As a Type 1 diabetic, I have a choice: inject insulin or die. Every day for the last 46 years, I have injected insulin; if I go 24 hours without it, I will die a horrible death.

One hundred years later, it’s a different story.

Of all the arguments made against gun safety proposals, far and away the most ridiculous is the "why have laws at all" argument. "But criminals won't follow the law! It won't make any difference!"

I, Casper Stockham, stand for you!
