    So how do you plan to control what criminals do? How do you know what criminals will do? How do you know how many criminals will try to break in your home?

    Wouldn't an effective strategy to be prepared for worst case scenarios? I remember my neighbors used to laugh and joke that I was a "prepper" for having 3 weeks worth of food, water, and supplies in my home - until we got hit by Katrina. Now they all have emergency supplies.

    those who worship the state think that employees of the state are all wise and more valuable than us peasants.

    they just ignore the obvious logic and can not address the fact that when someone is asked why they want a 18 shot glock for self defense a most reasonable answer is -ITS THE SAME WEAPON the experts in the PD said is ideal in this environment for defense against thugs

    I had this instant flash in my mind of a man defending his home with a bronze cannon, shooting grape shot.

    Your posts are bordering on playing dumb in that passive-aggressive attack on gun rights again. Its better to have too many rounds and only need to shoot once versus having the limits anti gun assholes in politics have imposed and then have one more attacker than you have bullets

    I guess you want to avoid dealing with the fact that if our cops dealing with the same criminals we might have to deal with have determined that X amount of rounds is proper, that's a good number for the rest of us in that area to use

    you seem to believe that those of us who have CCW licenses are somehow less trustworthy than cops even though there is no evidence to support that hysteria
    No. You're assertion as best I can tell is that it is reasonable for people to have large clips, that they are needed. Quit diverting to me, and try to demonstrate the need, support your assertion.

    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.

    It's been demonstrated repeatedly. Only the brain dead would have trouble seeing that.

    One more time: If the police think they need them - then I need them. We face the same criminal element.

    Why do you spend so much time questioning why other people want guns

    we get it-you don't like them-then don't own one

    you really have no business or expertise in telling me what I need
    Yes, it is best to not get into accidents. I take those steps and not drive a tank. Again, you have the right to have a gun. You have the right to self defense. This is not the issue. Why do you need more than the job requires?
