Found this on my Facebook feed – makes total sense to me:
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
- Make him watch a video about the effects of gun violence
Then we close down all gun shops we can, so he has to travel hundreds of miles, take time off from work, just to get a gun. He’ll have to walk through gauntlets of people holding photos of loved ones who got killed in mass shootings. They’ll call him a murderer, beg him not to buy a gun, just because he is there.
It makes more sense to do this with gun buyers than with abortion seekers. No woman seeking an abortion has ever killed a room full of people in seconds.
