Both purchasing a gun and getting an abortion are actions that can be taken legally. But Pro-Life individuals are not afraid to show up and publicly voice their opinions against those who choose to abort.
What if another strong group of the public treated a person who wants to buy a gun like they treat the woman who leaves an abortion clinic? Strangers would hold up signs bashing the gun purchaser and photos of deceased loved ones who died by the use of a gun, begging them not to buy one.
Bashing someone just for purchasing a gun, without knowing their intentions, sounds extreme when you think about it.
Some argue that in this day and age where mass shootings are becoming common, and homicide rates don't seem to be declining, that we should be just as extreme when it comes to gun purchasing.
Representative John Lewis' argument this week, during the sit in on the House floor, was that we

The sit in ended without a vote on the matter.
Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, publicly stated that the sit in was just a publicity stunt and that all the Democrats had to do was get 218 signatures on a petition in order to get the vote.
Sounds easy enough. But, Democrats would need the additional votes of some Republicans in order to reach that number.
Polls show that a majority of the public agree that guns should be banned.
What do you think?
Are you satisfied with the current gun laws? Do you believe we should at least take another look at the current laws? Should those on a "no fly list" or FBI watch list be prohibited from purchasing guns?
What about liking abortions to gun purchasing? Should we publicly shame and bash those seeking to legally purchase a gun just like women who seek to legally get an abortion?
Why or Why not?
And if Congress never votes on gun control, maybe vagina can really be the key to gun control with a good old fashion "sex strike".
