    Why do you have a questionable mental status?

    Isn't the slippery slope fallacy an old and unoriginal talking point?

    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.

    Murder is illegal, but people still commit murder, so by your logic, murder should not be illegal. That line of argument is ridiculous.

    One nut case? Surely you jest. I can understand why strong supporters of gun rights see every regulation as the camel's nose under the tent; but, in reality, mentally unstable people should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms. Argue that point, and one just looks foolish.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    I wouldn't want us to overreact. So, we might take a deep breath. Ture. But I also wouldn't reject anything off hand either. If what is proposed reasonable, OK. So, I'll listen, take it in, consider it, and encourage my representative accordingly. Sound reasonable?

    See, you have this false impression that I support crazies with guns. No, I support enforcing current laws and taking a look at current laws that need adjustment rather then "new laws". The difference is hardly trivial and is the crux of the issue.

    OMG. Those socialists are coming for your guns. Time to lock and load.


















    In all seriousness, i'm not pro-gun control, but the predictable responses in this thread are pretty funny.

    Nobody's taking your guns, boys. You have a republican majority in congress. Try not to panic.

    Completely reasonable. A wait and see what is proposed is ALWAYS a good idea, however, my commentary was what I see as the better approach to begin with. "Hey let's review our current laws, see if any need some altering, and go forward". "New laws first" IMHO is not the best response to any situation.

    (the forum is gonna crash, Boo and I just found common ground... )

    Care to add anything intelligent... oh wait, it's Catz. You reinforce your grey user name with every post you know that?

    Why do Conservatives resist any type of gun control in this country. Everytime the issue comes-up they all do the "sky is falling" routine where they think it will be some slippery slope of eradicating gun ownership.

    For christsake, even Dick Cheney said last week we should do something about high-round clips and keep guns out of crazies hands, and he voted against legislation banning the cop killer bullets and plastic guns.

    Oh, and once again, there is only one law regarding mentally unstable gun ownership and they must confess to being crazy at purchase.
