We have more than 8,000 nuclear warheads in the USA

The cost of maintaining these weapons is 640 billion over the next 10 years.

I propose that we auction off the warheads to private citizens to own and maintain. The owners would need to be licensed from the state and trained in the proper care, storage, and use of the warheads. We could set up nuclear ranges where individuals could safely detonate the warheads so as to not harm anyone.

What do you think?

2. Do they make anyone feel safer?

 

Or would we feel safer with Medicare for All?
