BE A PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR WHATWE'RE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT HERE.

PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR INSURANCEFOR SHOOTING SOMEONE.

I DON'T HAVE A GUN.

>> YOU DON'T HAVE A GUN?

>> NO.

>> I HAD FAILED.

I HAD TO WARN CUCINELLI.

THIS IS THE EXACT SAME CHALLENGETHAT OBAMACARE IS FACING.

TO DO ANYTHING. WE LIKETHE CONSTITUTION.

SO, THERE'S A MAJOR DIFFERENCEIN THE TWO THERE.

PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD TO SHOOTOTHER PEOPLE.
