If vibrators also fired bullets, they'd be protected under 2nd Amendment
In a discussion in GD about "sexual minority lifestyles" just now I found out that possession a/o sale of sexual toys is criminal in some states. Obviously this is a huge violation of the right to privacy which John Roberts doesn't think exists (which is crap since right to privacy is simply a logical corrollary to protections against unlawful search and seizure).
So I was thinking about this, and it occurred to me that if you want to legalize sex toys everywhere and extend to their owners the full constitutional protection to which they're due, all you really have to do is reengineer them a little bit so that vibrators, penis rings, and other snap-on implements of personal pleasure can also fire bullets. They don't have to be accurate and they don't even have to be loaded to then fully qualify for absolute protection under the Second Amendment.
Now you might be thinking that building sexual toys capable of being loaded with bullets and firing them might just lead to a few horrible, tragic deaths each year. But you know what? Caveat emptor, I say. We have numerous firearm related accidents in this country every year and nobody seems to mind. People just have to be careful, that's all. As Thomas Jefferson said, "Eternal vigilence is the price of liberty."
they could be chambered for a new round that does not exist, and be made without firing pins. The upfront investment in product development is a bit more, but in the end isn't it the toy that keeps giving and giving?
it's only actual crime =victims who have been denied their day in court....
"the assholes who think they can sue S&W, etc., because someone ILLEGALLY used one of their products to kill someone else." Which they ought to be able to....good thing corrupt Republicans stomped on that freedom.....NOT.
18. Gee, you mean you thought that was a serious proposal?
That IS fucked.
"I should think that you, especially, would consider something that fires bullets to be a lethal device." Not only that, I think the corrupt industry that distributes things that fire bullets in such an irresponsible and dishonest manner ought to be sued out of existence.
In the mall here, we have a store called "Spencer's Gifts." The popular off-colour chain sells a large collection of joke items, including vibrators and other... toys. However, marketing the toys as "muscle massagers," the store gets away selling them not only in a public space -without a back room- but also to minors. A friend of mine quit when his boss forced him to ring up an 11 year-old girl with a vibrator.
In reality any such device would be regulated by Federal law and subject to heavy restrictions, approval of the local Chief of Police and an intensive background check by the BATF.
The bullet dildo/cockring/butt plug would be classified as an AOW (Any Other Weapon), under the 1934 National Firearms Act... the same law that regulates machine guns, grenade launchers and short barreled shotguns.
While I like the idea of a .45 caliber-purple-headed-knobbed-gelatin double-dong, it just ain't gonna happen.
