South Dakota Republican wants to make gun ownership mandatory...

Some Republican cracker in South Dakota wants to pass a bill at the state level making gun ownership mandatory. Care to place any bets as to whether this same cracker supports the legal challenge to the Health Care Law on the grounds that the Federal Government has no right to mandate health insurance? OK, the constitutional issues are different, but the idea that someone with normal synapses in his brain can think it's a good idea to force people to have guns, but not a good idea to make sure everyone has health insurance, just boggles.

UPDATE:  I was punked on this one, by not reading all the way to the end (always dangerous). The bill is a stunt, to make the health care mandate seem outré. Actually, the rationale is full of holes, but I will leave that as self-evident.
