    Gun laws only affect people who follow laws. Having said that, I am completely in favor of law enforcement strategies designed to get guns out of the hands of criminals.

    By that, I mean more searches by law enforcement officers of suspected criminals based upon probable cause. Shake the right tree, and apples will fall out. Somehow, though, liberals never seem to be in favor of these kinds of approaches. They prefer to take the IRS approach: Go after the people who actually bother to try to follow the law.

    The issue will continue to be stirred up regardless. I think a lot of the fear people have is unnecessary, though. There are far too many powerful people who are pro-gun. Not to mention the fact that this will never make it past the senate. I honestly don't know why Obama is even bothering with it.

    Wouldn't likely get through either.

    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.

    Your fears are unjustified. I'm sure you will be allowed to keep your guns. For Obama to even bring up such an issue would mean political suicide.

    Oh, so they will help against armed buglars, just takes practice!

    And besides, most break-ins are for drug money purposes, I could just give them some drugs and they would throw away their gun and we would sing Kumbaya!

    I'm not sure the bolded part is factual, but I'd be careful with this approach. Don't give them your meth.

    Right. I believe he does have some anti-gun propensities in his voting record. But as President, he is a lot more hamstrung than you think.

    Yeah. A person has the right of free speech in this country.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
