Wayne LaPierre No Go On Space Disarmament


By George E. Pourgi  CPW News Services
      Wayne LaPierre, President of the National Rifle Association or NRA, has challenged his members not to support an international ban on assault weapons on  commercial space stations.  The proposal for a total ban on assault wepons is in response to concerns that future space travelers may want to take over a commercial space station as a jihadist outpost.

     “It stands to reason that if  jihadists hijack airplanes that they will want to hijack a Virgin Gallactic or SpaceX space station sometime in the near or distant future and there is no reason to give them access to space weaponry if they plan to shoot up a space station,” said Myrtle Crepe of SSFOG, Space Stations Free of Guns, a Melbourne, Florida peace activist group.
     “I can’t figure out what Mr. LaPierre’s angle is on this deal.   Who’s going to blast away on a space station with an AR-15 or AK-47 knowing that when the ship’s skin is pierced it’s bye bye baby?” asked Crepe.

     NRA member Zoe Spurmata of Las Vegas, Nevada said that he believes that unloading a wad of high powered  bullets, especially armor piercing bullets,  in a commercial space station that may not have the same quality of construction standards as those produced by sovereign nations is a guarantee of  total implosion of the pressurized zero gravity and air tight refuge.
     “If Mr. LaPierre is not willing to ban assault weapons in space, then I’d like to have him tell us how we can get the bodies of future space travelers back home to their loved ones for a decent burial,” said Spurmata.

     Hearing Mr. Spurmata’s concerns for total space disarmament Col. E.M. Bolmer, of Arlington National Cemetery and Reginald Ford Meldehyde of the American Society of Embalmers and Cemetery Proprietors has joined SSFOG in calling for a total ban on space weapons.   “We have something of a bifurcated policy on gun bans, said Mr. Meldehyde.   “On earth where bodies gunned down in drive by shootings, robberies, terrorist attacks, or simple domestic disputes over Grandma’s nagging to a husband’s discovery that his wife is in bed with the plumber, the recovery of bodies for burial is no major problem.  We do that every day and it is such a comfort for the family to know that their loved one will be responsibly, tastefully and reverently interred for a minor fee that is often covered by insurance.    When it comes to a gun blast in a space station with the ensuing implosion and bodies strewn across the galaxy there is no opportunity for the kind of closure that our funeral services can yield for a grieving family.  Therefore we implore Mr. LaPierre to reconsider his ill-advised policy that makes sense in some circumstances, but not in others,” said Mr. Meldeyhde.  "We are asking people to write or call Wayne LaPierre to register your concern that he back our arms embargo for commercial space stations by contacting him by phone or mail," said Meldehyde.    He can be reached at  at:
