    You started it Crue as usual. You can't bring it up by making a prediction that libs will, attack them for it then when they give you **** for "going there" tell them they started it. fail

    This is just a normal incident similar to a case I read 2 days ago when a 2 year old kid was killed while playing with a gun.

    It's my understanding that punishment is not a deterrent.

    Of course its too simplistic, it dosent call for guns to be stripped from legal law abiding owners hands.
    Sorry buddy, but it is that simplistic.

    Because while on the books is hardly ever enforced.

    I haven't called for that. I also asked if yours have been taken?

    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.

Attempting to alter the rights (freedoms) of the vast majority of the owners of 300 million firearms because the very occasional bad actor is also...stupid. Ignoring the day to day violence and only celebrating the occasional school shooting in your 'cause' is not only stupid, its corrupt. Ignoring the reality for every 1 school shooting there are hundreds of beatings and stabbings that go ignored is equally stupid and corrupt.
    do you HONESTLY believe that the gun haters and gun restrictionists are ACTUALLY motivated by what a homicidal nut case does?

    Oh, I don't buy that. Parents start getting locked up for leaving loaded guns around for their 15/16-year-olds to shoot up schools? I think we'll see a definite run on gun safes.

    but restricting the rights of honest people will stop those who have already lost that right from abusing a right they don't have?

    What did I "start". By calling for the partisanship to begin. Am I wrong, just read the thread. The libs jumped on that bait instantly.
