NEW YORK - The National Vuvuzela Association announced today that it would be opposing the Vuvuzela Registration Act in a multi-paragraph rant posted to the Daily Blower online magazine.
The NVA stated in their opinion piece that, "Facts tell us that criminalizing private transfers of Vuvuzelas among family members and friends under a universal background check and registration system would do nothing to prevent 'Vuvuzela Sounds' at soccer games across North America. And importantly, would not have prevented the profound tragedy of South Africa that Vuvuzela banners use to promote such a system."
Supporters of the Vuvuzela Registration Act state that having a national registry and prohibitions about the use and ownership of said items would prevent future stadium tragedies where someone brings a Vuvuzela and annoys the living shit out of the entire crowd.
The Nutmeg News spoke with NVA spokesman Wayne La Pear about this bill and he had the following to say, "Perpetrators of those acts either successfully passed background checks to get the Vuvuzelas or they stole the Vuvuzelas, or they were given them by the team front office in some horrible promotion gone wrong. Whether the initial proposal includes a government registry of Vuvuzela transfers or Vuvuzlea owners, that's the end game."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the debate rages on.
