Here’s An Idea

Adding on from my previous post about the Umpqua Community College Shooting at Oregon, here’s an idea –

How about we treat every young man who wants to buy a gun like every woman who wants to get an abortion – mandatory 48 hour waiting period, parental permission, a note from his doctor proving he understands what he’s about to do, a video ha has to watch about the effects of gun violence, an ultrasound wand up his..you know what I mean.

Let’s close down all but one gun shop in every sate and make him travel hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun. Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun.

It makes more sense to do this with young men and guns than with women and health care, right? I mean, no woman getting an abortion has killed a room full of people in seconds.
