… but you CAN still buy guns at liquor stores on the side of the highway, so …
At this point, it's completely viable to think the entire world has fallen off their rockers. That Jack Kerouac might have been wrong in saying the only ones for him are mad, because he likely failed to take into consideration it's everyone, everyone who's nutty-nutty-coo-coo.
Nothing makes sense and we're going to die confused.
In America, right now, 2016, it's legal (in some states) to purchase guns from the same store that sells you alcohol. Yet, a U.S. federal court has upheld a ban on sales of weapons to medical marijuana card holders. You know, the people probably least likely to even want to shoot a gun at someone else for fear of 'tearing the fabric of peace barely clinging onto the jagged corner of the planet.' Or too busy 'Netflix and Eating.'
What its ruled, is that even if you are assumed to be a weed smoker, based off of your MMJ status, you can't own guns. Your Second Amendment right is invalid at this point.
Note: Guns and alcohol collectively killed more than 100,000 Americans last year. We digress …
This all came to be from a 2011 lawsuit filed by S. Rowan Wilson, a woman in Nevada that tried to purchase a glock, or rifle, or whatever, after she received her medical marijuana card. The store refused to sell it to her, citing the rule of selling firearms to illegal drug users. Weed, in all its glory, is still considered a Schedule I drug on a federal level and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has told gun sellers they can assume someone is a user based off of their legal status.
In the 3-0 decision, the judges agreed.
Likewise, they claim the ruling is "reasonable" because the use of marijuana “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated,” said Senior District Judge Jed Rakoff.
Honestly, we're speechless. And everyone else should be too. There isn't a pretty enough four-letter word to describe how severe our collective heads are spinning. This is all a big joke, we're sure of it.
Judge Rakoff and friends, we leave you only with this highly appropriate meme that's designed poorly but to be enjoyed ironically …
