Licenses for dangerous things

We need gun laws in this country to ensure people who are given control over dangerous things are responsible and held accountable if something goes wrong. Today, Mark Kelly has shown us all that he is not responsible enough to own a military style assault dog.

Clearly anyone who is so irresponsible with such a dangerous weapon has no business owning one. I support a 30 day waiting period before owning such a dangerous weapon. Further, no American needs such a ferocious and deadly animal. Clearly only a deranged lunatic would want such an animal. If you want a furry companion, just get a hamster. A hamster is a perfectly adequate pet.

No child has ever been mauled by a hamster. How this man can be so reckless and irresponsible as to have a dangerous, unlicensed animal like this around his family is beyond reason. We will also need to restrict people from owning pets like this without extensive training and licensing. Nor should anyone need more than one such animal. Look, I am only suggesting rational controls to make sure this doesn't happen to a child somewhere. Imagine the damage he could have wrought if he had released this dog in an elementary school. How many dead children will there have to be before we take reasonable precautions to prevent this kind of tragedy from unfolding?

I would happily support a license and background check for everyone prior to having kids. Imagine the minimal levels of poverty if those who couldnt have kids werent able to get a license and therefore were given contraception until they reapplied 2 years later.

Good post, Duffy. You bring up the hypocrisy of the gun control movement well. I also hope the owner of the resort Kelly and Giffords are staying at sues them.

It'd also be hilarious if they got sued by a group like the Sierra Club or Greenpeace.
