Over at Religion & Politics, Fordham's Michael Peppard has a smart, tough piece comparing the recent political activities of the National Rifle Association and Planned Parenthood.

In so doing, they disregard the well-regulated liberties that vast majorities of our country desire," Peppard open and proceeds to make the case. Good stuff.
