    point out the clause where is says that taxpayers must reimburse private purchasers of equipment that has been legally placed under constraints? Even if that constraint occurred post-purchase?

    I just missed that part.

     As for my other critics, 30,000 dead/year from firearms, vs. 50,000 dead from autos.  While there are almost as many guns in this country as cars, I will be the first to admit that cars are used at a rate hundreds of times greater than guns.

      So, if one "institution" kills only 30,000/year and another kills 50,000, that does not necessarily imply that they are not BOTH a proven danger to society.  

    Semantics aside, I call 30,000 deaths each and every year a "massive problem".  They are definitely NOT all "paper targets".

    Some issues transcend self-centered outrage.
