    Here is a thought for you. Let's take any epidemic. We focus our efforts on the cause not the symptoms. The acts are a symptom of a larger issue.

    the purpose and motivation for leftwing gun control schemes is not to deter criminals

    rather it is to allow Democrats and Liberals to pretend they are DOING SOMETHING about crime (without actually hurting criminals) and harass and annoy people who are perceived to be mostly conservative Christian white males (that is the perception of whom most gun owners are)

    Yes, minor.
    Thanks to people like you, I purchased several and became quite efficient with them. They all hold more than 10 rounds.

    I also don't play golf so limiting people to one wood and one iron is minor as well

    given those restrictions do nothing positive, they are major infringements on freedom

    and given your comments I hope you chastise the anti gun fellow travelers of yours who constantly bray we need England gun laws here
    Its not like that at all. It's more like anti emission laws, or not allowing heavily tinted windshields, or and number of restrictions we have in automobiles.

    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.

    great idea-that means not harassing law abiding gun owners and pretending the harassment will stop the disease or the symptoms

    Sure, just revamp the product line to bow to political pressure. Sounds oh so American. You said enough. You are the type that thinks we should be just allowed single shot rifles and one box of ammo per year. Thanks for showing your colors.

    The official definition is "self defense" not war

    If you can not stay rational please don't respond to my posts. I am not interested in a partisan pissing contest.

    opinion noted and rejected as specious and dishonest. Those restrictions are all based on safety

    none of the crap the Democrats have passed are aimed at criminals but rather people who don't violate substantive laws.

    I can own a car that is faster than anything the cops have. so your analogy is moronic.
