NRA to sponsor free two-day clinic for toddlers regarding the proper use of assault weapons.

Dothan, AL — A 17-month old toddler wielding an assault rifle opened fire today in the nursery of the Southeast Alabama Medical Center, killing 12 infants and wounding six more before two nurses wrestled the weapon from the child and put him in time out.

According to video surveillance, the diaper-clad assassin entered the hospital with his father at 9:32 a.m. The pair walked through the lobby without incident and boarded the elevator to the maternity ward, where the child’s mother had given birth to his sister the day before.

While acknowledging that the Sandy Hook tragedy should be motivation enough to begin putting modest gun control reforms in place — universal background checks, for example — Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), speaking for his GOP colleagues, said, “When 6, 7, 8 — heck, when 9 year olds die at the hand of some deranged psycho nutjob, we must act to prevent such heinous crimes from happening in the future.”
