2nd Amendment

Should You Be Able to Buy Birth Control—or a Tank—Over the Counter? [Podcast]

Reason's Nick Gillespie, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Matt Welch on why government-mandated birth control and the NRA both suck.


"The NRA is constantly doing these kind of dick moves….If a cop kills a black guy they're silent, if a white person gets caught in the crossfire then they're all pissed," says Reason's Nick Gillespie. "The NRA is a special interest group that pushes a Republican agenda first and kinda Second Amendment rights second."

Matt Welch, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Andrew Heaton join him in a conversation about gun control proposals in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting and whether Jeff Sessions' new push for religious liberty really means that women will have to result to abstinence and the rhythm method for contraception.

Also: why the Republican Party is only principled about cutting government when it's not in power, the prospects of World War III, and, of course, whether you should be allowed to buy your very own personal tank.
