MUCKVILLE, January 21, 2013 - The mayor and city council of Muckville have passed an ordinance that will limit Muckville’s citizens  to one bullet.

“You can have all the guns you want,” says Willie Harden, mayor. “But you’re only allowed to have one bullet at any time. The Sheriff will be confiscating all ammunition, except for one bullet per gun owner.”

The city council plans to set up a “bullet bank” to be administered  by Sheriff Ben Dover. Should residents fire their one bullet, they may come in to the bullet bank, where for a small fee and the return of the spent shell casing receive another bullet of the same caliber.

Opponents of the ordinance have pointed out that in cases involving multiple assailants, the bullet owner would be at a disadvantage. In response to those concerns, the council is considering limiting illegal activity to one perpetrator per incident.

“That would only be fair.” said councilwoman Constance Belcher.
