Tongue in cheek attempt by a legislator to

Require all adults over the age of 21 to buy a firearm in the interests of self defense and the defense of others less fortunate.

Replace firearm with health insurance and defense with health and you get obamacare. Now explain to me why we shouldn't require people to have guns for self defense.

Because if my child gets my health insurance card out of my wallet, it's not going to blow their face off.

I can't be arsed to find it, but I saw a similar joke about a restaurant that wanted to combat the city's "no smoking" ordinance by passing a law that would make smoking mandatory in bars.
