    Difficult doesn't mean banned. And you will find a majority of city folks prefer less guns and not more. But the fact remains that guns have not remotely been banned.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    you either deliberately or ignorantly pretend that incremental steps towards gun bans facilitate gun bans

    Murder suicide. However, it is people shooting each other. Family members. Just heard on the radio from the CDC that we're 43 times more likely to shoot each other, ourselves and family members than to defend ourselves. CDC spokesperson noted that even with the limited budget they had, they could shoot down the self defense stats you like to use. But, then again, we've done that already, haven't we?

    Anyway, the point here is that your hyperbolic fear is largely silly. There are areas of debate. i get you want no restrictions and some what a ban, but the power to ban weapons altogether simply doesn't exist. There is next to no likelihood that you will lose your weapons.

    Again, I've been hearing this my entire life. Show me those bans. Not your fear. But real bans.

    Obama is really intelligent on this one. In his one comment about what he "may" do, Obama has shifted focus away from the economy and jobs while the right laps this up like Koolaid and gets into a frenzy.

    The country continues to go down the crapper with unemployment and the economy while the right is focused on an imaginary demon.

    At worst, there will be an assault weapons ban PROPOSED, but highly unlikely it will ever pass.

    England is not the same as the U.S. politically and you know this.

    We're not England. Just in case you haven't noticed.

    DO be sure to mention that next time people offer how wonderfully successful gun bans were in England and elsewhere...
