    Disagreeing with the present state of gun philosophy and politics in America does not make one a gun hater either.

    This is a bullying question like dove's attack on my post. It does not address the substance of the debate but is a mere assault on the individual making a point. It appears to be typical of the gun lobby and part of the attititude common to gun extremists. This propensity to personal attack is part of the reason why so many American males should not be permitted to carry handguns in public. That's why we hire police.

    It however can make you a 2nd amendment opponent when you are trying to restrict the 2nd amendment.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    30 years ago? You made it sound like you go hunting every now and then.

    Sorry if that is what you got from it. My bad. Don't need to hunt today. The point was I don't hate guns. When needed, I have no problem using one. Hate implies an aversion to one.

    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.

    Kind of hard to say you are not a gun hater when you are using something you did almost 30 years ago as an example to prove you don't hate guns.

I reload for my personal shotguns and rifles for fun, not a gun obsession. When it gets to be a chore and boring I walk away until next time it calls me or until hunting season. If you have never had a boring moment playing with guns we're probably not on the same wavelength. No doubt you believe in armed civilians walking around in public loaded down with handguns with which to shoot other people?
    Armed citizens already walk around in public with handguns, in about 41 states at least.... and they've proven to be very peaceful and law abiding.

    Concealed carry in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    North Carolina reports only 0.2% of their 263,102 holders had their license revoked in the 10 years since they have adopted the law.[61]

    Permit holders are a remarkably law-abiding subclass of the population. Florida, which has issued over 1,408,907 permits in twenty one years, has revoked only 166 for a "crime after licensure involving a firearm," and fewer than 4,500 permits for any reason.[62]

    I am an ex-cop, and I wouldn't be the only one to tell you that a gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
