Just a few weeks after 55-year-old charter boat captain William Allen Kruse was hired by BP to help with the oil spill cleanup that threatened his livelihood and community, he killed himself. A deckhand who worked for Kruse said working as one of BP's "vessels of opportunity" was a stressful and confusing experience. "We're helping cover up the lie," a 27-year-old colleague of Kruse told The Washington Post. "We're burying ourselves. We're helping them cover up the lie that's putting us out of work."

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.
Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.
Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
