Obama, Gun Control, and Abortion

Gun Control is in the media a lot recently as Obama and liberals promote their goals of restricting availability of guns. Proponents state they’re not taking rights away, only making “reasonable” controls and restrictions, the idea constitutional rights are not absolute (can you yell “fire” in a movie theater, for example).

But compare a constitutional right (2nd amendment) with a non-constitutional idea (abortion).

Those pushing restrictions, taxes, or a 7 to 14 day wait to exercise your Constitutional 2nd amendments rights as “reasonable” complain when an abortion might require a 24 hour wait before terminating a baby.

“Reasonable” is all in the eyes of the beholder, and as usual, varies with the political goals desired.

Abortion and gun control, while not on the same constitutional level, expose hypocrisy and inconsistency of the groups promoting one while trying to deny the other.

Of course, they hope nobody notices.
