I can agree with the article.

I'd add that in general,, Americans believe the Margaret Thatcher motto "There is no alternative"

It's nonsense, of course, but they accept it. They've forgotten the "People's History" in this country. It isn't taught and we don't have an oral tradition to pass it on..

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

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.
