I’m amazed at the hysteria about guns since the horrific shooting in Newtown, Conn. We are told the “right to own a gun also comes with responsibilities.”

Wow, “responsibilities,” now that is a word we don’t hear very often. How about if we apply “responsible” to other situations, like your sex life? Get pregnant because you didn’t take precautions? Be “responsible” for the baby. You don’t want the baby? Give it up for adoption! Gabby Giffords said, “our children deserve nothing less.”

President Barack Obama said, “our primary task must be to protect our nation’s children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.” President Obama said on the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, this is the chance to recognize the “fundamental constitutional right” to abortion and to “continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.” How about the millions of babies that have been aborted since Roe v. Wade became law?

Oh I forgot, “they” have a “fundamental constitutional right” to abortion up to the moment of birth. So because children are killed by a deranged person who did not have legal access to guns, everyone who owns guns must comply with whatever gun restrictions can be rammed through Congress. Abortion has killed many more millions of babies than those killed at Newtown. Killing babies is killing babies!
