    Jerry, you've managed to change my opinion of you in just one thread.

    Most people seem to assume that most of America is big city with loads of anti-gun people. It's not. It's mostly small town, rural. Where the local cops are your buddies at the local range, or come to your property to shoot. They are neither reporting people or confiscating anything from them.

    Uh that's exactly why. It has nothing to do with school shootings or public safety.

    There's more US dollars than can ever be printed. It's mostly virtual numbers, not actual money.

    You are correct that it is not a realistic outcome.

    As for giving them up, I have no emotional attachment to any tool, nor do I depend on tools for safety from criminals, and while I might think banning my hammer would be silly and stupid, I'm not willing to do anything more than argue how stupid it would be to do. Any one who has lived any years at all has seen stupid laws.

    And before anyone brings up the constitution, I do not believe our founding fathers intended what we see today with people and guns. I agree that the amendment prevents wholesale banishment of guns, so it won't happen, but this today, I don't believe, is what hey intended.

    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.

    Oh I know. We are getting $40B more non-stop thanks to QE. The government will not be taking crap to pay the Chinese though. Our money would just become increasingly and exponentially worthless.

    I need a good laugh

    do you honestly believe that the founders wanted the federal government to have the power to prevent honest citizens from owning the same weapons that constables and civilian sheriffs carry?

    Not exactly what I said. I said they wouldn't approve of the free flow of high powered weaponry today. How the amend,ent has been used and interpreted by your side of his issue.

    Of course not. The people need to be armed with militarily effective weapons. How can they form a militia without them?
