IIRC, some clown in the Pacific Northwest, maybe Seattle, said that or something like it without any sarcastic intent not too long ago. I believe he said guns are WMD.
Gettin' close... Latest Democrat Extremism: Guns Are Weapons of Mass DestructionDefenders of the Second Amendment are on the lookout for a new Democrat campaign, already attempted in one state, to brand handguns as weapons of mass destruction. Washington Gov. Gary Locke, picked by the Democrats to give their response President Bushs State of the Union address just a couple of months ago, urged his state's Legislature to create six terror-related crimes that would bring guns under the legal definition of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
Though the legislation offered by the governor and Attorney General Christine Gregoire did not mention specific weapons, Join Together Online, an anti-gun group, reported the legislation defined a weapon of mass destruction as a device, object, or substance that a person intends to use to cause multiple human deaths.
Here is how the Seattle Times on March 15 led its story on how the Legislature dealt with the issue: An anti-terrorism bill has spurred a debate among lawmakers: Is a gun a weapon of mass destruction?
Woe is me. I didn't remember correctly, but it's close enough for gov't work. I believe that's the story. Gary Locke is not a white devil, but that Jointogetheronline.com is close enough. It's not like I got Alzheimer's disease.
