A Tale of Two States

It was the worst of times.

Granted, these aren't coming from the same state legislatures -- yet -- but they are brought to you by the same folks.
PIERRE, S.D. — The South Dakota Senate voted Wednesday to require women to wait 72 hours before they can have abortions and to submit to counseling about why they shouldn't go through with the procedures.
And this...
Florida Gov. Rick Scott is expected to sign a bill that will make the state the first in the nation to prohibit doctors from asking patients if they own guns. The bill is aimed particularly at pediatricians, who routinely ask new parents if they have guns at home and if they're stored safely.
How do Republicans reconcile these two ideas without appearing insane?
