    I've heard that argument, too, as well as that with civil rights inequity decreased, but I've never researched the issue in depth so I can't really speak or speculate.

    Gun-Control Effort Coming Soon From White House - Newsweek

    At the beginning of his State of the Union address, President Obama tipped his hat to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who’s now recuperating in a Houston medical facility. But throughout the hourlong speech, he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy—gun control—and what lawmakers would, or should, do to reform American firearm-access laws.

    That was intentional, according to the White House. An administration official says Obama didn’t mention guns in his speech because of the omnipresent controversy surrounding the Second Amendment and gun control. Tuesday’s speech was designed to be more about the economy and how, as Obama repeated nine times, the U.S. could “win the future.”

    But in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.
    somehow i don't think obama gives a **** what conservatives think of him anymore. WHY DO YOU BELIEVE MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE SHOULD BE ARMED?

    Which is of course your highest priority and the motivating force behind all you advocate.

    Probably the strictest gun laws in the country are in Washington D.C. and New York. Both of which have the most shootings in the nation.

    That might be why they have the strict laws. You may be reading the information incorrectly, drawing the wrong conclusions.

    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.

    Do guns kill people, or people kill people?

    If guns are banned, should knives follow under that same concept?
