Clearly, the question regarding aliens is merely a tongue-in-cheek reference to science fiction, but the cold, hard fact is that NASA made the request on the Federal Business Online website for five AR-15 rifles.

It seems that even rocket scientists know a good firearm when they see it. Too bad too many politicians don’t want you to have them. Plus, why do they need a 30 round clip? According to our lawmakers, 10 rounds should be more than enough.
And if the history is any evidence of the future – expect an ungodly amount of ammunition to be purchased – thus draining the supply from the average gun owner.
