    Attention Legislators! Want to ban something? Just click here!

    As we all know, the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 has been given the rubber stamp of approval by the US Supreme Court. Thanks to their complete inability to comprehend what the commerce clause of the United States Consitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3) means, you now have free reign to ban anything and everything you could have ever wanted from any location desired. Simply fill out this form, which will then utilize the bullet-proof layout of the GFSZA to instantly produce the legislation needed to legally implement your ban today!

    This is the third time in my life I have ever written Javascript, it may not work in your browser. It works in Google Chrome (100%) and Internet Explorer (95%, refreshing the page does not reset the form; you have to use your back button). As to firefox, opera, and/or safari.... I dunno, let me know. I spent a couple hours this afternoon putting this together after I did a thought exercise of my own reading the GFSZA and replacing "firearm" with "cowboy hat" in my head. I can't imagine the framers of the constitution ever could have intended for the commerce clause to be used in this way.. I always thought it was just to prevent 1 state from imposing a tariff on goods from another state or something of that sort.

    I showed this to my wife and she didn't get it 100%, so let me explain. I guess my point is this:

    If you take the GFSZA and re-word it to be about cowboy hats, and how you better not have one on you unless you're on your way across the schools property to go dog walking; the law would never pass. Aside from being inane, it would violate the 1st amendment and everybody would up in arms over it.

    But you take the GFSZA which restricts possession of another completely legal to posses item (which is also protected under the Constitution, just like cowboy hats are), and it's A-O-K in the court's eyes.

    This gives a whole new meaning to MADD Libs. (pun)

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
