Backwards Logic in America

The NRA solution to guns is a lot like our American health care system. Let's build lots of hospitals so we can treat all the people once they're sick instead of working on preventive medicine the way the rest of the world with lower cancer rates does.

The NRA solution is also a lot like our prison system. Let's build more and more prisons to accommodate all the criminals instead of working on preventing the crimes in the first place. It's backwards.

The NRA solution is also a lot like the Republican approach to sex education. Let's ban schools and organizations from teaching real world skills and knowledge because they're "inappropriate" instead of preventing teenage pregnancy and abortion. Then when they're pregnant we won't let them make their own reproductive decisions. Once they have their children we'll also cut any funding for those most in need.

It's all backwards.
