  •  Wouldn't it (3+ / 0-)

    make better sense to treat the criminals out there like criminals, than to create a whole bunch of new criminals overnight? I wonder how those voters will feel about being criminalized?

    Those people are these elected people's constituents. That industry employs their constituents and puts food on the table.

    You got to admit, this whole gun control threat has been great economic stimulus!

    Let's try to stick with what is real.

    •  Yup.. (3+ / 0-)

      It is quite a stimulus for a range of industries and occupations, including the medical profession (doctors and nurses in emergency rooms and operating theaters, physical therapists and mental health professionals to deal with the survivors), lawyers to defend the accused and press litigation on behalf of the families left behind, coffin makers, funeral directors, an even janitorial staff who have to clean up the blood and body parts.

      I am a warrior for peace. And not a gentle man... Steve Mason, 1940-2005
