    people with knives ... not so much.
    people with guns stop millions of violent crimes

    people without guns normally are called victims

    I certainly hope so. We pay police officers money to do just that.

    Is that hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, annually, over the entire history of the USA, or over the history of the world? And you have the authoritative statistics to back up this boast? Statistics which definitively can quantify that claim and are widely accepted and respected?

    btw - authoritative statistics refers to a source other than yourself that has some standing and is reliable and trustworthy.

    I have never seen anyone deny that a person with a gun should not defend themselves against a criminal attempting to harm them. That is a given.

    Seems like a very uncivil and evil thought. I would hold more contempt for people who would wish for that type of harm to another human being.

    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.

    So you want no limit on rounds in a magazine at all? You only want the limits of technology to decide that?

    I want the most effective piece of weaponry I can hold in my hands that will protect me and my family from those who wish me harm... the number of rounds a weapon holds attributes to that effectiveness.

    so no, no limit what so ever. When I lived in NM, I had an AK-47 variant, with a 100 round drum. For some odd reason, that drum did not make me go on a kill crazy rampage, perhaps it was defective.
