GOP inconsistencies on guns, Obamacare, Planned Parenthood

Republican US Senators in the last 24 hours voted a) to overturn Obamacare, b) defund Planned Parenthood, but also voted c) to maintain current gun sales' loopholes and continue to allow people on the terror watch list to buy firearms, as the NRA demands.

The least our compassionate conservatives could do is preserve Obamacare coverage for people shot by any and all loophole shooters and terrorists, whether foreign or domestic.

Not that Colorado GOP State Legislator Jo Ann Windholz would agree, since she reportedly said after three people were killed and nine were injured by a shooter at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs:
The true instigator of this violence and all violence at any Planned Parenthood facility is Planned Parenthood themselves. Violence begets violence

"Missouri state Rep. Stacey Newman (D) pre-filed a bill Tuesday that would restrict access to firearms in the same way her state restricts access to abortion.

Newman's bill includes a 72-hour waiting period for purchasing guns and watching a 30-minute video on firearms fatalities before purchasing. It also requires the firearms dealer be at least 120 miles from the purchaser's residence.

The bill would require that a gun purchaser visit an emergency room at the nearest "urban hospital" on a weekend between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. "when gun violence victims are present."

Within 72 hours of their purchase, the individual also must meet with at least two families who have been victims of firearm violence and two faith leaders who have presided over funerals in the last year of a child gun violence victim...."
