Following accident, NRA member has gun pried out of his cold, dead hands

14 Apr

LAWRENCEBURG, Tennessee—fulfilling an oft-stated request, friends of the late Bill Chesterson, lifetime NRA member, pried the gun out of his cold, dead hands here yesterday, a few hours after he accidentally shot himself while checking his ammunition.

“Bill always said that we could have his gun if we did it this way,” said his longtime associate Dave Oxley. “To tell the truth, he seemed pretty insistent on it. So I guess we just felt it was the right thing to do.”

According to witnesses, prying out the gun was surprisingly difficult. They finally released the weapon, a Glock 19 handgun, only after a blue-helmeted stranger wearing arrived in a black helicopter and gave them some pointers, saying he had done this “plenty of times.”

    I like the people who got on their grandstand after the recent knife attack at the school, likening it to the gun control argument and saying, “should we ban knives now?” I agree, the situation would have been much better if all those hormonal teens had been packing heat when the kid with the knife came in. We may even have had some casualties…although I doubt it would have been the guy with the knife. :/
