    The US economy has grown what meager amount it has despite the government, not because of it. Krugman is blind to that fact, and that’s why he’s a political hack.

    I wasn’t saying that. The argument was how great of a job he was doing killing terrorists, and I was refuting that argument by showing how many lives were taken by those terrorists, stating that he was doing a pretty poor job killing terrorists. I never said it was his job to protect Christians.

    It’s less than the number of Christians murdered by Islamic terrorists during his watch.

    How about the FBI (under direction from Obama, mind you… it’s part of the executive branch) do its job and actually prevent him getting a job with a contractor for the DHS, and prevent him from purchasing firearms in the first place? He was investigated multiple times for his pro-islam and pro-terror rants, and they still did nothing. How is that failure to execute the duties of the FBI the fault of the 2nd Amendment?

    So much for the “Most Transparent Administration.” Psh.

    I hate to break it to our head-in-the-sand liberals on this site, but our society (in fact, most modern societies) require a concept called voluntary compliance with the law. The police, government, military, et al are not large nor pervasive enough to monitor every moment of every day of every person in the country. Thus, normal society requires that people voluntarily obey laws of their own volition. Hence the term, voluntary compliance with the law.

    You know who doesn’t follow the law? A criminal. In fact, one of the synonyms for “criminal” is “lawbreaker.” So, riddle me this liberals: If they are breaking existing firearm laws — not to mention committing murder, how will passing new, more restrictive laws get them to comply with the law?

    Your desires are well-meaning, but completely impractical and will only service to harm the citizenry of this country. After all, if you ban the carbine-style rifles (because there is no such thing as an “assault weapon,” just like they cannot fire 700 rounds per minute), who will you be taking them away from? The criminals? Or those people who wish to protect themselves from the criminals? Because in a place I like to call the “real world,” the criminals will still not obey the law. They will still get their hands on them through various sources and channels.

    Also, wm, I couldn’t let this one pass by. EVERY firearm in existence is a weapon of war; From lever action to revolvers to AR-15-esque rifles… they have all seen war. Even ball muskets are weapons of war. Being a weapon of war simply means they have been battle tested and are reliable in the field. Stop perpetuating a strawman because you are similar to Kuntzman.

    There is a meme on facebook that I feel is relevant in this discussion: If you cannot see the irony in having a gun ban enforced by men with guns, then you fail to understand why the second amendment was written in the first place.

    It’s true, because the largest slaughter in our nation’s history was when we disarmed a populace and then shot them all, including women and children. I also would like to know how disarming a law-abiding populace will make them safer from those who refuse to abide by the law.

    It wasn’t the gleeful laugh… it was the sad, joyless laugh. You’re missing my point. You are trying to assert that guns are the problem, since they kill 30k people a year. That’s the basis of your short statement, trying to discredit the ’toon’s original focus that radical islamic forces are the problem.

    My point is that firearms are not the problem. When you set them against the backdrop of all the causes of death, loss of life surrounding Americans’ employment of firearms is minuscule compared to many other issues. And yet of all those causes of death, only one of those — caused by firearms — is mentioned in the US Constitution.

    So why is it that there is such a rabid response by the left when firearms are involved? Cigarettes do nothing but kill people. Same with alcohol. Both individually kill more people than firearms do. But neither of these two items have the attention, nor the restrictions, of firearms. No license is required, simply being old is a qualifier.

    So why are firearms receiving so much attention? Why are we blaming the firearms for atrocities committed in the name of Allah? Why are liberals not placing the fault where it lies: with unbalanced and radical islamic terrorists?

    You make me laugh. Let’s look at the causes of death in the US. Notice firearms are nowhere on that list.

    And let’s look at just deaths on a scale. Autos killed Just shy of 33k people in 2014. (Driving is a privilege, not a Constitutional right, fyi)

    Alcohol kills around 88,000 people in 2014. No permit is required for that.

    Smoking kills nearly half a million people each year, nearly 34,000 people from second-hand smoke. No permit is required for smoking.

    Falling has killed over half a million people in 2013. Are you going to ban gravity?

    But these 30k deaths from guns… clearly is the most crucial and urgent matter of our time. If you bothered looking at the facts surrounding firearms, you will take note that of all 12,253 murders committed in 2013, 8,454 were done using a firearm of any type. Of those firearms, 285 were committed using a rifle of any kind. That’s less than shotguns. That’s less than knives, bats, or fists and feet.

    Given that there are over 110 million rifles in this country, 285 murders with those rifles is a pretty staggeringly, infinitesimally small portion of those rifles. But you suggest that guns are the problem, that rifles of “scary” nature need to be banned, because 285 people lost their lives to madmen with rifles.

    You are ignoring statistics and are instead suggesting the tens of millions of lawful firearm owners should be punished because you are uncomfortable with the concept that maybe it’s the people behind the killings that matter, not the tools they use.

    Because if you really think it’s the gun’s fault, then you should outlaw smoking, driving, drinking alcohol, and gravity.

    It is evident by the lack of breadth in your post that you have only been observing liberal-leaning news outlets. There have been numerous reports from the San Jose rally of Trump supporters being sucker punched, beaten, kicked, and otherwise physically assaulted simply by virtue of being Trump supporters.

    Additionally, last I checked, taunting someone is still protected under the 1st Amendment. Telling someone, “F you,” is not inciting panic or threatens public safety. So what you’re supporting is actually suppression of the 1st Amendment… which is consistent with liberal ideology in today’s day and age: “Free speech as long as you agree with what I have to say.”
