    Doesn't really say that. I'd be shocked if you could find that said in any study.

    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 will note that the definition YOU SUPPLIED AND YOU AGREED TO clearly contained modern definitions and one that was clearly labeled as OBSOLETE because it has fallen out of common usage. When challenged by Federalist, I presented authoritative evidence in fact the very same authority that your yourself presented - which clearly proved that it was the OBSOLETE definition which was used at the time of the adoption of the Second Amendment.

    The previous ban didnt reduce the number of "these" guns out there because the previous ban didnt actually ban anything - it could have been in effect for 1000 years and the number of "these" guns would have increased based on market supply and demand.

    I supplied a definition that happened to include the word "obsolete" in it. I never saw you present any evidence whatsoever. Perhaps you should repost it since it was so "authoritative." LOL!

    BTW, I have NEVER agreed to anything with you. I don't know WHAT you're talking about.

    And your definition does not make any sense in the context of the second amendment. It is just delusional.

    The supply will not continue to keep up with demand forever once manufacture and sales have been banned.

    You dont understand: Gun manufacturers did not stop LEGALLY making them and people did not stop LEGALLY buying them because the ban didnt actually ban anything.
    So, it doesnt matter how long the ban would have been in place - the number of "those" guns would have increased based on market supply and demand.

    Your claim that the previous ban wasn't long enough to significantly reduce the number of these guns out there is therefore unsound.

    Why would you lie about a discussion you participated in?

    I participated in a discussion. I NEVER agreed with you, and if I ever did it was PURELY sarcasm. Sorry but I don't agree with or respect anything that comes out of your silly intellectually dishonest pie hole, and if I ever do please get a gun and shoot me.
