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.
that sort of nonsense comes from the idiotic belief that the only way a gun is used to stop a crime is when a criminal is shot
hundreds of thousands of crimes -maybe up to two million a year-are stopped by people with guns.
how many people are accidentally shot
and "close to us" means what? a prostitute shooting the pimp that is beating her? a woman shooting an ex who is stalking her? one drug dealer who cannot legally own a gun shooting his competition?
we get the fact you are afraid of people owning guns but lets not trot out BS claims
guess what-its hard to get shot if there is no gun around. the problem is that gun bans tend to mean honest people are disarmed and crooks go unchallenged.
