The NRA is alive and well ~ at least until Biden's A.G. steps in to unscramble the partisan mess Barr and Trump has made of the Justice Department.

Economist?

LOL!

An Economist that is 'best known for his 1998 book, "More Guns, Less Crime."'

Oh dear god.

Probably why, in the old west, may sheriffs required everyone to turn in their guns when they entered the town. Fortunately for America this White House hiring will be of very short time. Thank God Joe Biden won the election and we will finally be rid of the Orange Liar. I hope to never hear his ugly voice again, if they revive The Apprentice I will watch it just as much as I did before; i.e. not at all ever.

Just like the gun grab conducted by the Obama administration. How many times can Republicans use this lie?

Hell Danni, they've used at least since B.Clinton, that's when I started voting, and it's still one of the rights biggest boogie men.

Yeah? How's that "gun grabbing" going?

Nearly five million new gun owners have joined the 100 million-plus gun owners already in the U.S. in 2020, according to recent estimates from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). The same data also shows that 40% of all firearms sales are going to first-time buyers. www.pewresearch.org

Doesn't seem like there's a lot of "grabbing" going on, does it?

You guys have been saying this since the 70's, and yet the number of guns in private hands in the US only goes up every year, never down. Carter didn't grab them, nor Clinton, nor Obama. What makes you think Biden (a gun owner, BTW) is going to?

They don't think. That is the problem. They let conservative media think for them, tell them what they should feel. And conservative media finds it most profitable to tell them to feel afraid, to feel persecuted, to feel angry. And the little snowflakes, gullible little sheep freely let themselves be manipulated into feeling that way. Regardless of what facts or history indicates about whether what they have been ordered to "feel" is valid.

Trump said "I love the uneducated" and this is why. Bet you that Phester had no idea that Biden was a gun owner. Because that is not what conservatives elites have told him to "feel" is true.

Taxes don't equal grabs. Still, idiots with guns is American as *u**.

Isn't a gun buyback when private citizens willingly sell their firearms to the govt/police department?

Hangdown, if you hate guns so much...Don't own one.

Don't spread misinformation about guns in order to try to score political points. The gun problem in America is a factor in why I'm leaving the country

Misinformation? Credible links are called for all the time.

I doubt you've ever held a gun, much less fired one. You seem way too timid.

Comon over. You will be required to keep your room clean and help mow. I'll even give you an allowance.

The Fox News link isn't exactly misinformation, but it's a gun rights advocate making a foolish false equivalency argument that holds no water. Stupids are going to stupid, and all Americans pay the price.

School shooting drills are awesome, but not quite as fun as getting caught up in actual school shootings! /sarcasm

My guess is the idea is to differentiate between guns that are "owned" versus those merely "possessed".

Just for the record - Do you think the department of justice should investigate and prosecute whoever the president tells them to, and ignore whatever crimes the president tells them to?

If so, is that partisan?

Trump hasn't just been partisan, he's been mafia with the DOJ. Enough of the sleazy mob-boss BS
