Banjo Rights

Linus van Pelt once said that the world would be a better place if everyone was issued a banjo at birth.

So here's my thought...

Abolish the NRA. Replace it with the National Banjo Association. Make it easy for people to get banjos without a background check. Sponsor unregulated banjo shows. Create a class of high-paid banjo lobbyists.

Some say (some say!) that people should need a license to operate a banjo in the same way they need a license to drive a car. I disagree.

Some people just like to take their banjo to a picking range. And as citizens they have that right. It's a social thing. They don't want to hurt anyone with their banjo. They just get off on making noise and hitting a target note. And they always wear proper hearing protection.

There's got to be an amendment somewhere that can be twisted enough to apply to banjos.

As far as I know, there has never been a mass murder committed by someone holding a banjo.
