way.

(Note to the sarcasm-challenged: This is sarcasm. I'm pointing out the hypocritical way different rights are viewed. I am not advocating for fines.)
