    A lot. Probably greater than 80%. But, I only worked with gang members, so it was a select population.

    Good plan. I also think that we need to examine laws regarding the rights of the mentally ill. Some people need to be in mental health facilities, even if they don't want to be.

    who said government healthcare would never happen? My point is, pro-2nd amendment sentiment is so strong in this country that for anyone to try to implement real, tough gun legislation at this point would be political suicide. I'm pro-gun control for the most part, but if I were President I certainly wouldn't be trying to do anything about it right now.

    So I can say "ptif219 is showing signs of being unstable" and then we can huck you into a hospital for an unspecified amount of time to evaluate you, eh?

    Just sayin, murder isn't the only form of crime.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And that cost him a lot of political clout, didn't it? Did you miss the recent election?

    Presidents have always had czars. This didn't begin with Obama, since most of his "czars" were inherited from Bush.

    Tis why I have several guns. Get a 12 gauge. Seriously not messing around here. Just the SOUND of you ratcheting a round into the chamber will allow you to clean up broken glass and the trail of piss the criminal leaves behind.

    Sure as hell do. But what is making sure "insane" people have no access to guns going to do about the gun crime rate? Nothing you say? Well that is correct.
