    That's what I thought. It's something to think about but it's certainly not conclusive.

    I don't think so. But it's clear there are those who have been trying to suggest it.

    I buy all of my guns and ammunition to counter the kooks who believe guns are the problem and not government. I do not understand why anyone would be liberal much less very liberal. Isn't simple authoritarian statism sufficient?

    US citizens, like me, are responsible for the proliferation of gun ownership, which is a good thing.

    The cost of guns is like any other commodity - the laws of supply and demand dictate the market price.

    It is no wonder you are anti-gun, as you are ignorant about them, with the exception of your fears and imagination.
    And for self defense, which is very important to me and my family.

    It's not so much apply as a fact. Many their ideas were relatively new. To consider them stagnant thinkers would be a poor reading of who they were. They even revised their first effort to give more power to the federal government. This suggests they were quite pragmatic.

    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.

    Same can be said for a knife or explosive material or a club. Your obsession with the tool leads me to believe you don't actually care that someone died.

    You grasp the disturbed part. Nobody is contesting that mentally ill joule by have guns. There is even a law that says this. Kids can't have them either. You don't grasp that we don't understand who is disturbed. Your obsession is nothing but a partisan hack blinder to the real issue.

    Guns are good tools for getting a high velocity projectile on target. They're a definite improvement over the arm and the sling so, when you want to kill something, a gun is usually a good choice.

    Now, please, answer this honestly, is it always wrong to kill someone? Is it, to your thinking, ever warranted to take someone's life without trial?

    LMAO!!! I have 3 target rifles. Not meant for killing. I have a handgun for self defense but I don't have a desire to use it. I would rather my life NOT be in jeopardy.

    But hey. Maybe you can substantiate this claim? You got evidence? No. Your claim false.
