My Guns Are Less Regulated Than My Uterus 


But in this country, my uterus is more regulated than my guns. Birth control and reproductive health services are harder to get than bullets. What is that about? Guns don’t kill people — vaginas do?

When the cottonwood is flying and Alaskans are all lined up for Sudafed, we have to get it from a pharmacist, give them our identification, and the state keeps track of how much we’re consuming just so they’re sure we’re not running a meth lab. I get it, meth is bad, but I can buy bullets right off the shelf.

One hundred percent of passengers on an airplane go through screening checkpoints, but 40 percent of gun purchases are made without background checks through the loophole that allows purchase at gun shows, many of which are held in schools.

If you’ve been on the battlefield, you’ve probably carried an M4 carabiner or something similar. And it fires a 5.56 (mm) round at 3,000 feet per second. And when it hits human flesh, it does terrible damage. It’s supposed to, and that’s what our soldiers should carry. I don’t want them on our streets; I don’t want them in our schools; I don’t think that most people are prepared to carry them. So I think we have to have a very, very serious look at why we even would consider having guns like that.
