I wonder where all the guns come from ... I'm guessing they spontaneously reproduce themselves then.
Criminals can get guns, drugs, or anything they want off the black market. So taking guns, the right for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families, will never take the guns away from the criminals. You should never want your rights taken away, just because there are criminals in the world.
I also think the biggest mistake, huge mistake, was closing down all the insane asylums.
We're going in circles. but I understand. It's a mystery where all those black market weapons come from and who opposes any restriction on production and control. You feel a need to arm and protect yourself and naturally want to prevent any restrictions. I fully agree there should be even more insane asylums on the road from Bedlam to Bellevue.
They closed them all down. Anyone that shoots up a school is mentally ill.
Fast & Furious comes to mind. Eric Holder and Obama had
a lot everything to do with that.
The best example was Katrina. They disarmed the good people of New Orleans, but they didn't disarm the criminals. It was total chaos over there, looting, robbery, rape and murder, and there was nothing the good people of New Orleans could do to protect themselves, nothing. Just across that river, where I lived, we were armed. We had little to no crime and we were safe from the criminals. The criminals knew we were armed, so they left us a lone. Criminals hate the 2nd Amendment more then you do.

Only 75000 jobs and of course the market loved it, looking for interest rates dropping. I see where Trump retreated on Mexico tariffs as well so we can expect a nice jump Monday unless he comes up with another weird move by then? He's got two whole days to come up with something!
