Episode 34: Guns, X-Men, and Operation Choke Point

This marks week four of Pete's absence! A MONTH! Four weeks of Norma co-hosting with Bart! This time we discuss things like Operation Choke Point being used by the government to "discourage" legal but morally gray businesses...like porn...from being able to function by making it hard to do banking. Of course this will be abused by future administrations to prevent abortion clinics and such from functioning...

We also talk about guns brandished in public and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
