You think you've had your fill of gun violence? This guy thinks otherwise.
We do not know who will next be taken in by toxic ideology and turn into a terrorist. You cannot spot a terrorist by religion, gender, income, or marital status. For once, the right and most advantageous responses coincide. Treat each person with a skeptical, rebuttable presumption of innocence.
Sexual health education and access to care isn't simply a personal luxury, it's a question of national safety and security. It is the job of the government to protect its citizens, and that includes giving them information and access to prevent potential health pandemics.
