Pools Kill

Looks like the folks in New York State are in for some trouble, because local town officials in Massena, NY are demanding people erect fences and put alarms on inflatable pools.  I think this is a fine idea.  Pools kill far more kids each year than guns, and if I have to lock up my guns, they should have to lock up their pools!  Don’t these parents know that having a pool more than doubles the risk of your family experiencing a drowning accident?  If we’re going to be ridiculous, we might as well go whole hog.

    Are these pools properly registered?

  2. Sebastian says:

    Probably not. Clearly they should be! How else can police track the source of the pool when kids drown in it?

  3. jones says:

    Why do these people even NEED a pool?

  4. Sebastian says:

    Very good point Jones. In this modern era of air conditioning and video games, pretty clearly there’s no earthly reason why anyone should have a pool.

    Are these pool owners properly trained in lifeguard techniques?

    When I bought my house I moved in all my guns, and then the next weekend demolished the crappy above ground pool and tossed it in a dumpster.

    I had my priorites straight ; ]

    If people want to be in a body of water like that, they should join the Navy.

    Well I sure hope each pools’ water is chemically fingerprinted and entered into a data base.

    Funniest comments I’ve read in while!

    We don’t have to ban pools if we can ban water!

  11. Sebastian says:

    Wait, better yet… we can ration water. No more than 100 gallons a month!

  12. Sebastian says:

    That’s 1200 gallons a year! Who would need more than 1200 gallons a year?

    Lets see, I spouted off some lame points, did no work, solved nothing; but I can feel like I did something “for the children.”

    I can see why moonbats stay moonbats. All I need to do now is go jump in Lake Superior and I’ll be Rosie O’Donnel.
