Wait wait wait. The ruling only says that the company doesn’t have to pay for a specific contraceptive. Nothing says they can’t get it, just that their company insurance policy won’t cover it.

It’s lost on the cartoonist to point out that gun-related homicides, and violent crime in general, is at its lowest point in the last 40 years…

I’m just going to point out that the gun did not go off by itself, nor did it convince the shooter to do this. So easy to blame the gun, so hard to understand why people snap and become violent.

I’ve passed a TS clearance check, several FBI background checks, and a full review of all of my files. I’m clean. And I carry a gun. I can say the same for 99% of my shooting buddies. Only guys I know with records are, ironically, the most anti-gun jerks I’ve ever met.
As a gun owner and a person who carries a gun daily, I assure you that your assertions are full of crap. :)
I did also vote for obama over Romney, and tend to lean liberal over conservative in some things. Crazy that people who carry guns aren’t all as you portray them, innit?

Want to become a citizen? go back, and come in legally. Make the process to do so easier. But coming here illegally should not be rewarded with citizenship. We have enough starving and unemployed people that we don’t need more from other countries.

Why should we grant citizenship to illegal aliens? If they want citizenship, they should go back and do things the legal way. And we should make the legal process a lot easier.

I find it interesting that you have such fear of gun owners at large that you would go out of your way to violate their civil rights.
Tell me, if those owners/carriers are legally allowed to own firearms, have committed no crimes, and have the proper permits, which mean they’ve had all the proper background checks done to carry them, why would you be concerned? Why would you care?
What place is it of yours to determine who is and isn’t a lowlife? What place is it of yours to determine what people are allowed to own?
So, you’re saying that you’ll go out of your way to violate the civil rights of people who do something you don’t like? That’s mighty nice of you, neighbor. I’ll have to find out where you live so I can move in with my arsenal just to annoy you.
The problem with your assertion about F&F is that:
1. The people who did the buying passed a background check. A background check is required on all sales from an FFL.
2. Straw purchasers, people suspected of buying guns to smuggle out of the country, were allowed to continue by the ATF’s continued pressure on FFLs to allow it to continue. There are many FFLs who were driven out of business by the ATF for refusing to participate, invoking massive audits and ultimately being forced to lose their FFL due to it.
3. The Cartels you speak of do buy some of their weapons here in the US. However, if you do a bit of googling, you’re going to find that the cartels are supplied far greater numbers of weapons from sources in the Mexican military, and corrupt militaries across central and South America. When the issue was brought up, the line was not “majority of guns seized” coming from the US, the line was “the majority of guns seized that could be traced”.
Data on google suggests that close to 70% of the weapons being supplied come out of central and south america, and are much cheaper to buy from those sources.
Clearly F&F was a bad idea, and one neither administration should have even considered. However, the US’s firearms market is not solely, nor even the majority player, responsible for the guns used by Mexican cartels.
At least, let’s be accurate about the situation south of the border, hmm?
