What If Obamacare Required Everyone To Buy A Gun?

Say Anything Blog

That’s the question Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli asked on CBS’ Washington Unplugged today (via Andrew Malcolm):

Never before in our history has the federal government ordered Americans to buy a product under the guise of regulating commerce. Imagine if this bill were that in order to protect our communities and homeland security, every American had to buy a gun. Can you imagine the reaction across the country to that?

The liberal left would recoil in horror, and even gun-toting conservatives such as myself would be opposed too, and for good reason. We shouldn’t be forced to buy something just because the government says so.

And yet, that’s the very power the Obama administration is claiming when they say they have the authority to force us to buy health insurance. It’s not just extra-constitutional, it’s wrong.
