South Carolina State Rep. Bill Chumley pre-filed a bill requiring retailers to install porn-blocking filters on computers sold in the state. However, Rep. Chumley added a part to the bill so the state would profit from people's porn use:

Somebody in there with a means of self-defense could've stopped this."
