National Ammo Day and the elections

We've got less than a week before we get a chance to vote for who our next Governor is. The main candidates are still current Gov. Rick "Good Hair" Perry, current Comptroller "Grandma" Carole Keeton Stayhorn-Rylander-Smith-Kline-Barney, Congresscritter Chris Bell (D-Houston), and singer-novelist Kinky Friedman. There's also a poor Libertarian making a stab at it, just so they can stay on the ballots in Texas for the next elections. I think Kinky's got everybody scared that he just might win, or at least get enough votes that they won't. There's the point that Perry's campaign was scaring sportmen with Kinky's old anti-hunting stance, which the Kinkster had rescinded (the press release is in his site's FAQs; warning: it's a PDF file). There's the next point that Chris Bell left a message on Kinky's answering machine asking him to consider dropping out of the race! Jeez Louise! That's as dumb as the convict writing a threatening letter to the judge from his jail cell demanding that he be released or else, then closing by saying he'll deny writing that letter if the judge reveals it to anybody else!

Phoenix posted before I could about this next item: National Ammo Day. It's the brainchild of Kim du Toit, a proud US citizen and Texan of South African birth and adamant gun owner. He feels like all the gun owners across the US buying 100 rounds of ammo on the same day (which adds up to over one billion rounds in private ownership) will send a message to business owners and the politicians, that gun owners are here, and we will be ready if they pass any funny laws to tax gun owners into submission (since they haven't yet figured out how to ban them outright); until that day, we're acting upon a Constitutional Right and a legal business transaction.
