Substitute 'hunter' and 'ammunition' to Ms. Fluke's testimony... and it might sound like this:
“And especially in the last week, I have heard more and more of their stories. On a daily basis, I hear yet from another hunter in Wyoming or from another hunter or who hunts for their food, and they tell me that they have suffered financially and emotionally and medically because of this lack of ammunition.
“And so, I’m here today to share their voices, and I want to thank you for allowing them – not me – to be heard.
“Without ammunition, hunting, as you know, can cost a hunter over $3,000. For a lot of hunters who, like me, are on public assistance, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary. 40% of the hunters in Wyoming reported to us that they struggle financially as a result of this policy.
“One told us about how embarrassed and just powerless he felt when he was standing at the gun counter and learned for the first time that ammunition was not covered and he had to turn and walk away because he couldn’t afford that ammunition. Hunters like him have no choice but to go without ammunition.
“Just last week, a married hunter told me that he had to stop using ammunition because he and his wife just couldn’t fit it into their budget anymore. Hunters employed in low-wage jobs without ammunition coverage face the same choice." :D

And to some people, in some areas especially, hunting is a necessary source of food. Food is a necessity, what Ms. Fluke was testifying about is a desire, not a necessity. I'd like to know where I can go to support the ammunition coverage bill. Maybe we could get them to pay for a hunting license for me as well -- I haven't been able to afford one for years. Maybe Obama could buy me some new guns too.....

Under what circumstances in modern society is it impossible for commercial food sources to produce sufficient food?

FYI, that's for prescription medication. It would be like buying one Barrett M107A1 and saying that they buy a lot of guns because they could afford so many Mosins for that price.

I don't see how this thread is High Road at all. The fact is that many here are misinformed. And the $3000 was for the course of three years it takes to get a law degree. Either way I think that this is not taking the high road and only paints gun owners in a bad light.
