    Oh and I was offered one of those Morehead scholarships at a fairly decent Law School in Chapel Hill

    Why would you think the drug trade would be similar to a gun trade? Let us look at it on a practical level. In Japan, extacy, amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine and LSD are all widely available. Guns are not.

    Both are illegal and heavily regulated. But clearly in economic terms, drugs behave differently on the black market than do guns.

    1) profitable amounts of drugs are small and easy to transport.

    2) Users use drugs and continue to use drugs on a regular basis. Guaranteeing a ready market for anything you bring in. Guns are not used as regularly, nor do they cease to be when used.

    3) the market is naturally smaller for illegal guns than drugs

    I am sure there are, but being agnostic I don't buy into that nonsense. One of my favorite things is watching the gun fearers pretending that only the backwards or myth worshippers are pro gun. Actually, gun owners are better educated, on the whole, and make more money, than gun fearers.

    Here's more evidence of schools and concealed carry. I knew this Texas program was out there. Last April with 700 public school teachers.

    700 public school teachers receive concealed carry firearms training in Texas

    I'm surprised the Military can't be as smart as the Schools on CC.

    You obviously have no good argument left.

    ANY desirable commodity that is banned can and will be procured. Gangs and violent criminals will get guns. The drug ban is evidence of that reality. Its simply stupid beyond words to pretend that violent criminals would NOT find a way to import guns, right in that crate next to the one marked "crack". Japan has very restrictive gun laws and stiff penalties for illegal gun ownership. You know who has no problem procuring illegal firearms in Japan? Their gangs.

    But that IS your goal, isnt it...a complete ban on guns.
