    btw I find it amusing you bragged about fighting against the cops in your glory days and now you think only cops can be trusted to use 30 or 20 or 15 (or ten or five) round magazines


    Ha! I don't know what is funnier, your posts that misinterpret or your claim of victory afterwards without evidence.

    And do try to stay on topic.

    you whined about the AWB when I said under HELLER a new ban based on the first one would probably fail

    you didn't figure out that Heller's test was not created until after that stupid law sunset

    If you think Heller is the basis for your case against the future AWB, you should have nothing to worry about then, right Mr. TurtleDude?

    I never trusted Kagan's claims and who knows who will be on the court by then. I know one thing-GOP appointees are not slaves to the party that appointed them but Obama and Clinton's appointees are pretty much in the box for dem policies

    Sounds like early excuse making to me.

    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 is really silly but that is consistent with your other posts on the subject

    It depends on the restrictions and the level of potential.

    restrictions that impact a fundamental constitutional right have to meet a test far higher than "we think it might do some good"

    what is true is that the AWB was not demonstrated to do any good over the ten year period it was in place

    It's a straightforward statement. You're making excuses in advance. Can you address that.

    I agree, hence my original statement. Unless there was concrete evidence that lives would be saved and that the restrictions were reasonable I would support it. If they wanted to ban guns or try and remove a law abiding citizen's legal Constitutional right to own a gun (if it was somehow proven that this would save lives) then they better amend the Constitution first.
