    Oh I think he has thought about it carefully-but not as to controlling crime but as to hassling gun owners

    Of course, a good percentage of these mass-murderers were never "criminals" before the act. In this case (Newtown) the "villain, IMO, was the slain mother......and society....and the law....
    Now, we must stand up to the NRA and their lackeys(conservatives law-makers).
    There must be laws preventing the sale of assault weapons to regular civilians, and there must be 100% background checks....No one, who is not 100% sane and stable , should be allowed to own a gun....
    How many more must die until our Congresses act..??

    It's rarely a planned thing. Not something go to he black market for. Often they use the weapons of opportunity, hose available. There are no absolutes, which is why I say limit and prevent.

    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 find it amazing that almost every person who wants to restrict OUR rights labels themselves as "progressive" very liberal or has demonstrated that they are one or the other.
    You got nothing to produce that 90% figure. Thank you for confirming you just pulled it out of thin air.

    I didn't think the posts from the anti gun extremists could get even more idiotic

    I was wrong.

    the shooter was a criminal when he picked up the gun intending to kill his mother


    see you hate the NRA more than criminals which proves my point about your motivations

    how is a ban going to stop those who ignore capital murder charges?

    you want to hassle NRA members

    I honestly can't say why he wants to put restrictions on law-abiding citizens rights, who do not commit crimes with their weapons. I think we need to exercise more diligence in keeping track of guns and punishing those criminals who do violate gun laws. I also do like the armed guards (or police, whatever) in schools. That would go SO much further in protecting the children IMO.

    Why are you nitpicking about unimportant things. Discuss the topic please instead of going off on a tangent.

    It does in my head.

    Example: you don't know my brother, but he's a idiot. Buys a gun, doesn't know it's loaded and plays with it around the house. Shoots through the closet into he next door apartment. Luckily he doesn't hit anyone. Still, idiot. Go the gun legally, but he would never even try black market. Not in him. Many idiots are that way. Again, one extra step limits.
