Medicare Guns and Ammo

this has to be one of the stranger ideas i've seen in a long time: there is a company out and about that has created a pistol that can be used by people who have severe issues with arthritis, limited strength, etc, for using a gun.

this, i don't have a problem with. well, ok, i do, only mildly-so, but probably not for the reason you might be thinking.

now, though, we get to the fun part: the manufacturer wants the 9mm handgun to be treated as a medical device covered by medicare...

yes, you heard right. a doctor-prescribed medical device. your government paying for a gun, using medicare dollars.

sometimes i find it difficult to believe i can't make this kind of crap up.

eeeehaaa, little doggies.
