Michael Geer addresses "the logic of the Left."
No current data is available. Or, bluntly - 3,325 every day of the year in 2008, meaning 139 innocent lives every hour. Or, 5.3 Newtown catastrophes every hour for an entire year, round the clock. Clearly sexual congress must be outlawed since it can lead to the death of an innocent child. Because it's all about the children, isn't it?
My head can't wrap around the logic of the Left shouting for law-abiding, well mannered, adult American citizens - from whom the government derives its right to govern - to have their 2nd Amendment weapons forcibly taken from them when the same political crowd not only endures the staggering volume of termination of innocent life on a scale that would make Hitler cringe, but glories in it.
Tell you what. The Left gives up Roe v. Wade, renounces it and never again goes near the question of abortion and I will afterwards agree to a "national conversation" about the 2nd Amendment and what it really meant to the Framers. They go first. That will signal their sincerity. Absolute constitutional rejection and elimination of abortion.
What's that? Getting rid of abortion will cause needless death and anguish? It's a woman's right to protect her body from others who don't have the right to tell her how to preserve and defend her sovereignty, especially as pertains to her safety and well being?
You don't say.
