Spring Cleaning Time
Sunshine State Libocrisy
Are you a woman in Florida, who wants to buy a gun to defend yourself against an abusive ex-husband who's threatening to kill you? Well, thanks to the tireless efforts of the gun control movement, you'll have to wait three business days before taking possession of your new firearm, even after completing all the paperwork and passing the required background check.
Needless to say, your ex-husband won't feel as compelled to wait the three days before carving you up with a kitchen knife, strangling you with a lamp cord, cracking your skull open with a nine-iron, or simply pounding the life out of you with his fists.
Of course, these same pillars of consistency and moral virtue, so vehemently disgusted by the notion of allowing weaker individuals to defend themselves against a stronger, violent adversary, are now up in arms (quite figuratively, of course) over the idea of requiring women to wait one day before terminating an unwanted pregnancy.
House OKs bill requiring waiting time, ultrasound before abortions
TALLAHASSEE - A woman seeking an abortion in Florida would have to wait 24 hours before going through with it under a bill passed Friday by the state House.
The proposal drew the ire of abortion rights supporters.
I know. I'm shocked too.
Let's play "Spot the Real Quote":
Rep. Kelly Skidmore said it was insulting that those pushing the bill thought women wouldn't deliberate the decision on their own. "It suggests that I would be so cavalier in coming to the decision to buy a handgun for self-defense that I should go back home and think it over, as if I were out shopping and walked by a gun shop and decided to pop in for a handcannon," said Skidmore, D-Boca Raton. "What an outrage."

Libocrisy at its absolute finest.
I'd expect nothing less from the same bunch of morons who feel that women seeking permission to carry a handgun to defend themselves from would-be rapists are just being paranoid, while insisting that any restrictions on abortion contain exemption clauses for cases of rape and incest, because, don't you know, there are would-be rapists lurking around every corner.
