The cast: Your Correspondent and A Semi-Random Stranger.
On the TV: a news story about The Post-Election Rush To Buy Guns.
Stranger: "I don't see why they are in such hurry -- even if the President makes a law against guns, Congress still has to approve it! It'll take months."
Me: (boggling, wondering where do I begin?) "Er, unh, I guess they don't want to miss out...?"
D00d, here:Please to note at which point in the process the Prez gets involved. Thang Kew.
