When a soccer match ends in a city-wide riot, Homer buys a handgun to protect his family and joins the NRA. However, Marge does not like this and pleads with Homer to get rid of the gun. Homer promises to do so, but Bart finds it the next day in the vegetable crisper.
Fearing for their lives, Marge whisks herself and the kids away to a seedy motel. Homer hosts the next NRA meeting, but shocks the other members when he reveals that he uses his gun as a can opener, and to turn on the TV. He is kicked out of the society.
Homer turns up at the motel to apologize to Marge, but when Mayor Quimby is taken hostage, he produces the gun again and saves the day. Marge is annoyed that Homer lied to her, and so Homer asks Marge to get rid of the gun for him.
