    Re: Guns

    Being a gun owner I do not feel my guns are a part of my family. However when I am able to carry a concealed weapon I will do so and it will be a part of me for my own safety as well as my families safety. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    How reasonable that is depends a lot on how much real danger you face.

    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.

    I do not go that far, but you would be hard pressed to convince me to ever give up my right to keep and bear arms.
    I actually don't intend to. But I would like a little more reason all around concerning weapons.

    How does anyone know how much danger they will face until they are in a certain situation. People are crazy. You never know what situation you could end up in. I'll be prepared for a dangerous situation. Hopefully I am never in a dangerous situation. If I am in one I will be prepared.

    This is something that we will never agree upon I think.

    Those Soldiers on FT Hood must have believed they were in the safest place on the planet.

    As a side comment. I have chosen not to carry a .45 because doing so limits the number of rounds I can fire without reload.

This not only applies to the Second Amendment, it applies to ALL rights people have.

    The Second Amendment is included in that.

    I truly am convinced that there are people in America today, and perhaps you are one of these people, who do look at the Second Amendment as a pure good - as a mitzvah - from which nothing bad can evolve. That view is not only foolish in a society of 311 million people it is naive and almost childlike in its approach and simplicity and denial of reality that jumps off the daily newspaper.

    I am pro Second Amendment. I am convinced that - on balance - it does more good for our nation that it does bad for our nation. I am convinced that it benefits more people in our nation that it causes harm or damage to people in our nation. So when I weigh these considerations of practicality and reality, I come down on the side of the Second Amendment. I would NOT abolish it. I would NOT severly limit practical rights that flow from it necessary to carry it out or use it.

    But that does not put me with the pure good firearms advocates that you now admit to being one of. And that does not make me against the Second Amendment because I am not one of you.
    1) you are not pro second amendment as that is commonly understood in the USA. Your thread about trying to saddle the second amendment with those dead children killed by that nutcase in Chardon, Ohio is proof enough

    2) your religious zeal is to help the dem party at all costs and to advocate taking more wealth from those who already pay too much

    3) there is no bad that comes from the second amendment unless you are a criminal, or a rogue government agent or a tyrant. We have a complete ban on some narcotics and those are readily available. No second amendment would not mean criminals are disarmed

    Hopefully lots of the cops doing that would be sued into the poor house along with the governor for violating the constitutional rights of individuals. In fact I would not lose any sleep if a bunch of them got their asses blown off for such predations of privacy

    i have to say, you really do seem to enjoy discussing violence against politicians & law enforcement. FALN, the Black Panthers, Jared Laughner, Tim McVeigh, would all agree with you on this matter.
