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.
Of course, unless he was detained after being denied by NICS we have no idea if he would have actually been prevented from his murderous rampage
now me, I wouldn't mind if he was publicly broken on the wheel on prime time tv. He didn't have the decency to shoot himself and hopefully he will get DEATH BY BONGO!!
What gun did Adam Lanza use to kill all those children? Where did it come from? Are situations like Newtown preventable? My opinion is that they are not, but if we put limitations on what kind of guns were legal to purchase, there could very well be 5-10 children still alive who died that day. We can't prevent tragedies but we can minimize them.

(for good measure, lets throw James Holmes and the Aurora shooting into that equation as well. He proved pretty clearly that after his AR jammed less than a third of the way into a magazine that his handgun made a more than adequate suitable substitute. Of course...that doesnt fit the 'assault weapon' rhetoric...so lets not talk about 'facts')
