Florida Moves To Ban Bull Nuts

floridacarsMotorists in Florida may soon be banned from hanging fake bull nuts to accessorize their vehicles. In Reuters yesterday:

“Senate lawmakers in Florida have voted to ban the fake bull testicles that dangle from the trailer hitches of many trucks and cars throughout the state.

Republican Sen. Cary Baker, a gun shop owner from Eustis, Florida, called the adornments offensive and proposed the ban. Motorists would be fined $60 for displaying the novelty items, which are known by brand names like “Truck Nutz” and resemble the south end of a bull moving north…”

No worries, big guys! The gun-shop-owner/bill’s-sponsor doubts this piece of legislation will actually make it through. After all, if you have the right to own a gun and go hunting, you should also have the right to show off your balls!
