‘Regret this tweet yet?’ Cosmo: Buying guns should be ‘just as difficult’ as getting an abortion

, , , ,

Stuffed-uterus-loving Democratic Missouri State Rep. Stacey Newmanhas penned an op-ed for Cosmo, which the mag was only too happy to share with us:

Sounds profound, right? Wait until you actually read it:

Earlier this month, I pre-filed a billin the Missouri House, where I am a representative, which would require those buying a gun to undergo similar restrictions as women must undergo for an abortion.

Under this bill, if you wanted to buy a gun, you would have to endure a mandatory 72-hour waiting period so you could think seriously about your purchase. You’d need a doctor’s written permission, and you’d have to purchase your gun at least 120 miles from your home, which is the average distance a woman in Missouri must travel to reach our sole abortion clinic. I also included in the bill a required viewing of a 30-minute video on fatal firearm injuries, a mandatory visit to an emergency trauma center that treats gun violence victims, and a mandatory visit with at least two faith leaders who have officiated at funerals of victims under the age of 18.

I am sick and tired of bills in Missouri penalizing clinics, physicians, and patients with insane new requirements. And at the same time, I am sick of watching the gun lobby buying the Missouri GOP party. I am angry watching gun manufacturers profit as gun violence fatalities add up. I am furious about the misogyny that permeates my state Capitol, with male legislators thinking nothing of interfering with women’s private reproductive care. I am disgusted and just plain mad.

Bless her heart. Stacey thinks she’s making some kind of bold statement here. Alas, the only statement she’s making is that she’s desperate and ignorant and that Cosmo’s just as desperate and ignorant for publishing that garbage.

That’s a pretty safe bet.

Dana Loesch has another good question:

Yeah, Newmanand Cosmo reeeeeally didn’t think this one through, did they?

Don’t mind if we do.

Hey, Cosmo, something to keep in mind for next time:
