NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – House Democratic Caucus Leader Mike Stewart set up a lemonade stand on a corner of Tennessee’s Capitol Hill early Wednesday that featured a newly purchased assault rifle to show how easy it is to buy a gun. But a few hours later, his bill to try and change that did not sway Republican colleagues. The lawmaker said he brought the knock-off AK-47 assault rifle in a parking lot after finding a seller on the Internet. There were no takers for the gun, the lemonade, or some cookies that were also for sale at the stand.
He should have offered Famous Amos cookies.
I swear, I am NOT making this up!
When it comes to bizarre political showmanship, you can't beat the Democrats.
I tried to set up a lemonade stand in front of my home when I was 10 years old. No takers.
There were no AK-47 rifles available then, but I suspect I still wouldn't have any buyers.
If you're a Democrat, you have to be over 50 years old before you learn the same lesson.
