The RECESSION that occurred after Reagan took office?
The deep recession that you insisted that I had to prove happened?
Are you going to work your way down to Iran Contra or are you going to get back on topic here?
“The RECESSION that occurred after Reagan took office?” LOL… the recession started in 1980.

“The deep recession that you insisted that I had to prove happened?” No, you insisted that Reagan caused, but have yet to state what he did to cause it… But wait Reagan wasn’t president in 1980… Curious.

“Are you going to work your way down to Iran Contra or are you going to get back on topic here?” Are you going to explain the primary cause of the recession and high unemployment and then you can explain why Obama caused 10% plus Unemployment in 2009?

Gun control certainly can keep some Newtown's from happening.
If the NRA hadn't put the AR-15 in the killer's hands, Newtown would not have happened.
What MIGHT keep Newtown's, Aurora's and Arizona's from happening is teachers, clergy, health professionals, and citizens being able to say pick one, that student, retired truck driver, disgruntled former employee, or who ever they are that need to be locked up on the fifth floor and getting help before they kill some one because they are frickin nuts. That will never happen why you ask, because oh my gosh we might violate someone's personal space, or hurt their feelings, we might violate their rights because untill that crazy kid next door goes out and kills a bunch of people we dont want to take a chance that we are going to be wrong a few times. Then theACLU, or the Al Sharpton, and all the do gooders blowing smoke up your butt and sprinkling magic pixi dust in the air will be up our ass with red hot pokers if you get it wrong once in the while. So make your choice, take the chance, or wait for the carnage.

I recall you rejecting the facts I presented about Reagan
You recollection is faulty.

I told you that Reagan was responsible for the worst recession & highest unemployment and you cried and whined and insisted I prove it and I did.

I am sure there is a Reagon hero worship thread on topix but it isn't here.

The USA has 275+ million guns.

If guns were the solution, then there would be no crime in America.

Newtown = NRA put AR-15 in hands of the killer.

if they ban AR 15's for the public, they need to be also banned for law enforcement

And, if we did not have spoons we would not fat people. NRA put a gun no hands, another mental basket case picked a gun to go kill people, not an airplane to fly into a building, not a car to drive in to a group of bystanders and to make sure in his sick twisted vision to so more grandiose than any of other sick bastards before him, he chose a grade school.

Proved what? You never stated what he did… You might have said something about “tax cuts” What might you be referring to??? So, what did he do to cause high unemployment (which we have already established he was NOT president at the start of the recession)?

The recession started in January 1980 and unemployment went from 5.6% to 6.9% in April of 1980 then jumped to 7.5% in may of 1980… Who was president? And what was the unemployment rate in July of 1981?

“If guns were the solution, then there would be no crime in America.” Firearms are a right, not a solution.

“Newtown = NRA put AR-15 in hands of the killer.” He didn’t use the AR-15. If his mom had collected “china” there would be shard in all those people.

It’s obvious you don’t know how to think.

Yeah...that is true. The AR-15 was in Adam Lanza's trunk...but who cares about what type of gun it was anyways? Do people think it is hard to change clips or something? Large clips are for suppression fire, not targeted killing.

PS: pay attention.

More guns were the solution to crime, then the more guns there were, the fewer crimes would result.

Obviously: the contrary is true, especially when looking at specific crimes.

E.G.: spouses killing one another with firearms.

Or neighbors...

Monday

DALLAS ( CBSDFW.COM )– A feud between neighbors at a North Dallas apartment complex turned deadly on Monday morning when a man allegedly shot and killed two neighbors.

According to neighbors at the scene, a man and woman with five kids were shot and killed in the incident. Four of the children were in class at a local elementary school when the shooting took place. An infant child was home during the shooting and was unharmed.

The victim’s neighbors say the deceased man and woman had been in a long standing argument with their downstairs neighbor about the couple’s pets peeing and pooping from the upstairs balcony down onto his balcony.

The downstairs neighbor reportedly fired up from below, killing the woman on the balcony. The suspect then shot and killed the husband in the apartment’s parking lot.
