Personally, for my own protection (and maybe some really big game hunting), I want an atomic bomb.
After all, the National Rifle Association and many in Congress believe the Second Amendment gives me the unmitigated right to “bear arms.” And, as you might recall, in the treaty acronyms SALT and START, the “A” does indeed stand for “Arms.”
To paraphrase NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, the only way to stop a bad guy with an atomic bomb is for a good guy to have an atomic bomb.
I should point out, as a law-abiding citizen, I have never killed anyone with an atomic bomb. So why the heck can’t I have one?
Furthermore, to be on the safe side, let’s make sure every elementary school teacher, trained in proper detonation, has one stashed under her desk.
Oh yeah, those first few words of the Second Amendment — “A well regulated” — must have been a typo.
