Democrats are in a contest for who can submit the most ridiculous bills.

I have bought ammo after work before picking up my children from school, because it's easier to run into a shop without them. This bill would make me a criminal for doing that, despite the fact I wouldn't even have a firearm with me and would leave it in my car.
