Good news, potential suicides!

The NRA, having essentially won the battle over the 2nd Amendment with Heller and the recent Chicago handgun ban ruling, is hard at work concocting ways to justify their continued existence. Mostly, it appears, by backing increasingly insane gun-rights minutiae.

To wit, there is now a proposal in Congress ("Supported by the National Rifle Association!!") to exempt personal firearms from bankruptcy. So they can garnish your paycheck, take your house, and drain your savings but you'll still have the opportunity to blow your brains out and/or commit acts of violence out of desperation.

I feel better.
