Loose Cannon Shows Up at Annual NRA Meeting

A cannon that had been reported missing for a few days showed up just in time to become a spectacle at the annual NRA meeting in St. Louis this past weekend.

NRA loose cannon“We were worried,” said Andy Jackson, a heavy artillery weapons specialist who was at the convention selling everything from flak jackets to rocket launchers.

“This thing has been known to go off without provocation, and we needed to get it back into our hands before it did some serious damage. That, and the fact that just about everyone here has come out to see it,” purred Jackson while lovingly stroking the returned loose cannon.

“This here’s my favorite weapon, bar none, and I was so relieved that it was returned to us virtually unscratched,” said the weapons dealer.

Adding, “I just love the sound it makes when it gets fired up and shoots off its rounds.”
