The National Rifle Association has announced that it is facing a severe funding crisis and that it may not be able to continue to exist. On hearing the sad news, Democrats across the nation pledged to give the gun-advocacy group tangible assistance to avert that unpleasant fate.
“Get ready for millions of thoughts and prayers coming your way.”
They said they initially thought of sending money or passing legislation to reduce the risk of the NRA being hit by stray lawsuits, but then remembered what the NRA and its traditional supporters had taught them about the right course of action.
“Thought and prayers are the appropriate response in the face of existential threats. Sorry we almost forgot.”
Another thought they had was that the NRA should focus on highlighting all of the children of its employees who will suffer if it ceases operation.
“That’s surely worth another few hundred thousand thoughts and prayers at least.”
