In response to the latest in a series of growing public backlash to the NRA's public relations gaffs (most recently due to its lobbying efforts and reaction to its website's published enemy hit-list of celebrities, religious organizations, and handicapped buddhist monks) the NRA has declared itself as the nation's newest political party.
A spokesperson said that being able to introduce legislative bills directly would eliminate the expense and efforts of lobbying. It would also eliminate the need to apologize for its routine and publicly embarrassing statements, instead declaring that its approval rating is higher than the public's 17% rating of the other members in Congress.
As a political end-run tactic around the growing ranks of gun control advocates, the NRA's first law and order bill to be introduced into Congress would expand the second amendment to include the legal proliferation of unregistered Weapons of Mass Destruction in private citizen's possession.
"If our enemies are successful in taking away the guns that we sleep with, then at least we'll be able to exercise our natural, divinely granted rights of self defense using nukes and nerve agent gas, as well as chemical and biological weapons." said the chief spokesperson.
While labeling of the bill as the Peacemaker Bill, the NRA has already declared those opposing the bill as un-American, spineless weenies who would be placed on the organization's enemy hit list.
