SARDONIKA (SPINews) --- Members of the Sardonikan Congress expressed amusement today over the furor surrounding the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision to void a gun ban in Chicago.
"You gotta laugh," said Minority Leader Max McMulligan. "We are so advanced on that issue. Here, bearing arms is not just a right or a privilege, but a legal requirement for all Sardonikans above the age of 11."
Along with the Right to Bear Grudges, Sardonika's version of America's Second Amendment is the backbone of its constitution and culture.
Every citizen on the island is armed to the teeth with bazookas, mortars, Uzis, Glocks, Gattling guns, howitzers, rocket-propelled grenades and improvised explosive devices.
McMulligan went on to explain that the constitutional provision is modeled after the Cold War's succesful policy of Mutually Assured Destruction.
"If your neighbor rips off your HDTV, you WILL rain down upon him heavy munitions and upon his family and his cat," he said. "And vice versa."
"MAD works. The crime rate is astonishingly low and, most important, we all feel safe," said President Ruttles in a memo released from his fortified bunker.In a related story, the International Association of Arms Merchants announced it's annual Kaboomapalooza Feeding Frenzy will once again be held in the Sardonika Convention Center this fall.
