‘Compromise’ gun bill mooted in Washington

WASHINGTON (Rooters agency) – The National Weapons Association and its supporters in Congress have indicated support for legislation that they think may defuse the country’s debate over gun laws.

“It’s a compromise we could live with,” said Barry Bogus III, president of the NWA, referring to a draft bill, being circulated in Washington, which would impose certain conditions on weapons sales.

After the latest schoolroom slaughter, this one in Texas, President Ronald Dump said he was “determined to do everything in my power to protect our students,” adding that he has “no power because of the Democratic witch-hunt about Russia collusion which never was except Democrats.”

The draft bill claims to fill the gap by specific legislative requirements. Although it was drafted by a member of Congress who prefers to remain anonymous, some observers have attributed it to Senator Texas Crude, who was one of the first off the mark after the latest shooting to announce his “prayers” for the victims, regardless of their political party.

If the draft bill were to become law, anyone could buy a gun of any kind but when doing so would be required to sign a declaration of their “thoughts and prayers” for anyone later killed or wounded with the weapon.

House of Representatives Speaker Parlous Rant said he thought the bill “merited consideration,” but he was concerned that the bill “could upstage political leaders’ comments on future massacres.”
