    True. And that is why we have to constantly revisit these things. The foundering fathers never expected us to stop thinking.

    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.

    the public can own fully automatic weapons, they must pay a tax stamp, and undergo a more intense background check.......but who has $15,000 for an automatic weapon?

    I'm not certain that amendment was ever properly ratified. There seems to be a cloud of confusion around it. But anyway, I'd like the whole thing taken down. No NICS. No FFLs. Buy whatever you want, from or to whomever you want. No registration, no permits, don't even bother stamping the gun with a serial number, it won't be needed.

    That said, if you **** up with a firearm, you should have a devastating prison sentence, and prison should go back to being a horrible miserable place.

    That doesn't matter. It's only excuse making on your part.

    Btw, you might check with the CDC. I think I saw death by firearms the fifth leading cause of death (might be related to an age group). Any, only if you're curious.

    I'm sure there are people, but most of us have no need for one.

    over 12,000 people were murdered last year, 49 % were killed with hands guns.

    2.5 % were killed with rifles.

    6% were killed by fist from a physical beating.

    4% from things like bats and hammers.

    But, I Suspect what he quoted accurate reflects reality.

    No seriously, why don't stories of online bullying spur a call to limit braod-band connections? "You don't need 30rnds to hunt" = "you don't need a 15/25 connection to check your e-mail"

    And then we'll get into the debate about broad-band, and morons will mix up the terms and call "megabytes-per-second" "WiFi's per-second" and tell you to get a criminal backround check for a D-link.

    ****ing retarded.
