Words offer a stark comparison

The following recently came across my desk, and I would like to share it with your readers. It is entitled “Brilliant from Gloria Steinem:”

“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, a video he has to watch about the effects of gun violence. Let’s close down all but one gun shop in every state and make him travel hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun. Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun.”
