    then I'm on your side. We never disagreed on that. It's how we get there that's the issue. What we've been doing clearly hasn't worked.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

    •  I have a gun policy proposal: (0+ / 0-)

      A really absurd amount of the problem with guns comes from incompetent people with guns.  Canada's training and competence testing requirement reduced the accidental death and injury rate to nearly zero.

      So have actual, serious, training requirements -- safety and handling -- before allowing gun sales or permits.  

      Given that the NRA offers nearly all the training courses, this would actually boost their business massively, but LaPierre's nutcases are against it because LaPierre is a lackey of gun manufacturers, who would sell fewer guns if he only sold them to the competent.

      Just live with the intentional gun murder rate for now.  Getting rid of the accident rate would be something which most of the gun rights people actually support, although LaPierre opposes it.
